Discipleship 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 Discipleship is structured with thirteen chapters, each of which are quite brief for Tozer's writings, typically 3-4 pages long. Every chapter follows the same format: begins with a scripture reference followed by Tozer's teachings on that particular passage. His teachings are compiled from both his personal writings and his sermons - but these are not noted specifically throughout the book itself.

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.

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