In the Old Testament, God decried the fact that his people were perishing for lack of knowledge about him. The same seems to be occurring today. There is sharing, suggesting, plenty of storytelling, and lots of preaching to felt needs in modern pulpits. But the authoritative, expositional opening of the word of God is becoming scarcer all the time. Jesus told Peter, "Feed my sheep" (John 21:17).

This little audiobook is hard to swallow. In it, A. W. Tozer teaches plainly who the Spirit is and why we should desire him but why few of us do. He instructs us in how to be filled with the Spirit but first poses this question: Do you really want to be filled?

Any additional comments?

This teaching about the Holy Spirit is a very good beginner level starting place. Dr. Tozer does a very good job and keeping to the facts and being, in his Tozer way, very straightforward. When you get to the end you have no wonder about where he stood in the teaching and what scripture it stood on.

“Jesus - the Jesus we might discover if we really looked,” explains Wright, “is larger, more disturbing, more urgent than we had ever imagined. We have successfully managed to hide behind other questions and to avoid the huge, world-shaking challenge of Jesus’s central claim and achievement. It is we, the churches, who have been the real reductionists. We have reduced the kingdom of God to private piety; the victory of the cross to comfort for the conscience; Easter itself to a happy, escapist ending after a sad, dark tale. Piety, conscience, and ultimate happiness are important...."
