I had always heard about A. W. Tozer, so it was great for me to finally get the chance to read some of his words.
More than anything, I could feel the love this preacher had for God and how his greatest desire in life was pleasing Him in everything, which is wisdom after all.
However, I must say that I couldn’t connect with A. W. Tozer all the time. I learned from him and I’m grateful for it, but I noticed that, while reading, I was not following him wholeheartedly. This book is worth reading, no doubt, but there were times when it couldn’t get my undivided attention.
There were many interesting insights, though, and he definitely helped me see wisdom in a more profound way.

– “God whispers wisdom to the humble heart.”
– “It is a wonderful thing when you come to the conclusion that only God can help.”
– “It is our incurable bent to imitate that gives example its power.”
Aiden Wilson Tozer was an American evangelical pastor, speaker, writer, and editor.
Born into poverty in western Pennsylvania in 1897, Tozer died in May 1963 a self-educated man who had taught himself what he missed in high school and college due to his home situation. Though he wrote many books, two of them, “The Pursuit of God” and “The Knowledge of the Holy” are widely considered to be classics.
A.W. Tozer and his wife, Ada Cecelia Pfautz, had seven children, six boys and one girl.
