The book: The Knowledge of the Holy

Written by: Aiden Wilson Tozer, 1961.

From the back:

The church has surrendered her once lofty concpet of God and has substituted for it one so low, so ignoble, as to be utterly unworthy of thinking, worshipping men. With our loss of a sense of majesty has come the further loss of religious awe and sense of the divine presence. We have lost our spirit of worship and our ability to withdraw inwardly to meet God in adoring silence.

Dr Tozer helps us in this book on the character of God to rediscover His majesty in a way that will deeply affect our day-to-day living.
