Hi all,I have been reading and listening to lots of Tozer sermons of late and I wondered if anybody had a list of his reading recomendations?I am fascinated by his Love and devotion to Christ, and interested in the authors and literature that led him to such a close walk with our Lord.BlessingsBryn
If you could ask him, I think he would say: the Bible.
Generally speaking, Tozer enjoyed reading Shakespeare and the medieval mystics if that's any help :-) He also loved reading any and every translation of the Bible. Tozer really read anything and everything. He said if you aren't going to read, get out of the ministry.
In his written works, 2 books I've noticed pop-up frequently are The Cloud of Unknowing by anonymous and The Spiritual Guide by Michael de Molinos. Read carefully, medevil mystics demonstrate extreme self-denial and thirst for intimacy, but often couple it with not the soundest theology. If you're a mature meat-eater, you'll be alright. If a litle younger in faith, read with an older believer. But yea, Shakespeare too, on his knees (what devotion to God).
