The Knowledge of the Holy
By A.W. Tozer
Someone has said that nothing changes a human being faster than a deeper understanding of who God is. It’s true! Our lives are simply the outworking of what we conceive God to be like. Thus, to live rightly, we must think about who God is rightly. A.W. Tozer captured the essence of this thought when he famously wrote in The Knowledge of the Holy, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us…For this reason the gravest question before the Church is always God Himself, and the most portentous fact about any man is not what he at a given time may say or do, but what he in his deep heart conceives God to be like.” To aid us in having a right understanding of who God is, Tozer has written one of the classics on the nature and attributes of God. In each chapter, Tozer gloriously describes another aspect of God’s majestic character and seeks to restore a proper comprehension of who He is to our minds. Is your view of God in need of a little tweeking? I challenge you…pick up this book and behold the beauty and splendor of God again. You won’t be the same!
