The Knowledge of the Holy by A. W. Tozer was originally published in 1961 but has become a modern classic treatise about the attributes of God.
Tozer (1897-1963), an evangelical theologian and pastor, helps us understand the nature of God through thoughtful discussion about such topics as: thinking rightly about God, His immutability, God’s Holiness, Devine wisdom, transcendence, justice, and mercy, to name a few.
This short book is divided into 23 chapters; each on a different attribute. Each chapter is short but all ‘meat’, making it a great resource for individual Bible study or small group discussion. It can be found in paperback for a few dollars or downloaded from several free Internet locations. The Knowledge of the Holy is a must study for all Christians.
Prayer. Does it make any difference? Is written by Philip Yancey (Zondervan, 2006) in his easy to understand conversational style.
Yancey explores many of the same questions we all have: Why pray? What should I pray for? How and when should I pray? What difference does it make? Why doesn’t God answer my prayers? Do my prayers actually change God’s mind? Yancy draws on his considerable experience with others to give poignant examples and illustrations for gaining insight into these and many other questions. This book is a candid discussion of prayer for anyone wishing to better understand and deepen their prayer life.
