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.
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:
