Immensely rich in its meaning and profoundly insightful! One of Tozer's remarkable gems, ‘The Knowledge of the Holy’ is a wonderful classic, where he deals with the Divine Attributes of God. Having a right view of God will not only allow us to worship better, but will also help us in our practical issues as well. God operates with an infinite number of attributes and all simultaneously and equally. By limiting Him we reduce His influence on the world and our lives. Nothing is more important than a right understanding of God, or thinking rightly about God. When it comes to our thinking about God, everything is at stake. We must think deeply and accurately about God if we are to know Him and worship Him rightly and truthfully.

A thorough reading of this book highlights so many truths about God. We are plunged into the depths of God's character and nature and are left in a state of awe and worship in the presence of a Gracious God. Tozer’s motivation for writing this book was a complaint that christians have forgotten the great writers of the past and that we no longer think particularly highly of God. Crucial to Tozer’s idea is that we worship God as It truly is, lest we come up with ideas about God which are either misguided or incomplete which would lead to a kind of idolatry; this is an idea I wholeheartedly agree with and is the motivation behind why I constantly try to understand God, Christianity and scripture.

I think Tozer does just as good a job of discussing the metaphysical attributes of God as any introductory theology textbook would do. Tozer greatly presented that Theology should never be dry. I found myself blessed as I meditated with Tozer on the majesty and the magnitude of God. This is a must-read, in my opinion, for those who are seeking God with their whole heart. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It reminds me that I need to regularly take time to meditate upon the nature and attributes of God. A high view of God puts each aspect of my life into right perspective. ( )

Writing: 5.0; Theme: 5.0; Content: 5.0; Language: 5.0; Overall: 5.0; Because this was an audio compilation of Tozer's classic book, I rated it as a book. Tozer gives a thorough discussion on the attributes of Jehovah God in the wonderful audio version of this classic volume. This has to be one of the best tomes ever written on the doctrine of God and His attributes. Wonderful. Highly Recommend. ***January 23, 2020*** ( )

A re-read after many years. I came away even more impressed with Tozer's simple, succinct, clear, and profound description of God. It is a classic for a reason, or possibly many. An unvarnished truth told through a mastery of language, from the heart of one who loves the One so ... it's all here. ( )

Probably one of the best books I have ever read. I wish I had taken a Christian Theology class in college with this as the textbook. While this is a short book and can be read in one sitting, it definitely has to be read very carefully, thoughtfully, leisurely, meditatively and slowly. I found myself reading certain passages and then picking up my Bible. I don't think you have to agree with every single thing that Tozer presents. I think he wants the reader to search the truth on their own. I can't wait to read more books and essays by Tozer. ( )

An Inspiring Classic on the Nature of God What is the nature of God? How can we recapture a real sense of God's majesty and truly live in the Spirit? This beloved book, a modern classic of Christian testimony and devotion, addresses these and other vital questions, showing us how we can rejuvenate our prayer life, meditate more reverently, understand God more deeply, and experience God's presence in our daily lives. Informative and inspiring, The Knowledge of the Holy illuminates God's attributes from wisdom, to grace, to mercy and shows through prayerful and insightful discussion, how we can more fully recognize and appreciate each of these divine aspects. This book will be treasured by anyone committed to the Christian faith. It bears eloquent witness to God's majesty and shows us new ways to experience and understand the wonder and the power of God's spirit in our daily lives.
