Delighting in God by A. W. Tozer complied and edited by James. L. Snyder
From the publisher:
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. We are here to serve and adore him, but we can only fulfill that role by acknowledging who he is, which is the essence of the Christian life and the source of all our fulfillment, joy, and comfort.
A. W. Tozer is someone I see quoted all the time. So when I heard about this compilation I wanted to read it. I always find it interesting when others "finish" a book after someone has died, you find yourself wondering if it is what that author would have written themselves. I think if you have read A. W. Tozer before you will be able to get a feel for whether this is how he would sound and write. Since I haven't read his other works before I can't compare it. But what I can say it that this is a topic I long to further develop in my own spiritual walk--not just the knowledge of God but the delighting in him.
Early on I found myself underlining and marking sections to come back to and think on. A. W. Tozer is a man who doesn't hold back just because he is worried about what other people think. He will challenge and boldly state what he feels needs to be said.
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
