Reflections on Christ, from a beloved spiritual writer
A. W. Tozer was a man of remarkable knowledge, an avid reader of Christian writers and philosophers from throughout the ages. But he meditated on the Bible. He was, like John Wesley, “a man of one Book and a student of many.”
Combine this with his poignant writing style and you have works like this one, high thoughts of God brought low, yet no less moving.
Jesus: The Life and Ministry of God the Son features selections from Tozer's writings on the God-man, Jesus Christ. It follows the chronology of Christ's earthly life and explores classic themes of Christology, helping readers better comprehend and appreciate Jesus' person and work.
When you set out to study Christ, you want to behold His splendor the best you can. That's why writers like A. W. Tozer are excellent guides: they love the Lord, know Him well, and yet have a way with the written word. They're able to lay the weight of glory on the human heart as few can.
Read Jesus and appreciate anew the Savior of the world and the power of the written word to glorify His name.
Jesus: The Life and Ministry of God the Son - Collected Insights from A.W. Tozer is a fascinating book that shares remarkable truths and insights about Jesus Christ. This is a book that I highly recommend to anyone who has a desire to better understand Jesus.
I have to be completely honest, this is the first book I've read by A.W. Tozer. Initially, I did not know what to expect, but I soon found myself engrossed in his writings and rich insights into the Son of God. A. W. Tozer writes honestly and plainly, enabling readers to grasp the concepts he explores and come away with a better understanding of the subject.
It's important for readers to know that this book is a compilation of A.W. Tozer's writings on the subject of Jesus Christ. The editor has consolidated his writings and presented them in a form to maximize readers comprehension of his thoughts and perspectives on the nature and qualities of Jesus Christ. Each chapter can standalone, but together they deliver a rich offering of insights on Christ.
This book is a very helpful resource and that has increased my understanding of Jesus. A.W. Tozer was undoubtedly a wise man and it's a pleasure to read his writings decades later and glean from his studies and God's revelations to Him. I am looking forward to reading even more of his books. This good is a great read!
I would heartily recommend this book as the selected topics are vital to the cultivation of a robust spiritual life. Christology is one of the most crucial theological doctrines since the Christian life is utterly dependent on person and work of Jesus Christ. Tozer's reflections and pastoral concerns are just as important to believers today as doctrinal and cultural attacks on Christianity most often involve rejections or distortions of Christ as presented to us in the Bible. We need to embrace Jesus as the perfect God-man who has always existed with the Father and Spirit but chose to put on human nature as part of God's divine redemption plan. Tozer shows us that He is Creator, Sustainer, Benefactor, Miracle Worker, Saviour, Offering, Lord, Remedy, Mediator, and Priest. When we continuously meditate on what Scripture teaches us about Christ, we will enjoy sweeter fellowship with God and aim to walk blameless lives to prepare ourselves to meet our King.
