This beloved book, a modern classic of Christian testimony and devotion, addresses these and other vital questions, showing us how we can rejuvenate our prayer life, meditate more reverently, understand God more deeply, and experience God's presence in our daily lives.

is to those for whom the divine has become a playground of church socials, sing-a-longs and comforting, warm and fuzzy little sermons about Ruth and Naomi, for those who have long left behind the deeper and harder seekings after goodness, truth and justice in its purest and most challenging form. Tozer's message is one that always needs to be heard and heeded.
Great read, Listen. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to see a glimpse of God, who wants to know God better and who wants to understand the God we serve and worship.
Listening to this as I did my early morning walk through the neighborhood gave such an awesome appreciation to such a Mighty and Exalted God that watches over us daily.
God, who is the central and only character of this book.
No, this was my first
It made me awestruck at the thoughts of how great God is.
First of all this is a 5 star BOOK - a classic that belongs on every Christian's bookshelve.
The 1 star rating is for the narrator. I can't even listen to him. His voice and delivery are the
audio book equivalent of figernails on a blackboard. He is TONE DEAF to the subject matter of
book he is reading. His strident, frenetic reading is just plain annoying, to the point that, as I
said, I cannot even listen to it.
The narrator of this wonderful book made it impossible for me to listen to more than 3 chapters. His over-the-top reading became so irritating that I could not concentrate on the deep insightful message at all. I'll rather buy the book and read it / enjoy it.
Simple, clear, profound insight, but still deep enough you will want no distractions while listening to it. I listen to it, read the kindle version then re-listened to it. There is so much here and I rarely re-read anything. There is a majesty and understanding of God that has been lost by the current Christian today and needs to be recaptured.
Yes: I will probably listen to this on a regular basis.
This book pricks my heart with deep reverence every time I hear/read it.
The Knowledge of the Holy is a book that Christians in our modern world desperately need to read/hear. Tozer writes in this book about the inexplicably disastrous effects of having a Church that does not study who God is through His revealed attributes manifested to us in His Word. And we need just to look around in the churches today to see the apathy and deadness all around us caused by our irreverent or "low" (as Tozer put it) view of God. God says that He opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble: this book helped reveal the spirit of humility to me because it purely exalts God high as He truly is the Most Hight, above all else.
The Principles are timeless
If a book is fat it is usually fluff, every sentance is packed with wisdom.
