To receive Jesus Christ as Lord is not a passive, soft thing - not a predigested king of religion. It is strong meat! It is such strong meat that God is calling us in this hour to yield everything to Him. We push the living God into a corner, trying to use Him as an escape from hell... But it will not work... We must be concerned with the person and the character of God, not the promises...Faith itself must rest on the character of God. How do you know that you really believe and are not just bookkeeping? Has there been any change in your life, your desires, your instincts? You can claim all of this!Publishers Description
"Faith Beyond Reason," a book by A.W. Tozer, is a compilation of sermons on the book of John. It is within this series of sermons that you will find A.W. Tozer addressing the whole truth that all things are possible with God. Tozer takes us in "Faith Beyond Reason" to a new understanding of our spiritual birth and human conscience and addresses our enlightened spirit, inner knowledge and the resurrection. IT is these truths that sustain us in our Christian walk. Faith Beyond Reason comes to us with insights of faith and Tozer takes an in depth look and what it stands on. In Tozer's typical fashion and style, he explores the things that are beyond or frail human understanding. "Faith Beyond Reason" will leave you with a new and empowering sense of the faith while subtly revealing the power of God in our lives.
The question every Christian must ask as they prepare to walk with God is, do they really believe that the God they worship will move heaven and earth for them if they truly trust in Him? The whole premise of this book is that with God nothing is impossible especially when it comes to His children. We must act with faith and do what is needed.

|A Sack Full of Gold Nuggets Nov 17, 2002|
|In typical Tozer fashion, he cuts to the heart of every issue with Spirit-guided precision! Tozer tells the truth boldly, plainly, and unerringly on target. This little book is a treasury of spiritual insights like:|
"Faith never goes contrary to reason; faith simply ignores reason and rises above it."
"I have been memorizing the Scriptures ever since I was converted, but my faith does not rest on God's promises. My faith rests upon God's character."
or, talking about the importance of emptying oneself:
"The less there is in the kettle, the quicker it begins to boil."
I love Tozer's straight-forwardness and his plain talk about complex matters. He takes the abstract and makes it concrete.
Tozer writes, "It is not enough that I hold an inspired book in my hands. I must have an inspired heart."
Thanks, Lord, for sending Tozer to us and for giving him such an inspired heart.
|Did you ever wonder? Apr 13, 2002|
|Did you ever wonder why so many evangelicals laud A. W. Tozer but lambaste the Christian mystics he so highly regarded? Have you ever tried to practice what Mr. Tozer preached and found yourself at odds with fellow evangelicals? If so, this book is for you.|
It is a collection of essays. In one, entitled "Revelation is Not Enough," Mr. Tozer describes a battle. A battle over truth between evangelical rationalists and evangelical mystics. The rationalists believe that divine truth is reducible to mere words and creeds. If you hold the right opinion on the stated propositions, then you have the truth. If you can recite the creed, you have the truth. The rationalists search the scriptures, thinking that in them they have eternal life, but they will not eat the flesh or drink the blood of Him whom the scriptures bear witness. Mr. Tozer likens them to the pharisees, and notes the pharisees were the Lord's worst enemies. Hard words, but there is much at stake. This rationalism will kill off the truth, Mr. Tozer says, as surely but more subtly as a liberalism that denies the divine source of scripture.
Who is on the other side of this battle? Who are the evangelical mystics? They are the ones who believe, as Mr. Tozer did, that great saints of old, such as Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross, can instruct today's evangelicals on how to worship God in spirit and in truth. Whose hearts resonate with the words of St. Bernard of Clairvaux:
"We taste Thee, O Thou Living Bread
and long to feast upon Thee still
We drink of Thee the Fountain Head
and thirst our souls from Thee to fill"
