|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

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.

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
I was challenged in my thinking about God. Trying to make God more in my image for the sake of understanding, even for teaching/preaching purposes was something I was guilty of. But after reading Tozer, I was challenged to not diminish who God is by using metaphorical language that put him in our grasp of understanding. He is beyond that. Always has been and always will be.
I was inspired by the same fact. He is not someone I can wrap my understanding around. He is more. And He always was and always will be.
I love teaching on the attributes of God. But from this point on, I will ensure that if I use metaphorical language to try and describe him, I will also ensure that in my own heart and in the hearts of those listening, we will know that He is more!
There is a prayer that starts each chapter which is in itself a gem!! Read this along with your Bible for a very special time with the Lord.
