    1. A.W. Tozer's The Attributes of God has been on my shelf for years. It is probably one of the first Tozer books I ever bought. However, it has remained unread for years. Even after discovering Knowledge of the Holy, a book that I loved, loved, loved. The first few attempts, for better or worse, I found a bit intimidating. The timing just wasn't right. But it was right this time. It was JUST RIGHT. The Attributes of God turned out to be an amazing--absolutely amazing--read for me. Tozer's Attribut [...]

    2. This collection could have been written today instead of in the 1950's. Tozer's words are timeless and are needed by today's Christians. I'm glad I took the time to read this book.

    3. Tozer addresses ten attributes of God: infinitude, immensity, goodness, justice, mercy, grace, omnipresence, immanence, holiness, and perfection. This book spoke strongly to me; it is so easy to create God in our own image and limit Him because we as creatures cannot really fathom Him. Tozer's language is straightforward, and sets forth a higher view of God. I need to reread this book every so often to recalibrate. As Tozer says, "If I have a low concept of God, my religion can only be a cheap, [...]

    5. A.W. Tozer is one of the great Christian minds of the 20th century. His works are always jam-packed with pearls of wisdom.In this book, Tozer tackles ten attributes of God: infinitude, immensity, goodness, justice, mercy, grace, omnipresence, immanence, holiness, and perfection. As always, his presentation is thoughtful, his words are simple, and his subject deep.Parts of the book made me rethink my own assumptions. The topic of justice was the most profound for me:“We say sometimes, ‘The ju [...]

    6. The focus is on ten attributes of God. Written from the heart of a man hard after God. Tozer is always a good choice.

    7. “When we come to God our need determines which of God’s attributes we’ll celebrate.”As always, Tozer presents us with a magnificent vision of God, and guides us to worship Him and live our lives in light of these attributes. The book is a collection of sermons and includes a helpful study guide (not written by Tozer). After discussing each attribute, the Study Guide suggests asking two questions: How does my understanding of this particular attribute have implications for my relationship [...]

    8. This book is a concise summary of the theology of God's identity. While this book is dated at times (written in the 1950s) and reflects a bit of the fundamentalist disgust for science and scientists, moving past these artifacts of his time allowed me to gain some interesting and profound insights about God and our perceptions of him.

    9. A wonderful book! It helps in giving the right view of the great God of heaven. So many these days have formulated a god of their own imaginations and it's important that we don't allow these imaginations, whether those of others or even ourselves, to twist our understanding of what the real attributes of God are. This book is written in a very understandable, yet uncompromising way.

    10. i liked the last Section a lot on holiness. That god is soooo holy and we forget that and make him familiar and our buddy. But he is God

    11. One thing you can be certain of with A. W. Tozer, he is honest and says it exactly as he sees it. This is a book that is meant to draw the reader into a deeper understanding of God. It does it very well. Tozer's desire to walk closely with the Savior and draw others to Him is evident in everything that he writes. This book does not disappoint.

    12. This books holds a lot of information, and may take weeks or months to really get through and retain. But if you want to know the God of the Bible, Tozer writes an excellent, readable account.

    13. My rating is 3.5/5. I started this book with great expectations, considering that Tozer's work is usually excellent. But I have to admit I was disappointed with some areas of this one. At times he is overly repetitive. A number of statements he makes are very sloppy, while others are downright concerning. There is a level of disorganization as he seems to meander around different attributes, stories, and philosophical commentaries. I gather that is probably because the book is based on a collect [...]

    14. I actually forgot how good this book is. If you are a fan of plain spoken folk, but you can't abide the smugness of modern theologians, then you will probably love this book. Tozer walks the reader through the attributes (God's goodness, kindness, justice, omnipotence etc. ) and casually almost whimsically illustrates how each fits within the other without violating any of their first principles, or cancelling out the other. More importantly, Tozer demonstrates how we seamlessly fold these into [...]

    15. "The Attributes of God, Volume 1" is a sermon series/Bible study on the attributes of God. Tozer quoted from sources that used old English, which sometimes slowed the reading a little for me, but the main text was very easy to read and understand. A Bible study was included at the back of the book for those desiring to use this book as a group Bible study. The content is fully relevant to today's world.Tozer looked to Scripture to answer "What is God like?" and he came to balanced, Bible-based c [...]

    16. This is one of those books I could re-read over and over without ever getting bored. Tozer’s style in this work is very informal, enjoyable, and blunt. If you’re looking for a work that simply addresses the attributes of God from an intellectual or theological level, you won’t enjoy this book. There are great Systematic Theologies for that. This work is theologically sound while dealing with mind-bending attributes of God in a present and applicable way. I would almost describe the work as [...]

