The book is a blessing from God.

Tozer expresses himself in ways that is easy to understand but very insightful and deep.

I recently ordered this book after reading Tozer's The Knowledge of the Holy this summer. I was very excited to read this book, as it is another of Tozer's classics. HOWEVER, DO NOT BUY THIS EDITION OF THE BOOK. IT IS ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE! THERE ARE SO MANY TYPOS THAT DISTRACT FROM TOZER'S WRITING. I regret buying this version, and I will probably buy a different version of the book. I am very surprised that this edition even went to print. AMAZON, PLEASE DO NOT SELL THIS FLAWED PRODUCT!

This is one of my favorite books, and I wanted to find an inexpensive copy to give to a friend who hadn't read it yet. But when THIS version (published by "W_L_C") showed up on my doorstep, I found it to be such a pathetic attempt at publishing that I would never give it away as a gift to anyone.
First of all: There are numerous spelling and typographical errors. I wish I would've read the other reviews here before I purchased this book - because I see now that other people have mentioned it too.

Also, there is at least one page where the printing (ink) was done so poorly that there were ENTIRE WORDS missing.

The little synopsis or back cover copy that tells briefly what the book is about (STANDARD on most published books) is completely missing. You know what's on the back cover? A numbered list of all the chapter titles. As in:
1. Following Hard after God
2. The Blessedness of Possessing Nothing
etc

And that's it! I wonder how someone could possibly put less effort into publishing a book?!

AND FINALLY: it's kind of hard to see on the thumbnail of the product image, but the graphic at the top of the cover is some kind of new-agey take on Leonardo's Vitruvian Man in blue light and it just really doesn't fit with the feel of the book itself. It is a really misplaced graphic, and that, along with all the other items of disappointment, make me wonder if whoever published this book HAS EVER ACTUALLY READ IT?! :/

Very sad. And it's such a great book too, I hate to see it disrespected this way.

PLEASE do not buy this version of the book. I hope Amazon removes it. Poorly done.

This book is life changing if one were to read it and apply it to ones life. I'm reading through it with my small group at church and it's a great book to discuss. It's not a book that should be quickly read just to say you've read a work of Tozer, but it needs appropriate time and the clarity of mind to really grasp what the author is trying to communicate. I believe it is Holy Spirit inspired and it would make a great jumpstart to any Christian's life.

A note about this particular edition: it is not the best version of this book, which is why I give it a mere three stars. There are many typos throughout the book, but the number of mistakes seem to lessen as you go further into the book. If spelling errors really bother you, as I am bothered by them, I would suggest buying a different version.

Based on the content of the book (spelling errors aside) I would give it a 5 star rating.

For mature Christians - a definite challenge to go deeper in our relationship with God! Tozer's writing crosses the span of time (written in the 40's), and is still relevant today!

I'm only halfway through this book, but it's well worth the read. The first chapter alone is packed with so much goodness you have to camp out on each page just to soak it in. "To have found God and still to pursue Him is the soul's paradox of love," p.12 It's not a very large book, but it's packed full of solid insight observations about God and His Word.

I liked this book so much that I bought three more to give to my friends. There were so many times that I thought " I never thought about it like that". I highly recommend it. Typos were distracting though .

Small book with life changing impact. It isn't something you read as much as you digest and reflect on. Some of the language is a bit out of fashion, but the concepts are true today.
A divinely inspired book.

I bought this book for my girlfriend, she finished it pretty quickly, the book is not too long and not too short. Great messages and the book was brand new.
