Tozer Is Timeless

A Revivalist in every sense of the word, A.W. Tozer  (April 21, 1897 – May 12, 1963) was a voice  crying in the wilderness to his generation.  He ministered for 44 years with the Christian and Missionary Alliance church–including 30 years as pastor of Southside Alliance Church in Chicago (1928 to 1959)– but his pulpit and pen have made a profound impact of the whole body of Christ. His message is timeless because it is focused on recovering and sustaining an intimate focus on God in a secular and religious culture full of distractions.

Humble Beginnings

Born into poverty, Tozer was forced to work at a young age and never graduated high school. He found Christ at age 17 and immediately began to immerse himself in the Word, in prayer, and study of the Christian classics. At age 22 he accepted his first pastorate. If you have not yet read any of Tozer, you have been missing out! If you have, then you know once is not enough! Below are some quotes from this remarkable man of God:

Faith is the least self-regarding of the virtues. It is by its very nature scarcely conscious of its own existence. Like the eye which sees everything in front of it and never sees itself, faith is occupied with the Object upon which it rests and pays no attention to itself at all. While we are looking at God we do not see ourselves — blessed riddance.” (…from the Tozer classic “Pursuit of God)

I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven. (AW Tozer)
