Personally I find Tozer’s writings to be inspirational, thought provoking and convicting. Rev. James L Synder wrote in his Introduction to this book:
To truly understand Tozer, one must focus on his devotional life. For him, correct doctrine was not enough. He said, “You can be straight as a gun barrel theologically and as empty as one spiritually.” When he preached and taught, he did not stress systematic theology; instead, he emphasized the importance of a personal relationship with God – a relationship so personal and so overpowering as to entirely captivate a person’s attention. He longed for what he called a ‘God-conscious soul’ – a heart aflame for God.
“You can discover , Tozer once instructed, more of the Holy Spirit in five minutes on your knees in adoring worship than five years at a seminary.”
This book, Mystery of the Holy Spirit, is a collection of Tozer’s sermons on the Holy Spririt – given more than half a century ago. I’m certain that Tozer will offer a more indepth look at the Holy Ghost than any I have received up to now. It will be a good study for me.
