I have recently been reading through the book "The Wisdom of God - Letting His Truth and Goodness Direct Your Steps" by A.W. Tozer. True to form, Tozer delivers a whole lotta punch in each and every chapter. It's heady, weighty stuff, this book; it's meat and potatoes of the spiritual sort.
In short, do not read this book if you are looking for soft serve, cuz this ain't that.
This book is comprised of 23 chapters, none of which is very long. They are short, but pack a powerful punch. Each chapter has enough to say that you feel as if you have read far more than a few pages. The core of the subject matter is the Lord's wisdom; the applications of this topic spread far and wide. There is far more to this than I had previously thought, and it has proven that my own studies of wisdom as laid out in the Bible have been scant at best. It's an education in wisdom. And of course, as with any type of education, there is homework. Said homework being the application of these truths in ones own life.
If you know much about Tozer, this book will be similar to what you have read before. If you have never heart of A.W. Tozer, be prepared to learn a lot from this man who lives on via his writings, though he went home with the Lord in 1963. You may recognize his other books, such as The Knowledge of the Holy or The Pursuit of God.
Whether or not you have heard of the author, you may want to prayerfully consider picking up a copy of this book. But be sure, it's not light reading.
On my "Page Turner Scale" of 1 to 5, I gave this book a 4.
