Book Description

Aiden Wilson Tozer was born April 21, 1897, in La Jose (now Newburg), a tiny farming community in the hills of western Pennsylvania. His mother named him for the storekeeper husband of a close friend from girlhood. He did not like his given names, preferring the initials, "A.W." In later life he preferred just Tozer.

In 1919, five years after his conversion, and without formal theological training, Tozer began forty four years of ministry with The Christian and Missionary Alliance. For thirty one of those years he gained prominence as pastor of Southside Alliance Church in Chicago, serving there from 1928 to 1959. He ministered as a pastor, author, editor, Bible conference speaker, denominational leader and, was to many, a reliable spiritual mentor.

Many regarded him, even during his lifetime, as a twentieth - century prophet. Discerning that modern Christianity was sailing through dense fog, he pointed out the rocks on which it could flounder if it continued its course. When other voices were but empty echoes, his proved to be the voice of God. His spiritual intuition enabled him to scent error, name it for what it was and reject it - all in one decisive act. He could tear to pieces in a few short sentences the faulty arguments of others.

Whether writing or speaking, Tozer always ministered to those hungry for God. He majored on the issues of paramount spiritual importance avoiding religious nonsense and trivia. People went away from his ministry with the haunting sense of just having been in the immediate presence of God.

Editorial Reviews

About the Author

A. W. Tozer died in 1963, but his life and spiritual legacy continue to draw many into a deeper knowledge of God. During his lifetime, Tozer pastored several Christian and Missionary Alliance churches. Missions and the deeper life in Christ were his primary focus. He also served as editor of the Alliance Life. Tozer authored more than 40 books, (at least two of which are considered classics: The Pursuit of God and Knowledge of the Holy), a tremendous accomplishment for a man who never received a formal theological education. The presence of God was his classroom, his notebooks and tools consisted of prayer, God's Word, and the writings of early Christians and theologians, the Puritans, and great men of faith. - Publisher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another one of Tozer's Classics February 15, 2011
By ljd
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read several of Tozer's books and he truly is a modern day "prophet" (in the sense of forth-telling, not fore-telling). This Spirit filled book is full of empowering and edifying words...from cover to cover. Almost every "chapter" is only two pages long and provides a concise, to the point, impactful, and convicting discussion of that relative topic. Tozer exemplifies the directive that we (Christians) should spur each other onward and help eachother to live a Spirit lead and Spirit filled life. Profound teachings rich with illumination that could have only come from the Holy Spirit Himself. I would recommend this book (along with every other book I've read by Tozer) to anyone who truly wants to "go on with God" other words, if you are tired of holding hands with the world and truly want to subvert self (that is your sinful nature) and be "more than conquerors", this is a must read. This book will speak to you where you are at and convict you...we are not called to look like this world or live a defeated life...we are called to so much more, and it all starts with a right view of God and how He wants us to spend our short time here on this earth. Get this book and get ready to go deeper with God! Only one drawback...and this is something I've noticed with other Tozer reprints as well...the book itself is fairly poorly edited and contains some grammatical errors, incomplete sentences and wrongly used words. For example in one of his books (can't remember if it was this one) they use "feeling" instead of "filling" and there are other various mistakes where the word used does not make sense contextually and another word was meant. I would recommend getting an original edition if you can find it. It does not make sense to me how there can be so many mistakes in these reprints... Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Tozer May 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The great thing about God is that he is the same today as he was in Abraham and Moses' day. In the same vein, Tozer's insights into God are as applicable today as they were when he was alive. He was a brilliant theological mind and we are blessed to have his written comments to share for generations to come. To new Christians, I offer you a challenge: forget the dated cover of his books and buy one to read cover to cover. If you are not a fan after reading any one of his classics, I will be astounded. Unlike a lot of Christian fluff written today, Tozer delves deep into scripture and challenges his readers to see God in new ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't get any better than Tozer September 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Any serious Christian of any denomination owes it to himself/herself to read Tozer. His insights and wisdom come from years of study, a thorough knowledge of scripture, and an undeniable relationship with God. He is to Christian thought as ballet is to dance: foundational and classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tozer - Wonderful December 28, 2011
By Kay B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Anything and everything by Tozer is worth the read. This is, however, one of my favorites!
Tozer never fails to elevate the standard of worship, to challenge us to be more and to recognize the Lord God as worthy of reverence, awe, & love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening and challenging February 14, 2013
By Rob
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The thoughts by Tozer help present a clear picture of how much God desires to interact with us, His children. At the same time, this information challenges the reader in a quiet, not-threatening way to move from where he/she is to draw closer to God. The best results are gained when a particular devotional is read several times and then the reader takes the appropriate action to apply that truth to his/her life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great insight January 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My only regret is having overlooked this book for so long. It is without a doubt, one of the greatest looks at the Christian life you can possibly read. The author has great insight and presents faith in ways I had not heard before. Please...take a moment and read this. You will be blessed.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is absolutely the best for the soul. November 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book after reading The Pursuit of God. Even if it's not intended to be a sequel, if you are considering reading Tozer, this is the middle book. Begin with The Pursuit of God, then Man- The Dwelling Place of God, and then Knowledge of the Holy. If you read these three books in that order, you will be renewed in your understanding as a Christian.

Read it!
