The book is a collection of writings from the people who influenced A.W. Tozer compiled by James Stuart Bell. It's slow reading, and it should be to have maximum absorption. In his introduction, Bell writes very enthusiastically about Tozer. He's a big fan. I haven't read a single thing by Tozer and I'm intrigued. But I'm not done with the book yet.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Instead of rushing through the review I am choosing to slowly go through every page with a pen and a highlighter to capture its words, to use later when I need inspiration, and to keep this book in my permanent library. It's going to take me the rest of this year to finish the book. That is why I am writing the review now. I love this book!
I would heartily recommend the book for those wishing to learn of A.W. Tozer's influences. Be warned that in reading this book you will not go through it quickly. It's a little dry in places and some pages have a slight catholic influence. I garnered wisdom from writers such as St. Augustine, D.L. Moody, and Thomas Kempis. Some of the essays consoled me during moments of self-doubt and wondering. I am enjoying the journey of learning about the theologians that a friend had once tried to convince me to read.
