A.W. Tozer's wordsmithing, theology and penetrating barbs into modern culture are still as relevant today as they were 50 to 80 years ago when he was alive and writing. Every time I read this book I shocked into repentance of my shallow slavery commitments to Christ and just scratch my head as he continues to peg our culture long after his death. It seems that every other sentence that Tozer wrote needs to be tweeted. @TozerAW has beat us all to it and is worth following on Twitter. I thought that any review of the Tweetable Tozer would be remiss without some solid tweetable tweets. "The man who has God for his treasure has all things in One." "There is within the human heart a tough, fibrous root of fallen life whose nature is to possess, always to possess." "The pronouns, my and mine look innocent enough in print...they are verbal symptoms of our deep disease." "Whoever defends himself will have himself for his defense, and he will have no other. "But let him come defenseless before the Lord and he will have for his defender no less than God Himself." I could go on since the above quotes are just from the first 30 pages of the book. Plain and simple: this is a must read, a must own, and a must read yearly kind of book.

This book was such a wonderful blessing to read. It was just what I needed, as I have been longing for more of the Lord in my life. It was by far better than what I expected.
