I was surprised by how tiny this book is. It's more of a booklet than an actual book but don't let its size fool you. Tozer packed a powerful Spiritual punch in under 80 pages. This little book will not let you walk away untouched and unconvicted.
Tozer discusses the reasons why Christians are not living to their Spiritual fullest, why believers are dead and indifferent to the Holy Spirit. But he answers with what we can do about it and how we can have revival today. This little bomb is not for the easily offended, it is for those who are willing to listen to the clarion call. He makes a strong claim for Christian obedience which will probably step on some toes but no apologies. This book is for the mature Christian hungry for meat, not milk.
Some of my favorite quotes from the book:
"To escape the error of salvation by works we have fallen into the opposite error of salvation without obedience."
"To the casual observer today of the religious scene today, two things will at once be evident: one, that there is little sense of sin among the unsaved, and two, that the average professed Christian lives a life so worldly and careless that it is difficult to distinguish him from the unconverted man."
" We can have feeling without faith, it is true, but we can never have faith without feeling. Faith as a cold, unemotional light is wholly unknown in the Scriptures."
"It may be stated as an axiom of the Christian system that whatever makes sin permissible is a foe of God and an enemy of the souls of men."
I received a copy of this book from Moody in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
