Before I get into my review there are some disclaimers: 1. Aiden Wilson Tozer was a pastor in the Christian and Missionary Alliance, a Charismatic Denomination. I am neither promoting or detracting charismatic denominations; rather I am trying to be up front and honest with you. 2. I purchased this Bible at my own expense and this may be reflected in my review. “The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.” —A. W. Tozer A little about Tozer A “twentieth-century prophet” they called him even in his lifetime. For 31 years A. W. Tozer was pastor of Southside Alliance Church in Chicago, where his reputation as a man of God was citywide. Concurrently he became editor of Alliance Life, a responsibility he fulfilled until his death in 1963. His greatest legacy to the Christian world has been more than 40 books. Hendrickson has released two versions of this excellent Bible, a KJV Titled the AW Tozer Bible and an NIV titled the Pursuit of God Bible. The only difference I was able to find between the two is the translation and title. I suspect the differing title for the KJV is due to the propensity of charismatics to use the King James.

Daily reading Bibles are a great way to read the Bible through in a year. They have the Bible arranged for you, separated by day, so you can just pick it up and read the days’ reading without having to put any thought into the reading plan itself. There are many choices. The hard part is knowing which one would work for you. There are several choices for the plan in daily reading Bibles. You can read the Bible in Biblical order, chronologically, have a morning and evening reading, or read portions from various books (Law, Prophets, Psalms/Proverbs, Gospels,...Read More

The A. W. Tozer Bible from Hendrickson Publishers is a study/devotional Bible with writings from one of the 20th century’s most beloved Christian authors. A. W. Tozer was a Pastor, Preacher, Teacher, and Student who wrote many books in his 40-year ministry. This Bible includes over 500 selections from his writings. Here’s a look at some of the key features: Brief biography of A. W. Tozer Epistle Dedicatory (dedication to King James) Over 500 Tozer selections King James Version Book introductions Textual Headings Words of Christ in red Outer side-column references 145 page Concordance 8 pages of Maps 9.50 x 6.25″ x 1.75″ Text The font looks to be a more modern digital font. I’m not sure of the font’s size, but it looks close to 9-point. It has extra leading between the lines, giving plenty of room to underline. There are no footnotes indicators in the text itself. This makes the text very clean and readable. One of my favorite features is the text layout. Poetry is set in verse format which is offset from the regular text. I like the way this looks. It helps not only to identify the genre of Scripture, but also makes the text more readable. The reference of the first verse that appears on the page is printed at the top of each page. Paragraph markers continue throughout the New Testament. Headings...Read More
