Book Review: The Wisdom of God

source
A. W. Tozer's The Wisdom of God seeks to 'change your decisions attitudes, and relationships, setting you on the path to becoming all God wants you to be.

Having never read any of Tozer's works, I was not sure what to expect.  Was it going to be dry and difficult or challenging and thought provocative?  It was definitely the latter.  Tozer's writing style made it quite easy to follow along as he tackled a deep subject matter--wisdom.

The first few chapters were a little hard to get into but I suppose he was setting a foundation for the topic.  Once you got past them, you were glad you pressed on.  Wisdom is so clearly explained and shown how to be practically applied in the Christian life.  It was portrayed as vitally necessary in the Christian walk for all believers as opposed to something only reserved for the elderly. Tozer's juxtaposition of worldly wisdom and godly wisdom left the reader with a clear understanding as to why the believer must seek the latter and abhor the former.  The warnings against the evil man and the strange woman remain a timely message.

Tozer's conversational style of writing with its cut to the chase manner made this not only an enjoyable read but a profound one.  There is much to consider during the reading and even more left for introspection afterwards.  I would highly recommend this book any one seeking to further understand godly wisdom for its personal application.

                                                                              I received this book for free from Bethany House for this review.
