Culture Review

Book Review: 

I have always enjoyed the teachings of classic theologian A.W. Tozer. This current compiled series of Tozer's works has so far been wonderful. The series includes books on the following biblical concepts:

- Culture

- Disipleship

- Church

- Jesus

- Prayer

- Worship

This particular book on Culture has the following theme: Living as Citizens of Heaven and Earth. It is structured with twenty-four chapters, each of which are quite brief for Tozer's writings, anywhere from 2 pages to 4 pages long. His teachings are compiled from both his personal writings and his sermons - but these are not noted specifically throughout the book itself. He covers a whole range of cultural topics - even taxes!

For many, Tozer can teach in a way that is very difficult to understand and follow. The more you read his writings, the more you begin to grasp the way he thinks, preaches, and teaches. Some of this difficulty comes from the fact that his writings and preaching take on the old language from his era.

Despite these obstacles, I believe anyone who reads Tozer's teachings will gain an immense amount of biblical wisdom and knowledge.

This was a particularly enjoyable read as it seemed to be very applicable to today's current cultural issues facing believers.

I received a copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
