The Great Nexus of His-Story as it applies to the lives of the believer.
Be forewarned: After reading this book, you will be held accountable for its contents!
This book is NOT for those who are satisfied with their walk with God. I know this sounds "harsh," and "negative," but one can only say what is on one's heart.
Aiden W. Tozer did not play with God, and his writings enjoin us not to either. To him, the Christian walk was serious business and in no where else was this seriousness made more manifest than on Mount Calvary. There on that Mount, the greatest sacrifice that would ever be made, was made when the Just and Holy One gave His Life a ransom for many, that He might purify a people, zealous of good works, unto Himself.
This book needed no introduction, yet it has two which I feel are a distraction from what Rev. Tozer was trying to show us. This work did not need anyone to speek for it; the Holy Spirit Himself would bear witness. Nevertheless, this prophet of old's voice rang out against the "cross-less" Christianity he saw in his day, and which has gained in popularity in our day. Throught his simple words you can sense the Holy Spirit pleading with the professing Christian not to be satisfied with dead works, ceremony, sacramentalism, and form, but rather to lay one's life down, take up your/my cross, and follow Him daily; that we would partake of the greatness of the spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus by dying to self.
This book, along with The Pursuit of God, make great resources for one's own devotional life. I promise you as a sinner saved/kept by grace, that your walk with the LORD of ALL will not be the same if you take Tozer's words in these two books seriously.
Nothing but the Cross
This is simply a Great book by a Great author about a Great subject. This book is written for Christians that either want to be inspired or be reminded of the Christian Cross to stir up the passions within one's soul.
A concern was that the writing may be stilted, dated or out of style and therefore a drudgery to read but that was the furtherest from the truth. This book will certainly cause you to view the Cross with a passion that you may never have experienced and I write as a minister with over 30 years experience.
There are 7 sections each with 4 or 5 chapters that stand alone and therefore could be read as a devotional that is dedicated to the Radical Cross.
Chapter titles such as: The Cross is a Radical Thing; No One Wants to Die on a Cross; Coddled or Crucified; Dead in Christ and What Easter is About.
I challenge ANY believer to read this book that would like to have a new fire in their faith because it will be impossible not to be affected with this author's writing and understanding.
This is not a theological book, though there is theology, this is an inspirational book.
Read it and be inspired!!!
