About the Author
A.W. Tozer embarked upon a lifelong pursuit of God at the age of 17 after hearing a street preacher in Akron, Ohio. He was a self-taught pastor, writer, and editor whose powerful messages continue to grip the hearts and stir the souls of today's believers. He penned more than 45 books, including the classics The Pursuit of God, The Knowledge of the Holy, and The Purpose of Man.
James L. Snyder is the pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala, Florida. He is recognized as an authority on the life and ministry of A.W. Tozer and has written a number of books and essays in Christian periodicals about Tozer. Snyder has a weekly radio ministry and writes a nationally syndicated newspaper column.

However, there is MORE. As usual Tozer brings it down to our personal lives and makes it practical but he also talks about the application to the Church as well as the individual.
One of the most important topics Tozer touches on is 'right doctrine' verses LIFE, or living the doctrine that we believe in. It seems to me that one of the great deceptions today, in the Church and with many believers is that they have reduced FAITH to believing in 'right doctrine' and it does NOT matter how you live! This is what the book of James was addressing, "you SAY you have faith?" "I will SHOW you my faith..." In other words TRUE faith can be seen, it makes a difference in HOW we live, not merely how we think!
I have read MANY books on this topic over the last 30+ years, and I have recently read two other books on this topic, so I know a lot about the subject. However, I am STILL working on LIVING IT out. It is not easy but it is RIGHT, it IS the 'Right Way', and you will find JOY on this road, no matter how morose it may seem now.
DEAR Brother and Sister PLEASE - Don't be deceived by GOING the easy and WIDE way.
This has been my favorite quote thus far: 'God has given you the wind, the rain, a body to contain your wonderful soul. He sustains you, holds you up, keeps your heart beating and waits to receive you yonder. But do you toss Him a crumb, so God gets what is left behind? Does God get only the tattered bits of your time, yet you say you are a follower of the Lamb? Do not fool yourself. You are not it you don't go deeper into the crucified life.' it is so very important for believers to seek God with all of their heart. This is a good book for a Christian early in their walk as it will help them understand the importance of 'panting after God' and what they can do to grow in their walk.
This book is all about self-denial, self-death, self-distrust, and denial of your carnal desires/temptations. The beauty of it all though is it also is ALL about Jesus and how to orchestrate your life as a song for His glory and love. Anyone can turn their life into a fragrant offering before the Lord our God, and this book is just another method to open your heart and soul for this beautiful task.
