A.W. Tozer (1897-1963) wrote numerous books during his lifetime. He was a self-taught theologian and pastor.(1) This particular work has been edited by James L Snyder.
While Mr. Tozer wrote during the 20th Century, his thoughts speak of concerns of present-day evangelical Christians.
The book has rather short chapters, each beginning with a verse or a passage of scripture. At the end of each chapter, the words to a Christian hymn follows.
The author and the editor have broken down the act of worship into various morsels that we need to consider as we evaluate our worship experience.
I enjoy reading Tozer’s writings. I especially liked this book because, in it Mr. Tozer gave me a few things to think on as I prepare to worship. One point Mr. Tozer made that stood out to me is that we have to experience God before we can know Him. I enjoyed the hymns chosen for the end of each chapter. Most of them were familiar to me and I knew their tunes.
I would recommend this book to anyone who feels the lack of “something” in their worship of God.
This book would make a good group study book.
I received this book free from Bethany House, division of Baker Publishing Group.
All they asked of me was that I give a truthful, honest review.
