Review: Tozer on the Almight God: A 366-Day Devotional compiled by Ron Eggert

Synopsis: These excerpts from A.W. Tozer's prolific pen reflect Tozer's hunger for God. There are 366 daily devotions encouraging the reader to trust, obey and especially worship our almighty God. Scripture references and prayers have been added to each passage. Reference codes represent the name of the book and the page from which the quote was taken. (from the online description)

Review: After discovering Tozer in early high-school, I continued to read him voraciously. Reading this each morning, along with my Bible, helped me grow, spiritually. Tozer’s insight, instruction, and admonishments for our relationship with God proved singularly encouraging.  

Ron Eggert pulled these devotionals from many of Tozer’s writings, including some of his lesser known workers. Ranging in subject from worship to the Holy Spirit to daily discipleship, Eggert chose a wide selection of Tozer’s instructions. Each devotion starts with a small verse, and ends with a short prayer. There is also a legend at the back of the book that tells you from which of Tozer’s writings the lessons come.
As for Tozer’s writings, he writes with a blend of firm reproof, exhortation, and wisdom. He is both gentle in his encouragement and absolute in his reproach. Tozer’s writings are excellent for self-improvement, profitable for your spiritual life.
I highly recommend this, and any of Tozer’s works.
