Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Although never considered to be a popular speaker nor prolific writer, A. W. Tozer's audiences did appreciate what he had to say, and he was probably the most widely read Christian writer of his time. Keys to the Deeper Life contains six of his best-known essays and editorials. In them he rigorously examines many of the failings and foibles of his day. Although most were written more than three decades ago, the insights they offer are as fresh and thought-provoking as the day they were published. Robert Walker, the editor of Christian Life, and a long-time associate of Tozer, has written an Introduction to the book that delightfully captures Tozer's irascible genius. Keys to the Deeper Life also contains the account of an exclusive interview with A. W. Tozer shortly before his death.

About the Author

The late Dr. A. W. Tozer was well known in evangelical circles both for his long and fruitful editorship of the Alliance Witness as well as his pastorate of one of the largest Alliance churches in the Chicago area. He came to be known as the Prophet of Today because of his penetrating books on the deeper spiritual life.

"I believe we are under positive spiritual obligation to pray effectively till the present veil is torn away and the face of God is seen again by believing men," Tozer writes.
There is an irony that A.W. Tozer is more prolific and widely-read today than when he was alive. How I wish I could sit at his elbow and ask him about today's events, the future of the church, the coming King...In some ways, he answers those questions in "Keys to the Deeper Life."
Smith Wigglesworth once referred to the gifts of salvation, baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the deeper life as "Good, better, best." I think Tozer would agree.
Never afraid to speak truth, the first chapter sets the tone for the enitre book: "Leaning into the wind". Just like him. Eschewing the hypocritical, the false glory found in man's praise, and the shallow life, Tozer puts the trumpet to his lips to issue a clear call of the Spirit, to engage God at a deeper level. He urges believers to "1.)surrender, 2.)ask, 3.) obey, and 4.)believe in order to recieve the fullness of God, the Holy Spirit.
In the chapter, "Touching Heaven in Prayer", Tozer writes:
"What then shall we do?
We must deny self, take up the cross and count ourselves expendable.
We must cease to exercise the world's judgements and try to think God's thoughts after Him.
We must rekon ourselves dead to gain and glory and allow ourselves to become inextricably invloved with the cross of Christ and the high honor of God."
Putting God first and ourselves dead last.
What a concept.
Sounds like Christ.

A.W Tozer has always written in a rare style. I have read his Pursuit of Man & Pursuit of God; both were enlightening materials. Keys To The Deeper Life, however, is the sounding of the voice of a prophet. It is indeed an apocalypse of spiritual truths. A.W Tozer looked deeply into the problem facing the church and delivered an oratory on the root-cause. He exposed many blemishes the Church institution of the day would rather not discuss. This book is reminiscent of the Lord's "Sermon on the Mount" - in tone, very direct; and in purpose, transparently corrective. A.W Tozer challenged the action and motivation of evangelicals. In every paragraph, A.W Tozer served a bi-nutritional diet of flame and water. With his characteristic earnestness he exposed the hypocrisy of contemporary Christianity with an unspoken plea for reform, yet understanding that "reform" is not a natural tendency of established religion, he showed the futility of going about Church as it then (and currently) exists.

If the book reads like the Bible, it is because the writer was merely expressing the spirit of the bible writers in a modern tongue. He saw something the average Christian is incapable of discerning; something effectively tearing down the fabric of the church, yet deceptive enough to be imperceptible. He then went about diagnosing, and prescribing remedies with the style and language of the true luminary that he has proven to be.

Keys to the Deeper Life does not come across as the average Sunday afternoon read. The very title of the book suggests it is tailored to the taste of keen bibliophiles, or folks who desperately seek for deep spiritual truths, and are patient enough to surf through deliberately enhanced prose in order to embrace a revelation.

W Tozer, without exception is one of the finest bible expositors of the early 1900's. He saw what many earnest christians of every generation saw, that is that most christians fail to experience God in the fullest sense. Like many of the classic writers of his day, he endeavors to lead the christian into a deeper relationship with God. This book is one of his finest.

Salvation is a free gift, but if one wants to walk with God, it will cost them much more than most are willing to give up. This book helps one find there place in that walk.

I was truly amazed at the spiritual insight that Tozer displayed in his writing. I don't think he suffered fools gladly but his vision of an extremely erroneous present day church was absolutely profound. He is a Christian author who certainly made me stand back in awe at the man's God given insight into how heretical the present church of our Lord Jesus Christ has apostasised from that which was established in the book of Acts. Thank God for men like Tozer who can shock us out of our Evangelical stupor but not submerge us into the present heresy in the Charismatic/Pentecostal hype and nonsense. I would thoroughly recommend this book for anyone who is emerging from that stupor into the light and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Fantastic book. All of Tozer's books are great...but this one added a depth to living in the Holy Spirit daily which all Christians need to achieve. This book was enlightening and inspiring. If you don't read anything else by Tozer, please read this.

Tozer states plainly that many Christians fear the Holy Spirit; therefore the joy and excitement that the Bible speaks of seems so far away. Not a radical, but a plain spoken reason why many Christians feel like we are losing the battle. Once you start you can't hardly put it down. A truly life changing book
