From the Inside Flap
This classic of Christian testimony and devotion explores the attributes of God in words that fly straight to the heart. A superb aid to strengthening and deepening the spiritual life, each chapter begins with a prayer, lucidly discusses a divine aspect--from God's infinity to God's love--and relates that aspect to today's world, while pointing always to God's wonder and inscrutability.
Tozer asserts that the cause of many of our modern spiritual woes is the loss in today's church of a lofty concept of God. He argues persuasively that the cure lies in our rediscovery of God's majesty. "What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us," he writes. "The history of mankind will probably show that no people has ever risen above its religion, and man's spiritual history will positively demonstrate that no religion has ever been greater than its idea of God." The Knowledge of the Holy bears eloquent witness to the concept of God's majesty, encourages reverent meditation on the being of God, and offers a way to bring back spiritual power to our lives.

The purity of AW Tozer. Both The Knowledge of the Holy and The Pursuit of God are considered Christian Classic literature. Each chapter is maybe 5-6 pages long, but will leave you deep in thought, enabling you to see God as you never thought possible.
After having been through the series, Behold Your God, our men's group followed up this excellent teaching with The Knowledge of the Holy. After reading just a few chapters, it leads you to a realization, as Tozer teaches, that the purest way to God is through faith and love, in real relationship, and not through the intellect. Because man is a finite being, earth bound and given to his own reconceived notions of God, we are likely to build idolatrous views of God in the mind and intellect. God is all loving, and because He is, He desires to be in intimate relationship with each one of us. Once we undertake such a pursuit, God takes you on a spiritual journey that will last a lifetime. Love the Lord your God and pursue Him only. Chapter 21, on the Holiness of God, could be one of his best.
I started reading it at my normal pace...but quickly understood this one is a study book!
I read it with a ruler, pen to underline, and highlighter all 'at the ready' - every page practically is got my writing all over it.
The book pulls NO punches....it's a wonderful form of 'tough love' in a world where God's word and God himself has been TOO watered down into a 'nice politically correct package' that allows people to justify their fleshly choices.
I loved it - we loved it. It's a Blessing for sure
