2009 reprint of 1948 First edition. Aiden Wilson Tozer (1897-1963) was an American Christian pastor, preacher, author, magazine editor, Bible conference speaker and spiritual mentor. Hailing from a tiny farming community in western Pennsylvania, his conversion was as a teenager in Akron, Ohio. In 1919, five years after his conversion, and without formal theological training, Tozer accepted an offer to pastor his first church. This began 44 years of ministry.He was also a prolific author. Among the more than 40 books that he authored, at least two are regarded as Christian classics: The Pursuit of God and The Knowledge of the Holy. His books impress on the reader the possibility and necessity for a deeper relationship with God.Living a simple and non-materialistic lifestyle, he and his wife never owned a car, preferring bus and train travel. Even after becoming a well-known Christian author, Tozer signed away much of his royalties to those who were in need.Prayer was of vital personal importance for Tozer. His preaching as well as his writings were but extensions of his prayer life, comments his biographer, James L. Snyder, in the book, In Pursuit of God: The Life of A.W. Tozer. He had the ability to make his listeners face themselves in the light of what God was saying to them, writes Snyder.
What Does it Mean to Be "Crucified With Christ?" During his lifetime, renowned teacher A.W. Tozer was often invited to speak at seminaries, churches, and Bible conferences on the topic of the cross and its meaning for the Christian life. Now, in this never-before-published distillation of his best teaching on the subject, you will gain a fresh understanding of the cross's centrality to your walk of faith in Christ. The apostle Paul declared in his letter to the Galatians that he had been "crucified with Christ." But what does this mean? Is this a claim every believer can and should make? The Crucified Life is a comprehensive examination of these questions, answered with the deep, biblical thinking for which Tozer was revered.

"True and absolute freedom is only found in the presence of God."--A.W. Tozer Deep in the soul of every person on earth is a longing for the presence of God. But how do we get there? Experiencing the Presence of God is a never-before-published collection of teachings from A.W. Tozer on the book of Hebrews that shows us the way. Tozer, the renowned pastor and theologian, challenges our status quo, invites us to explore a fresh understanding of what it means to dwell in God's presence, and leads us to experience the divine fulfillment for which we were created! As Tozer says, "We should come to church not anticipating entertainment but expecting the high and holy manifestation of God's presence. . . . Worship is not some performance we do, but a presence we experience." Come alongside Tozer and enter into God's presence right now.
A.W. Tozer begins this book, titled, "Paths to Power," with a powerful statement about the history of the world and the role of the Christian. "The greatest event in history was the coming of Jesus Christ into the world to live and to die for mankind." In Paths to Power, Tozer makes a thesis (that God s plan) falls into line with this one simple and dramatically powerful event and then goes on to examine the state of the current church with its lukewarm moral convictions, its members who lack the power of the Spirit and its administrators who work to pay bills and fulfill their weekly obligations rather than feed the flock and pay attention to shepherding their flocks. A.W. Tozer inspires conviction to restore the church to its place of power, when it can be a moral force to be reckoned with. He states the compelling power of the burning bush that Moses saw and Tozer says, no one is afraid of mere ashes. This indictment of modern man s complacency is pungent and will hold the believer accountable of sloth and uninspired faith in the Lord. This book challenges to live a more Spirit-filled life. Tozer reminds the reader that God s work is redemption and salvation, but it is our responsibility to repent and believe, and as a result of that, to obey the Word of God. Tozer offers a stern warning against excusing sin as an affront to God.
Many Christians are familiar with the prophetic voice of Tozer, but few living today were blessed to sit under his weekly teaching from the pulpit. The Gospel of John was Tozer's favorite book of the Bible, and the focus of these writings (adapted from sermons given to his parishioners) is the Incarnation and what it means for believers' lives. Christ came down to earth to lift men and women up into the heavenlies. No other New Testament writer, not even the amazing apostle Paul, presents Christ with a passion equal to John's, whom Jesus called the Beloved. Tozer captures the spirit of John and presents his winsome and enthralling portrait of Christ, challenging readers to discover a fresh and overwhelming desire for Him. Readers will be captivated anew by the One we call Lord.
A.W. Tozer calls God the "Composer of the Cosmos," the "Chief
Musician of the Universe." He calls on the birds to chirp their
beautiful tune in the coolness and tranquility of a spring morning,
simply because that is what He designed them to do. Each note is
wonderfully constructed by God, uniquely bringing praise to His

"To the child of God there is no such thing as an accident", remarks Tozer. "We travel an appointed way!" -- a way ordered by the secret script of God's providence. Learning to discern and identify His ways while cultivating a disciplined and obedient walk with God will instill a faith based on certainty, not chance.
Dynamic, Never-Before-Published Work on the Holy Spirit from A.W. Tozer What does it mean to have the Holy Spirit in our lives? Many look to extraordinary experiences and manifestations as evidence of the Spirit. But what happens when the event is over? How can we experience the Holy Spirit in the ordinary, everyday world? How can we be filled with the Spirit? In this material taken from Tozer's sermons, he answers these questions and explores life in the Spirit from a balanced perspective. The church needs the gifts of the Spirit--all of them--or it will never be what God intends it to be. But this has to happen in wisdom and humility. Many people talk about being filled with the Holy Spirit, but very few accept the conditions for being filled. Tozer lays down requirements for the Holy Spirit to come into our lives and transform us into Spirit-filled people. Though every Christian has the Holy Spirit, not every Christian is filled with the Holy Spirit. He explains the difference and how it could change the evangelical church of today.
Tozer had a fresh perspective on Revelation -- instead of trying to interpret the various events, he looks at the underlying spiritual lessons. The basic truth of Revelation is that Jesus is victor and the central message of prophecy is repentance. Lucid and insightful exposition of a sometimes puzzling book.
During a train trip from Chicago in the late 1940s, A.W. Tozer began to work on The Pursuit of God. He wrote all night long, the words coming to him as fast as he could put them down. By the next morning, when the train pulled into McAllen, Texas, the rough draft was done.
Although written in such a remarkably short period of time, the depth, clarity and completeness of Tozer's message has made The Pursuit of God an enduring favorite -- about 1.7 million copies in print in 15 languages.
Prepare yourself for a deeply meaningful and enjoyable experience.
