This relatively short work by the late theologian is a good introduction to evangelical Christian theology. Tozer, who was able to see trends in the evangelical community that are apparent today, describes what the attributes of God are. This is theology in the literal sense. In this soberly written, though by no means dry or dense, work, Tozer advocates a return to a reverent view of God that would inform our lives and our actions. Scott Bricks narration is sober, measured, and deliberate, but never monotonous or devoid of feeling. His performance is an appropriate combination of sermon and lecture.
A.W. Tozer (1897–1963) was born on a small farm in what is now Newburg, Pennsylvania. His family moved to Akron, Ohio, when he was just a young boy. At the age of 17, Tozer heard a street preacher, responded to the calling of Christ, and began his lifelong pursuit of God. 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 1919. He transferred to the Southside Alliance Church in Chicago in 1928, and his ministry continued there for 31 years. During that time he preached on the Moody Bible Institute’s radio station. In the 1940s Tozer was invited to speak at Wheaton College, and seldom a year passed after World War II that he didn’t preach in the college’s Pierce Chapel. In 1950 he became the editor of The Alliance Life magazine and served in that capacity until his death.
