"... some of the best devotional verse the English language affords..."
While the term "mystic" may have connotations that reach beyond traditional Christian thinking, it actually refers to a common spiritual experience that unites anyone who has fellowship with God.
The poems in this book were hand-picked by Tozer and follow a logical pattern, going in line with the very nature of salvation itself and the death of Jesus on the cross, man's contemplation of his own sin, redemption, communion with God, awaiting the return of Christ, and celebrations of eternal fellowship with God in Heaven.
Both intimate and exhilarating, The Christian Book of Mystical Verse is a book for anyone who seeks to worship God the Father, and who finds the rich language of Christians of old a great help in that endeavor.
This book is a collection of poems, hymns and prayers chosen by A. W. Tozer and they are so very inspiring and beautiful!
There are different sections on specific subjects such as "Adoration of the Godhead', "Delighting in God's Presence", and "Joyous Anticipation of Christ's Return" and many more. I really was so touched by these writings as they made me think of the holiness of God and Christ.
Each writing has the author after it so that if you're so inclined (which I was), you can look up more by that author. I really liked that because it gave me the opportunity to find new authors that point to the glory and grace of God.
This book has become part of my devotional time as it prepares my heart and softens it for my time with God. I really love this book and it's one of the most beautiful volumes I've ever read. I highly recommend it and give it 5 stars!
