Divine Conquest by A.W. Tozer
The last half of the book is focused on the Holy Spirit. Jennifer added it Jul 24, It is striking, in light of the state of contemporary Christianity, that so many books have come across my attention that deal with the role of the Holy Spirit in the church. D Prasanthi marked it as to-read Jun 26, This book was a loving gift from the Great Comforter.
Return to Book Page. Tozer and his wife, Ada Cecelia Pfautz, had seven children, six boys and one girl. I would highly recommend this book to any honest seeker of God. Don’t read this book unless you are genuinely open to having your life and faith challenged. Unfortunately, “God’s Pursuit of Man” which is to be a prequel of sorts was a disappointment. It is a website that offers free and deeply discounted kindle books.
Rachel Fellowes rated it it was amazing Oct 25, He has a tendency to criticize the church. At its best, it’s an intense picture of the greatness of the Holy Spirit.
Safety and peace come only after we have been forced to our knees. Born into poverty in we Aiden Wilson Tozer was an American evangelical pastor, speaker, writer, and editor. The opinions I have expressed are my own. In the foreword, I found a statement that resonated with me.
The Scriptures and Tozer’s insights convicted me of my “self-sins” self-righteousness, self-confidence, self-seeking, etc and encouraged me to live by the Spirit.
The Holy Spirit pursues the souls and lives of people to conquer them for God. I’m sharing it now tozef you. I was sleepless in the wee hours vonquest the morning, feeling bodily pain from working injuries though I have been retired 11 years.
If you’re in a slump right now with your Christian walk, or just anyone really, this is an absolute must read. In speaking about God’s role in conversion, the author resolves an apparent contradiction between the Calvinist and Arminian view by pointing out that what is a choice on our part is a conquest on the part of God, showing that divine providence and human will are ultimately two sides of the same coin, namely the active and passive aspects of a single relationship.
If you are looking for multiple resources to study the Holy Spirit, I absolutely recommend this book. We bear within us the seeds of our own disintegration.
Now this book is published under the title The Pursuit of Man, but both titles capture the essence of this book: Tozer challenges his readers to embrace this aspect of God, not in the speaking-in-tongues-rolling-in-the-aisles way, but the fact that He does indwell the children of God and is there to help us make decisions, to live purely, to understand Scripture.
He did force me to think more deeply about the Holy Spirit and figure out what the scriptures had to say. Tozer writes more about the absolute need for separation from the world and warns about the different view which we have about the world. Tozer is one solid, old school dude.
I highly recommend this book and The Pursuit of God by Tozer.
