In this day of soundbytes and celebrity gossip, there are far too few opportunities to pull away from the daily grind and really contemplate the deep mysteries of God. But here’s such a thought: “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.”

If John’s sparsely worded (but densely packed) statement describing the incarnation of God doesn’t press against your capacity to feel wonder and awe, then consider this: How could deity—with no beginning and no end—cross the gulf separating what is God from what is not God? How could the infinite ever become the finite? How could that which has no limit deliberately impose upon himself limitations? Great is the mystery of the Incarnation.

And He Dwelt among Us presents A. W. Tozer’s voice in a unique way—as a great teacher who appreciates the mystical nature of John’s Gospel while keeping his feet on solid doctrinal ground. His Spirit-led explanations will help your thoughts rise to the rarefied atmosphere of adoration of the One who became flesh so that we could know him, become his, and worship him forever.

“‘Search your soul, do something for yourself, start over, take a day off, get before God, pray through, get something new on you so that you won’t be petered out and become one more old beat up preacher who can talk about holy things like it is shop talk … who can talk about the name of Jesus Christ without any break in the voice … who can talk about heaven without any excitement … who can talk about God without any reference.’” (Page 11)

“We have heard the same thing repeated until we are bored. I do not blame those who repeat, because it is necessary that we continue to say the same things. What I complain about is that we are unconscious of that Presence of the one who can take the familiar word and make it brilliantly new. We are dying by degrees in evangelical circles because we are resting in the truth of the Word and are forgetting that there is a Spirit of the Word without which the truth of the Word means nothing to the human spirit at last.’” (Page 11)

“The reality that everywhere you go you see people who manifest a deep-seated restlessness shows that there is something deep within the soul, put there by God, that yearns for this everlastingness that is only found in God.” (Page 18)

“John is pushing us and encouraging us to ascend into the rarified atmosphere of experiencing God in the wonderment of His everlastingness.” (Page 17)

“To Tozer, any doctrine that did not rise to the height of identification with the Lord Jesus Christ was either misunderstood or not properly rooted in Scripture. He believed that there were two sides to doctrine. First, doctrine establishes truth and helps us to recognize developing heresies within the Church and how to deal with them. Second, doctrine is a path to the intimate knowledge of God. All things must point to Him who dwelt among us.” (Pages 8–9)

A. W. Tozer

A. W. Tozer (1897–1963) was a dynamic preacher, prolific writer, and a no-nonsense man of God. Aiden Wilson Tozer responded to the call of Christ at the age of 17. After becoming an active witness of Jesus as a lay preacher, he joined The Christian and Missionary Alliance and was soon serving as the pastor of West Virginia’s Alliance Church.

In 1928, he transferred to the Southside Alliance Church in Chicago where he served for 31 years. During that time he preached on the Moody Bible Institute’s radio station and was often invited to speak at Wheaton College in Pierce Chapel. Tozer spent the final years of his life as the pastor of Avenue Road Church in Toronto and the editor of The Alliance Life magazine.

Tozer authored over 40 books, including The Attributes of God, Volume One, Tozer on Christian Leadership, We Travel an Appointed Way, The Pursuit of God, and God’s Pursuit of Man.

James L. Snyder is the pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala, Florida, a Christian and Missionary Alliance church (1973–present). He is recognized as an authority on the life and ministry of A. W. Tozer, and has written a number of books as well as numerous essays in Christian periodicals about Tozer. He has a weekly radio ministry, writes a weekly syndicated newspaper column carried by 35 newspapers, as well as over a dozen monthly magazines, both online and print.
