This month's book giveaway is a wonderful and encouraging daily devotional, Mornings With Tozer.
I have to admit that A.W. Tozer's writings are relatively new to me. I discovered Tozer through another man greatly used of God--Vance Havner (and if you can find any of Havner's sermons or books, I strongly would recommend them!)
Vance Havner spoke of A.W. Tozer as a "prophet," in the sense that Tozer had a prophetical, Scriptural word for the modern day church, a church that he saw as slowly leaving it's first Love.
You will be changed through reading Tozer. His words are challenging and convicting; they may even make you shift uncomfortably in your seat. Tozer wasn't one to beat around the bush. He speaks candidly, he speaks truthfully, He speaks with grace; He speaks of what Dietrich Bonhoeffer called "costly grace."
The Lord has used Tozer in my life to open my eyes towards the complacency of the modern Christian Church, a complacency that we often embrace without even realizing it. His words will challenge you; they will encourage you; they will spur you on towards a deeper walk with our Lord Jesus. And after you've read Mornings with Tozer, pick up some of his other works . . . I know that they will bless you.
Description from the Publisher:
"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life." -Psalm 143:8 (NIV)
Grab your coffee, find your favorite chair, and begin your day with guidance from A. W. Tozer.
Many of these 365 devotional readings come from sermons Tozer preached close to his death in 1963, marking them with a deep concern for spiritual intimacy and true worship. He urges you to pursue God, confess sin, pray fervently, and seek the Spirit. Let this book be a garnish in your feast of God's Word.
As you welcome the morning light and all the sights and sounds of the new day, let Mornings with Tozer awaken your heart.
A.W. TOZER began his lifelong pursuit of God at the age of seventeen after hearing a street preacher in Akron, Ohio. A self-taught theologian, Tozer was a pastor, writer and editor whose powerful use of words continues to grip the intellect and stir the soul of today's reader. Among his best-loved books are the classics The Pursuit of God and The Attributes of God.
