That’s the bookshelf immediately overhead in the hutch above my desk. This is where I perpetually have a couple different Bibles, a couple devotionals, and a few books I’m reading. (There’s always a couple more of each on my bedside table too!)
I love peeking at people’s bookshelves and seeing what they read.
Currently there’s Bibles here that range from the NKJ to the CEV to the GWT. There’s one secular title. Three Bible promise books. My Utmost for His Highest. A novel by one of my dearest friends from graduate school. A spiral bound journal. A 1955 copy of A Gift from the Sea. And more.
If you look closely you’ll notice A.W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God. It’s a classic I’ve been reading through this month. If you follow me on Twitter (see button to the right), you know I’ve tweeted several terrific Tozer quotes recently. This one warmed me today:
“He meant us to see Him and live with Him and draw our life from His smile.” (pg 32)
The other day I got an email notice that said, "A.W. Tozer is now following you on Twitter.” That gave me pause. Not because I don’t always tweet stuff that would be worthy of Mr. Tozer’s time, but because I was pretty sure A.W.’s time – all of it on earth – was up few decades ago!
Because it’s a been around awhile, you can usually find used copies of this title cheaply. But if you’d like to experience the short but meaty book for free, head over to ChristianAudio.com and download the audio book of it at no cost this month. Just use the code JUL2010. Tozer’s other titles are also on sale there.
What’s on your shelf? Post a photo and give us the link, or just tell in the comments below.
Thankful for pastors who write.