    17. Timeless devotional for all Christians - those who are new believers and those who are going deeper.23 Chapters each on an attribute of God, short enough but deep enough to make a great daily thought.Each chapter begins with a prayer, clearly discusses a divine aspect--from God's infintiy to God's love--and relates that aspect to todays's world, while pointing always to God's wonder and grace.Tozer asserts that the cause of many of our modern spiritual woes is the loss in today's church of a lof [...]

    18. A good in-depth look at ten of God's attributes. But this isn't just a theoretical treatise. Tozer carefully delves into what our response to God's attributes ought to be, and the standard he proclaims will leave most of us feeling how shallow our understanding of God really is. One of the things that grabbed my attention was Tozer's assertion that God possesses every one of his attributes to infinity. He is never more of one attribute than another. Our perceived need for one of his attributes m [...]

    19. I might have given this book a better rating but for the fact that it was rather clichéd. The attributes the author attributes to God are not very adequately explained. When describing God's attributes, one should either site voluminous evidence, site expert testimony, or state it as a matter of tradition. Evidence would include several citations of scripture, except where one verse merely quotes another verse. Expert testimony would include God himself (including Jesus). Many sermons I've hear [...]

    20. One of those books that transforms your life. I have been a believer for many years, and I thought I knew what God was like. I learned many new and wonderful things about God's character, which have enriched my life. I was surprised that I had ideas that were only half-baked, at best. Tozer is accessible, but I found I needed to read through each chapter several times. The study guide in the back has been extremely helpful. I finally decided to use this book for a discussion group, and we have h [...]

    21. After reading this book, A.W. Tozer became the type of preacher I wanted to hear sermons from. What a great man of God he is! We need such men in this generation to preach the character of God in such bold, deep, truthful, biblically-strong and convicting way! In this book, Tozer expounds the meaning of at least ten well known attributes of God. God wound't be God unless He represents such attributes in an infinite way! Praise God for this book. I've learned and realized more who our God is. Kno [...]

    22. I found the content of this book to be overly emotive, opinionated, and rambling. Too often, Tozer relies on his own paraphrases of scripture rather than the text directly, which raises suspicion for me--is he interested in gleaning objective truth from it or merely using it to back up his feelings? It might do something for right brained types, but if like me you want to hang your theological hat on something more reliable than one man's feelings, a carefully constructed work of systematic theo [...]

    23. At first I felt like this would probably not be as bad if this was a sermon. Then I read in the description that it was a collection of sermons. That made more sense. However, he speaks in such a self righteous way that I didn't feel like we were both in the same state and trying to improve. I felt he was worshiping in the street to show how much he loved God and he then had already received his glory. Anyway, in the end he did not help me want to do better or live better. I did at least think a [...]

    24. Theology meets devotional meets pastoral meets prophetic. Listened to the audiobook. Want to get the physical. Passionate, profound with a squeeze of abandonment makes it so readable/listenable. He dives into application and at times he knocks the odd vase over on the way. It's theological but it's not a book on theology. It's historically aware but it's not a history book. Tozer serves up a unique and intriguing feast of reflections. He calls us not to orthodoxy but to the God of orthodoxy, and [...]

    25. Tozer discusses 10 attributes of God, each of them taking half an hour in the audio version. Overall, Tozer offers a critique of our friendly, down to earth view of God. He reminds us of how big and holy God is, and how important implications follow. One particularly interesting point was about how God is everywhere, and therefore never far from us. But, when he feels far, it's because of our dissimilarity from Him. If our sin originally separates us from God, our continuing in sin can make us f [...]

    26. This was an enjoyable audio book. I like listening to books in this format. Each of the 10 chapters was like a sermon teaching on the different attributes of God. The general disclaimer—I can't guarantee 100% biblical orthodoxy from from one reading of any book. This seemed extremely solid to me, though. There is lots to think about. This reminded me that my view of God is always, always too small.

    27. This bookI will have to re-read this book before the end of the year. I finished it, and I feel like my soul was not ready for all of it. There's so much revelation in this book that I need to give focused attention to. With everything in me, I know I have been giving myself to the wrong pursuits. The ideas and realities put forth thin this book are so high and lofty (in the best sense). Why am I wasting my time with pebbles when the pearl of great price is at hand?

    28. Tozer's 'Pursuit of God' really resounded with me when I read it, and I had similar expectations for this work. But I think that Tozer isn't best at laying out a systematic theology, but more of a practical theology. When he tries to systematize a bit, he gets repetitive and his thinking gets a little bit sloppy (IMHO). Nothing against Tozer at all, I just feel like he's out of his best zone with this book.
