Often quoted by Chuck Swindoll, Charles Stanley, Billy Graham and other great preachers, A. W. Tozer’s words are being heard and read by millions today words like:
- “Origin is a creature word… All things have an origin. But when you come back to God, you come back to the One who has not origin. He is the Cause of all things, the uncaused Cause. God is Transcendent.”
- “You’ll never find Him on your own… He is far away in one sense, but in another He is as near as your heartbeat, for the cross has brdiged the gulf.”
- “If there is anything God could learn, it would mean that God didn’t know it before. If he didn’t know it before, then He didn’t know everything, He wouldn’t be perfect, and if He isn’t perfect then He isn’t God.”
The chapters of this book were originally preached as sermons at Avenue Road Church in Toronto, ON. Whether spoken or written, Tozer’s words were designed to “promote personal heart religion” among God’s people.

I picked this book off a friends bookshelf one time, while we stayed with them a few days. I couldn't put it down. It's a really excellent book that will leave you marvelling at God and His work. You'll find yourself reading parts out to people, underlining things, and sharing quotes on Facebook!
