This book is really a collection of excerpts from different writers and theologists from 354 to 1945 AD. The pieces are taken from longer essays or books, and while given a heading, really are just a snippit.
It still is/was helpful to me, since I could read a small portion of an author and decide if I want to find the complete work to read. I can get a sampling of the different authors that way.
The print is nice and easy to read. The selections are kept short, maybe between 1 and 3 pages. The introduction is helpful and informative about the man A.W. Tozer himself.
It's a nice book to have on hand for a quick take on stimulating sermons etc. It can be a quick read....just reading quickly through the whole book at once, front to back. Personally, I think it's best used in short, where you read one or two essays on a subject, and then just think about them or study them out more.
The book is divided into topics, where it has a collection of essays on, say, Worship or Prayer. This makes it easy for topical study/discussion.
If I were to compare this book to a meal (silly perhaps), but it wouldn't be the Main Dish (heavy and filling) and it wouldn't be the dessert (light and sweet), but more like a side of mashed potatoes (A nice compliment to a meat, somewhat filling but you'd be hungry if that's all you ate).
I'm sure if you'd like to check it out, the library might have it, but CBD.com does for sure.
