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.
