Man the Dwelling Place of God by A.W. Tozer is about what it means to have Christ living in you, "Behold I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me'."  At the hidden center of man's being is the dwelling place of the Triune God.  It is such a private, intimate place that no on Man the Dwelling Place of God by A.W. Tozer is about what it means to have Christ living in you, "Behold I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me'."  At the hidden center of man's being is the dwelling place of the Triune God.  It is such a private, intimate place that no one can intrude but Christ, and even He will enter only through an invitation of faith.  Once the Spirit enters the deep-in core of the believer's heart and establishes residence there, man becomes a true child of God.  But baptism, confirmation, receiving the sacraments, church membership, etc., mean nothing unless God has truly inhabited the soul. In this book entitled, Man: The Dwelling Place of God, Tozer reveals what it truly means to have Christ within us. Leaving your old life behind, understanding the Bible, making moral choices, loving God for Himself, christian Fellowship, and much more! "Behold I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."' Revelation 3:20

    An extraordinary collection of (mostly) short essays most of which originally appeared in The Alliance Witness of which he was the editor in the 1905s. Presumably only of interest to Christians, and even then to those seeking a closer walk with God. Best read one chapter at a time--they all stand alone--to allow the reader to absorb and reflecton Tozer's message. Many lend themselves to personal mediation. Can be life changing. A very good read.

    I like A. W. Tozer quite a bit. There are times when I think he's right on the money, and times that I have some problems with what he has to say. I can't decide why I disagree. He definitely has a more conservative tone, but that's not all of the problem. Even when I find myself disagreeing strongly with what he has to say, I find myself listening and trying to work through the differences in my head, rather than dismissing his ideas. That's a hard combo for me to find. His take on modern Chris I like A. W. Tozer quite a bit.

That's a hard combo for me to find. His take on modern Christianity, though somewhat dated because he wrote 1920-1963, I think is nothing short of brilliant. One of his ever present themes is of really following Jesus, while a good chunk of Christianity only pays that effort lip service and goes running after the latest ideas. I've read other books by Tozer, I'll read more.

    "Christianity today is man-centered, not God-centered." (No doubt!) "The old cross is a symbol of death. It stands for the abrupt, violent end of a human being." "The whole world has been booby-trapped by the devil, and the deadliest trap of all is the religious one." One of the things I appreciate most about Tozer is that he was highly critical of the modern evangelical church and yet was himself a modern evangelical. I think he saw the many ways that the church was selling out to partisan politic "Christianity today is man-centered, not God-centered." (No doubt!) "The old cross is a symbol of death. It stands for the abrupt, violent end of a human being." "The whole world has been booby-trapped by the devil, and the deadliest trap of all is the religious one." One of the things I appreciate most about Tozer is that he was highly critical of the modern evangelical church and yet was himself a modern evangelical. I think he saw the many ways that the church was selling out to partisan politics and worldly concerns (e.g. this prosperity gospel nonsense) and departing from the actual texts of the Gospel. I like him very much when he criticizes the church (and the Western world) and talks about God, less so when he criticizes the world (almost to the point where he seems a smidge isolationist; I don't recall very much in Tozer about the great commission) and even less so when he seems to suggest that wrestling with faith or trying to make intellect part your belief is, in fact, a form of unbelief. Some of this might be the culture and time and social climate he was writing in. That being said, I highlighted 70 different passages of this little book. You're going along and then BAM, Tozer lays a brilliant insight out and you're like, 'Daggone. That dude's deep.'

    This is such a challenging book! Makes me realise there is still a lot of sanctification needed in my life. Tozer's messages are brief, very direct and timeless. This is such a challenging book!

    It would be easy to pass by Tozer’s works because many of them were written over 50 years ago and sometimes the language can be old fashioned- but may I say something? From just a few pages in I forgot about any of that! I was so challenged, blessed and encouraged through this book. A.W. Tozer writes with the authority of a prophet of God.

From just a few pages in I forgot about any of that! I was so challenged, blessed and encouraged through this book. A.W. Tozer writes with the authority of a prophet of God. There’s a powerful message in this little book. But it leaves the reader with a choice: Listen and apply, and experience the blessing of God’s presence, or ignore the message and go on as before, doing life one’s own way. How incredible it is that Almighty God chooses to make people like you and I His dwelling place; to live and walk and talk with us. God wants to reveal His power to us in personal ways. However, Tozer writes, we can’t just live whatever way we want to and then ask the Lord to bless our lives with His presence. We need to allow God to be the one in charge and cease trying to control God. God is not at our beck and call, He is not a genie in a bottle waiting to grant our wishes when we rub the bottle the right way, He is Lord of all. Tozer says, it’s time for us to take God’s Word more seriously, as God’s Word tells us clearly how to live, and how He longs to bless us. As with all Tozer’s books, each of the 39 short chapters gives much food for thought (and further study if are so inclined.) It’s a challenging read: one that requires action - application of the truths in these short chapters will be something that you will want to ponder throughout the book. Jill 💜

    This has to be one of the most delightful Tozer books I have read. It has 39 short chapters on unrelated topics so one can read for a long or short time, stop, and come back to it without interruption. This makes a great format for those vacation or get-a-way times when you want to read for encouragement at your own leisure. And the reader won’t be disappointed in finding the familiar gems dropped behind from a long walk with Tozer.

