as the deer pants for streams of water“The man who would truly know God must give time to Him.”
~A.W. Tozer (1897-1963)

During Dr. A.W. Tozer’s 44 years of ministry, he authored “more than 40 books, and two are regarded as Christian classics: ‘The Pursuit of God’ and ‘The Knowledge of the Holy. His books impress on the reader the possibility and necessity for a deeper relationship with God. Living a simple and non-materialistic lifestyle, he and his wife never owned a car, preferring bus and train travel. Even after becoming a well-known Christian author, Tozer signed away much of his royalties to those who were in need. Prayer was of vital personal importance for Tozer. ‘His preaching as well as his writings were but extensions of his prayer life,’ comments his biographer, James L. Snyder, in the book, ‘In Pursuit of God: The Life of A.W. Tozer.’ ‘He had the ability to make his listeners face themselves in the light of what God was saying to them,’ writes Snyder” (quote sourcehere).

The two books mentioned above are available to read in their entirety online. The Knowledge of the Holyis available to read online at this link and also by PDF download at this link, and The Pursuit of God is available to read online at this link and also by PDF download at this link). I have included both online books in my two previous blog posts, The Knowledge of the Holy,” and The Pursuit of God,” and I want to bring to your attention a third book that is available online in its entirety titled, Man: The Dwelling Place of God,” at this link and below. It was compiled in 1966 by Anita M. Bailey, and here is her introduction to the book:

Introduction to Man: The Dwelling Place of God

The supreme interest in the life of A.W. Tozer was God: He who spoke and brought the world into being, Who justly rules over men and nations, yet deigns to make man His dwelling place. He believed that all that really matters is for man to be in right relationship with God, that his first duty-and privilege-is “to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” For this reason he delighted to speak to men of God’s majesty and wonder and grace and he ever sought to instruct and exhort Christians to let this be the purpose of their lives. He grieved that they should be content with less.

Nothing he preached or wrote was merely academic or theoretical. What he said about God came out of many hours spent in His presence and with His Word. What he wrote about men was what he knew of his own heart and observed in others. With the Spirit’s anointing came discernment; perception and clarity issued out of a disciplined mind. A broad knowledge averted dullness, and a lively wit brought freshness.

The chapters in this book deal with many aspects of one subject: the relationship of God and man. They are above all practical and all who read them will profit. (Quote source here.)
