Understand your life's purpose by better understanding God.

"My worship grows and grows as my perception of God grows. God cannot grow. My perception of God grows as I experience Him day after day. I should be more capable of worshiping God today than I was ten or twenty years ago."

Delighting in God is the message Tozer intended to be the follow-up to The Knowledge of the Holy. He demonstrates how the attributes of God – those things God has revealed about himself – are a way to understand the Christian life of worship and service. Because we were created in the image of God, to understand who we are, we need to understand who God is and allow His character and nature to be reflected through us. 

We are here to serve and adore Him, and we can only fulfill that role by acknowledging who He is. This is the essence of the Christian life and the source of all our fulfillment, joy, and comfort.

Delighting in God is a compilation of several of A.W. Tozer’s sermons, focusing on the attributes of God and how we perceive Him. Each chapter clearly conveys Tozer’s passion faith and offers his convicting perspective about living a life of faith. It’s a valuable read, and I found it to be entirely thought-provoking. I recommend Delighting in God to Christian readers, especially fans of Tozer - it’s a beneficial and worthwhile book.

Thanks to Bethany House, I received a copy of Delighting in God and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
