The Radical Cross by A.W. Tozer

I have read a couple of books from Tozer. I love how he talks about God. His view of God is so big and majestic and awesome.

This book was given to me as a gift cause I put it on my amazon wishlist, but I wish I had done a tad more research on the book prior to adding it to a list. I'm not a big fan of books put together after the author passes away. I feel like when the editor combines the chapters he is in part adding to the messages written by the original author.

This book is full of short messages by Tozer. I really didn't get into the book cause the book was full of short, choppy chapters. I have nothing really bad to say about Tozer's message. I sincerely believe His God is much bigger and that mine needs to be bigger like His.

The only crticism I have is Tozer's sense of notsalgia. He implies the faith of yesterday was stronger than today and theat modern Christians are weak and lazy. There may be some truth to that but I think it is a little too simple to say yesterday is better than today. It doesn't get us any where.

Those are my two cents, nothing great but I hope you understand what I mean.
