Format: Paperback
I am so glad to see these two books (The Attributes of God Vol. 1 and Vol. 2) re-released to the public after having gone out of print. J.I. Packer once wrote, "Theology is for doxology", simply put; the study of God should lead us to praise Him forevermore. Few people lead us down that path as skillfully as A.W. Tozer. While I recommend all Tozer's books, these two books in particular, are vitally important in today's age where true knowledge of God seems to be disappearing at a rapid pace in favor of a "have God your own way" mentality. But the truth is this; God is (as He is and who He is) infinitely more wonderful and beautiful than we could ever have imagined Him on our own. There is no higher activity that the human mind can engage in than the study of God's character - Tozer helps us with this plus invites our hearts to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord.

Volume One contains the following chapters; God's Infinitude; God's Immensity; God's Goodness; God's Justice; God's Mercy; God's Grace; God's Omnipresence; God's Immanence; God's Holiness; and God's Perfection.

This book is not just intended to be merely read, but also to be pondered deeply upon and prayed through. You will find it time well spent as you ask the Holy Spirit to take that which belongs to the Lord and make it known to you (John 16:14).

A friend of mine suggested this book after her women's group read it together as a study guide on God's attributes. I had read several books on the attributes of God and have studied the topic as well, so I was reluctant to read another book on the topic.

But, I got the book solely on my friend's recommendation, because I value her opinion. I must say I am very glad I did. First off, Tozer is a very gifted writer. He writes about very thought provoking topics, yet does so in understanding ways. He is extremely insightful and brought up some things I have never thought about. Plus, he answered some questions I have had for decades.

The book is about more than common ideas and concepts on the attributes of God. You know the basics - God is all knowing, omnipresent, omnipowerful. Tozer goes way beyond that. And, rightly so. One insightful thing Tozer mentioned was that a society will never rise above its concept of God. I had never thought about that, but once stated it makes perfect sense. The book is full of such jewels.

I can't say enough good things about Tozer. Since finding him I have shared other of his books with friends and they are impressed as well. It is said that Tozer has on his tombstone simply "A Man of God". No truer words were ever written.

Get this book, you won't be sorry!

I have learned from every book of Tozer's that I have read and I have quite a few of his books. The Attributes of God is an excellent book. Our view of God gets pretty watered down and we tend to forget just who God really is. This book gave me a new perception of God. Tozer bases all of his writings on scripture and I like that. I have recommended this to several of my family members and friends.

What more can I say. I have found so much in these books that leave me amazed, that make me raise my hands and worship God. The information draws me nearer to God, fleshes out the picture of God in my heart. I can speak more confidently about Him and to Him. I have always suspected that there was something wrong with the popular picture of a super nice God, who is all-forgiving and who has a sugary-sweet loving nature.
These books have given me a biblically-balanced view of God. He is so much more than the popular version. I find myself in awe of Him even with a tinge of fear (not the scary type) but one of "He truly is GOD!"

Now that I am starting to understand His attributes, I begin to see how wonderful our salvation really is, why the work on the cross is so significant and why everyone MUST bow their knees and call Him Lord.

I sincerely believe that these books are a MUST READ for every Christian. I mean, how else are you going to follow Him, if you have no idea Who He is and what He is truly like?

If they can rate these books 10 stars, I will do so.

A.W Tozer is with our Lord even now, and as he lives in glory with the Lord that He has written so much about, he probably realises that these books he wrote, however excellent and true, are but shadows and the foothills of Who are Lord really is.

I thank God that these books are available.

A Tozer classic created from a compilation of sermons gathered from tapes recorded in Tozer's church, Southside Alliance in Chicago. The "Attributes" is skillfully presented by David Fessenden in a form fitting of Tozer, capturing both the cantor and practical theology of Tozer. Fessenden includes a practical study guide for each attribute which coincides with each chapter. The study guide adds to the personal utility of a subject that is very elusive due to God's immensity. Fessenden enables the reader to stop and ponder , in group or singularly, the implications of seeing God as He is and letting Him be the "great I AM" attribute by attribute.

Volume 1 of "the Attributes of God" does not include an introduction which is included in volume 2. This is unfortunate for readers not familiar with Tozer who could benefit from Tozer's explanation of his impetuous to write and preach. Tozer explains in the introduction of Volume 2 the dilemma of the church in reducing God to a barely elevated, if not equal, plane as man. He explains how this limited concept interferes with worship and awe of the Creator. He describes the danger of this thinking both for the individual and for the Church as the Body of Christ. Tozer states "We put our spiritual life on a budget". His description of the skewed version of God prepares the reader to enter into a heavenly definition which he presents as the attributes of the "I AM".

Without introduction, Volume 1, propels the reader into the first of ten attributes, Infinitude. Immensity, Goodness, Justice, Mercy, Grace, Omnipresence, Immanence, Holiness and Perfection follow. Suprisingly, Tozer introduces the reader to mystics such as Julian of Norwich .