And the reader won’t be disappointed in finding the familiar gems dropped behind from a long walk with Tozer. In fact, Tozer writes, “The best writer is one that goes with us through the world of ideas like a friendly guide who walks beside us through the forest pointing out to us a hundred natural wonders we had not noticed before. So we learn from him to see for ourselves and soon we have no need for our guide. If he has done his work well we can go on alone and miss little as we go.” Read from over 600 other books reviews on my web site

    A thoughtful and insightful vision of a Christian life. The author carefully and artfully explains the importance of the interior life of Christians. Although the author remains within the traditional Christian evangelical belief system I was pleased by his insight and eloquence about the true spiritual character we are to become vessels for!

    Tozer was able to point out how Christianity as we know today is not the Christianity that Jesus had in mind when he went here on earth. Throughout the years, we have made Christianity man-centered and have altered some fundamental truths in order to please the crowd and make Christianity more acceptable and easier to swallow. Christianity was never meant to be comfortable; on the contrary, Jesus wanted to shake everyone's core by challenging the accepted truths and practices during His time.

This book made me think and reflect upon what I hold true myself and how I react to the faith that I possess. Tozer doesn't sugarcoat, he rubs the hard facts in your face, never hesitating to proclaim how Christianity SHOULD be in light of God's word.

    While I review many contemporary books on Christian growth, I decided to read some older ones this year. This book by Tozer came out in 1966. The essays are from various talks and writings. He pulled no punches in expressing his opinion on the state of Christianity. He drew attention to an inadequate view of sin. He noted that the Bible might be hard to understand but that was because it was not meant for everyone. He called complacency the scandal of Christianity.

The essays are from various talks and writings. He pulled no punches in expressing his opinion on the state of Christianity. He drew attention to an inadequate view of sin. He noted that the Bible might be hard to understand but that was because it was not meant for everyone. He called complacency the scandal of Christianity. He asked that we quit negotiating with evil. He called us to love God with our entire being, noting there was no place for a secondary love. He warned of self-deception. He called us to always be contrite. He shared how he evaluated new teaching. Perhaps his most disturbing essay for me was on prayer. He was not happy with the teaching that God answered every prayer, even if sometimes with a no. God is under no obligation to honor carnal prayers, he wrote. When we pray, we must keep in mind two requirements: praying in the will of God and living a life pleasing to God. Tozer would certainly give some Christians today a wake up call. “The effort to think well with an empty head is sure to be largely wasted. There is nothing like a good hard fact to correct our carefully constructed theories.” (Loc 1823/2218) He bemoaned the Christians of his day who did not apply themselves to learning. “To think without a proper amount of good reading is to limit our thinking to our own tiny plot of ground. The crop cannot be large.” (Loc 1832/2218) Reading this book revealed how books on Christian living have changed over the last half decade. Tozer was not afraid to offend his readers if it meant preserving the purity of the gospel and the importance of holy living. Read it and be prodded to think again about your spiritual life and your relationship to the world.

    Great book with edifying words of wisdom on the Christian life. My highlights show how much I gained from this book some of which include: the folly of stripping the Gospel of its message and truth in order to be seeker-friendly; the lonely life of the Christian; the importance of will in obeying God, and the perfect sovereignty of God in salvation. This is one that deserves a place on the bookshelf because it contains great gems. A good and helpful one from Tozer!

    Great book! I read Tozer's PURSUIT OF GOD and am currently reading Tozer's daily devotional collection. Without a doubt I have found Tozer to be the most familiar author with the knowledge of and personal relational knowledge of God's love for man and of God's attributes. I highly recommend this book, and any other book by Tozer to anyone truly seeking a closer relationship with Our Lord. Great book!

    Excellent! I used this as a quiet time book. There was something every day to ponder and pray over. Tozer is encouraging, insightful and convicting to live the best Christian life possible by continually handing over the reins to Christ. I will be reading through it again and again.

    Practical Advise for the Serious Christian. If you really mean business with Jesus. Mr Tozer gives you insight to what it means to have a relationship with God and the pits and snares of Satan keeping us on our toes as well as preparing us to inhabit Christ. One to read again and again. 😊

    A wonderful and true book to read. It’s amazing how Tozer wrote this book so many years ago and it is relevant for today. I was a little disappointing at the ending because I thought the author would have tied all the chapters into the title of the book (Man the dwelling place of God). What I did learn though is that my faith should be active.

    Misleading title I expected a diferent book when I purchased it... I thought it would be entirely focused on what it means for us that God dwells in us and not a collection of short pieces on a wide variety of subjects. That said, the book is awesome! (as everything Tozer's). It is challenging and applicable to our current world (even if written a century ago) Misleading title I expected a diferent book when I purchased it...

    This is a fantastic book that requires the reader to carefully read and meditate on the message. Recommended to me by an old college professor, this book makes you rethink our relationship with God and the mystery behind it. Simple and short, I highly recommend this book.

    Tozer truly was a living prophet who gave us message from spirit world. A lot of introspection has been done throughout this book and I use to want tozer to be alive so I could meet him but reading his book was like having him preach to me and I understood it all 🙏🏼

    I really love Tozer's writing. He is one my all time favourite authors. He writes with courage, and provides profound commentary about what is happening today, making his writings highly relevent and accurate. Normally I wouldn't like books compiled of many small independent and distinct chapters but nearly every chapter contains a gem and mostly he warns us to be Christians who are awake, not asleep, in this world.
