Review: Delighting In God by:A.W. Tozer/James L. Snyder

Delighting in God
About the Book:
Understand Your Life's Purpose by Better Understanding God

"My worship grows and grows as my perception of God grows. God cannot grow. My perception of God grows as I experience Him day after day. I should be more capable of worshiping God today than I was ten or twenty years ago."

Delighting in God is the message Tozer intended to be the follow-up to The Knowledge of the Holy. He demonstrates how the attributes of God--those things God has revealed about himself--are a way to understand the Christian life of worship and service. Because we were created in the image of God, to understand who we are, we need to understand who God is and allow His character and nature to be reflected through us. 

We are here to serve and adore Him, and we can only fulfill that role by acknowledging who He is. This is the essence of the Christian life and the source of all our fulfillment, joy, and comfort.

My Review:
 A. W. Tozer, one of the greats! He was a fascinating individual most if not all of his quotes are still used today. Tozer's passion as stated in Delighting In God by the author is that He wanted to preach on God, that was his main concern. He didn't want to speak to a congregation that was satisfied with medicroty, he wanted to speak to the individual that wanted their lives taken over by God. My husband and I so want that for our lives. I loved Tozer's work. To be someone of his caliber is awe inspiring. After-all, it's not easy to have the courage to tell God take me, use me. It's scary to say the least---but this was the type of man Tozer was. He is a great role model for us today.

 If he was here and could see the condition of the church I'm sure he would be very displeased---because it is far worse than when he left for his heavenly home. I love this quote from the book"If our perception of God is compromised, everything about our understanding of God is also compromised." Amazing words coming from a man of God that told it like it was. He didn't sugar coat anything. Perfect way of thinking for these days and times.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
