A.W. Tozer

ďA 20th-century prophetĒ they called him even in his lifetime. For 31 years he 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 his 30 books. Because A.W. Tozer lived in the presence of God he saw clearly and he spoke as a prophet to the church. He sought for Godís honor with the zeal of Elijah and mourned with Jeremiah at the apostasy of Godís people. But he was not a prophet of despair. His writings are messages of concern. They expose the weaknesses of the church and denounce compromise. They warn and exhort. But they are messages of hope as well, for God is always there, ever faithful to restore and to fulfill His Word to those who hear and obey.

Tozer left a vast treasure of spiritual wealth to read, digest and put into practice. The excerpts below are only a taste of what is to be found in the whole of his work.
