"Get on your knees with an outspread Bible," A. W. Tozer challenged his congregation, "and linger in the presence of God." Much has been claimed about the Bible that has obscured the true significance of Scripture for the Christian's life. But now, this never-before-published teaching from renowned preacher and theologian A. W. Tozer brings clarity where there has been confusion. Can we trust the Bible? What is Scripture for? According to Tozer, the Holy Spirit operates through the written Word of God to move believers into an ever deeper experience of God's presence. God's Power for Your Life is more than information about the Bible, however; this book is a guide for experiencing fellowship with the Father through His Word. Discover all the Bible is meant to be for your life with God.
