like Burpo's "Heaven Is For Real" or Sabom's "Light & Death," don't bother with Tozer. Tozer's overriding theme in everything that he wrote was that a relationship with the divine is not about public show, heavenly reward, fear of damnation, or any other shallow thing that drives most people into a meaningless little building for a meaningless little sermon for an hour a week; it is about a deep down desire for the divine because the divine is good, and the person who desires the divine desires good and responds to the call of goodness, the call of the divine, out of that seeking for goodness. In short, Tozer tells Christianity like it really is.

I really appreciate the seriousness and straightforward approach tozer takes in his writing. My biggest take away is that in prayer any selfishness must be removed in order for prayer to be effective. for example a business man shouldn't pray for his business to do well in order that he can help share the gospel at work. a selfless prayer is God use me, or don't, forget me and use whatever means You will that Your will be done... whoever and however God decides for His will to be done is the correct posture I should take when praying. a desire to be included in God's plan should be replaced with a desire for God's will to happen regardless of my personal involvement. My second take away is, I should make sure that in every opportunity, God is given credit and glory, and not pass off the credit to any man initiated effort.
