Born After Midnight Review

Book Review: 

A compilation of writings by A.W. Tozer, combined into 34 chapters exhorting readers to move past settling for mediocre Christianity that is no Christianity, but to continue striving, growing, and clinging close to God for sanctification.

Tozer quickly has become one of my favorite authors after reading a few of his books like Knowledge of the Holy. The chapters are short in length but chock full of edifying and convicting insights that encourage me in my faith and remind me to stay alert.

The title of this book comes from the saying that revivals are born after midnight, not because that is the best part of the night, but because those with a genuine seeking faith will continue in endurance, pushing past the midnight hour and into eternity. We must not settle for a convenient faith, one that fits into a nice little box, but one that continues to strive to walk more nearer God, and bring greater glory.

Easy to read, concise, and powerful. This book took a while for me to get through not because it was long in length, but because often I would have to takes breaks to sit back and meditate or absorb the chapters, and often out of a convicted heart. Highly recommend this book, well worth the read, and excellent book on living the Christian life.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
