The Christian Book of Mystical Verse Review

Book Review: 

I have only recently acquired an interest in Christian poetry and written prayers. I was happy to find that Tozer had made a compilation of his favorite hymns, poems, and prayers from various writers. According to Tozer, these poems reflect Biblical theology, not just feel-good fuzzy feelings which I appreciate.

This compilation contains 111 passages arranged into 15 different topics. I like that he included works from many different writers, most of which I had never heard of before. I also hadn't heard most of these poems before but I liked several.

Of course, there are much better compilations of prayers, poems, et al out there (I personally love The Valley of Vision) but if you like Tozer and are interested in his favorite poems and prayers then by all means pick up this book. This is a good place to start with Christian poetry.

I received a copy of this book from Moody in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
