Monthly Book Giveaway: Mornings With Tozer

For more information about Monthly Book Giveaways, click HERE



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.
Author Biography (from the publisher):

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.

    1. Amanda, Chambers is one of my very favorites; his words have been such an encouragement in my life! I'm just beginning to discover Tozer; his biography is so, so wonderful, and The Pursuit of God was excellent. I haven't read The Calvary Road--I'll have to keep my eyes out for it! Blessings in Christ to you, Amanda! :-)

  3. I think Streams In The Desert has most profoundly affected and influenced me. I have read several other devotionals through the years, but none has seemed to hold the depths that book holds. My Papaw was pastor of our church for nearly 40 years, and this was his favorite devotional...he then passed it on to Mom...Mom passed it on to me. It is definitely worth your time, if you haven't read it. It is a compilation of many authors. Thanks for the chance to win this! :)

    1. Cheryl, I actually ordered Streams in the Desert and began reading it after you suggested it to me (a month or so ago, I think!) I am gleaning so much from it . . . You are right, it holds such depths of wisdom and joy in the Lord. I am so grateful for the way that the Lord uses the words of His dear saints to encourage those who come after. The Lord bless you, Cheryl; have a wonderful weekend! :-)

    1. You're welcome, Kyrie! The Lord has used these books/authors in my life in such a powerful way; I feel like He wants me to share the them with others because they have been so encouraging . . . I'm glad that you stopped here!

      I saw your other comment, too! I have just begun reading Streams in the Desert and it is such a blessing. :-)

  11. I forgot to comment about a devotional writer. The last devotional book I studied through was a couple of years ago, and had been contributed to by several authors. When my sister and I were younger, my Mom would read from "Streams in the Desert" to us almost every morning before we started our day. It was highly influential. I often read from the "Our Daily Bread" publication now.

  12. Very cool, Rebekah. Sarah Young via Jesus calling was a big life changer for a couple of years. Haven't done a Blackaby Devo yet but love his other books. And right now, Rick Renner's Sparkling Gems in the Greek is rocking my world. Thanks for this suggestion to add to my devo arsenal :-)

  15. I love the usuals: Tozer, Chambers, but I must say that Madeleine L'Engle's non-fiction has often served a devotional purpose for me. Thanks for this great post! I'm motivated to get out my Tozer for a re-read.

    1. Michele, I love Chambers and Tozer; I've only read one of L'Engle's books (as far as I remember) but I have heard very good things about her writing. Blessings to you! :-)
