Book Review - The Fire of God's Presence by A. W. Tozer


What Would It Be Like to Encounter God Face-to-Face?

Have you ever truly experienced God's presence? If not, what do you think is getting in the way?

When Moses met God at the burning bush, it changed his life and his perception of who God is. In that burning-bush moment, he began to understand and appreciate the sacredness of worship. Proper worship has to fit the one we are worshiping, so if we are worshiping God, we must do it on His terms. This means having a spirit of reverence and holiness--like Moses taking off his shoes and kneeling before Him.

The bush's fire did not frighten Moses, but rather it poured the essence of sacredness into his life. It gave him an experience of God's presence he had never had before. Let this book teach you how, like Moses, to encounter God afresh.


A.W. Tozer (1897-1963) was a self-taught theologian, pastor, and writer whose powerful words continue to grip the intellect and stir the soul of today's believer. He authored more than 40 books. The Pursuit of God and The Knowledge of the Holy are considered modern devotional classics. Get Tozer information and quotes at

Reverend James L. Snyder is recognized as an authority on A.W. Tozer. His first book, In Pursuit of God: The Life of A.W. Tozer, won the Reader's Choice Award in 1992 from Christianity Today. James and his wife live in Ocala, Florida.


In my opinion, you just can't get better than A. W. Tozer for really getting into what the Bible means and how it applies to our life in all areas. He never wavers from the truth and, I personally, find his books so interesting and inspiring.

This book is all about the presence of God in our lives. From the Old Testament to the New, this book takes us on a journey, showing us how the Lord has always been with us and always will.  He never changes so what the Bible says about Him holds the same today. 

Using the burning bush as his focus, Mr. Tozer shares how the Lord is our hiding place, our sheltering place. He blesses us and transforms us as we walk with Him. This book is about growing closer to God by knowing Him in a profound and deep way. 

As with all Tozer books, I can highly recommend them because they stay true to Scripture and lead us into a deeper relationship with Jesus. I highlighted so much of this book and I'm sure you'll find yourself doing the same.  It's also one of those books I'll read again and again because I gain so much from it each time.  I give this book 5 stars.
