How can I know God's will for me, personally? It's a question that haunts us all at times--maybe when we're looking for the right job, thinking about moving to a new city, or deciding whether or not to get married. At every stage we have difficult decisions to make, and we long for God's direction and his warm reassurance that we're heading the right way. A Cloud by Day, a Fire by Night captures Tozer's teaching on the will of God taken from sermons he preached just before he left his successful church in Chicago. Tozer was no stranger to facing difficult decisions, and his wisdom and biblical insight will help guide you in decisions of your own. The title comes from the story of God leading his people out of Egypt into the promised land. In the same way, let this book help reveal where he is leading and reassure you that he will be by your side every step of the way.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Chosen Books and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

This is the first time I’ve heard of this author, and this is another non-fiction read. I’ve been reading a lot more of them lately, and some I enjoy. Others, not so much. This one falls in the middle of those feelings. The author uses sermons to help to bring this book together, and points a lot of important factors from throughout the Bible in this book.

This book focuses on what it’s like living a daily battle who’s, what’s and why’s, and straying from God’s will. Tozer helps us to see that we need to grasp onto what God has in store for us, and hold on and not stray away. In today’s world, that’s all to often easy to do. Too much second guessing and not enough of the knees hitting the floor, so to speak.

This is a book that would be great for a Bible study among churches, or just for someone who finds they have more questions about their life’s direction than they do answers. While not my favorite, I can still recommend this book with 3.5 stars, and will be looking out for more work from this author!

About A.W. Tozer

A. W. TOZER (1897-1963) began his lifelong pursuit of God after hearing a street preacher in Akron, Ohio, at the age of seventeen. The self-taught theologian committed his life to the ministry of God’s Word as a pastor, teacher, and writer. For his flowing prose, Spirit-filled words, and deep conviction, many have called him a modern-day prophet. He is the author of the beloved classic The Pursuit of God and dozens of other works.
