Jesus Review

Book Review: 

This is a collection of Tozer writings on the character and personhood of Jesus. He addresses the attributes of Jesus as the Son of God, the messianic prophecies that identify Him as the Messiah, the importance of His crucifixion and resurrection, and His character as part of the Godhead. These seventeen chapters each talk about an aspect of Jesus as He relates to our Christian faith.

While I enjoyed most of the book and found some great quotes to highlight, I was expecting more on the character of God. Tozer spends the first few chapters on that but gets sidetracked in the last couple of chapters where he talks mainly about the misconceptions and wrong teachings Bible teachers and pastors promote about Jesus. I don't fault Tozer on this but rather whoever compiled these essays. This is a problem I have seen in various other Tozer volume compilations. This is the reason why I'm taking away 1 star.

The content, in general, is really good. I always enjoy reading Tozer, he has a unique style of writing that leaves you to ponder and meditate long after you have finished a book. This book is especially beneficial for new believers who are hungry to learn about Jesus.

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