Overview

A.W. Tozer was a dynamic preacher, prolific writer, and a no-nonsense man of God. Throughout his preaching career he gave practical, instructive, exhorting and invigorating lessons to and for his listeners. The A.W. Tozer Collection gives you the opportunity to meet this remarkable man and to hear his message for the Church today. It is a relevant message to call the Church back from lethargy, to reclaim the gospel’s power, and to reestablish God as the center of one’s life.

This collection consists of fifty-four volumes written by Tozer or compiled from his sermons or editorials posthumously, as well as two study guides. Many of the books were compiled by his close friend, Harry Verploegh, by Gerald B. Smith, James L. Snyder, Ron Eggert, Warren Wiersbe and others. In all, this astounding collection contains approximately 11,000 pages filled with the inspirational, Christ-centered words only Tozer could pen.

Tozer was not one to mince words. There was no wondering where he stood on a particular subject. There was no guessing as to what God required of the Christian man and woman. He could be unduly exacting one moment and humorous and filled with hope the next. But he never put himself above those to whom he was speaking. He was down there with them. He wrote for the common person: the cab driver, the milkman, the laborer, the farmer, the housewife. He wrote for you.

In the Logos edition, these volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Product Details

The Attributes of God, Volume One

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 110

An inspiring journey into the Father’s heart, Tozer concentrates on ten of God’s attributes, such as His goodness, justice, mercy, grace, holiness, etc. For Tozer, there was no question more important than “What is God Like?” These ten chapters were first preached as sermons at the Southside Alliance Church in Chicago. Tozer believed it was critically important for Christians to have a knowledge of the Holy One. Each attribute of God discussed here is presented in the light of the believer’s personal relationship with Him.

The Attributes of God, Volume Two

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 114

“It is utterly necessary that we know this God, this One that John wrote about, this One that the poet speaks about, this One that theology talks about and this One that we’re sent to preach and teach about,” Tozer writes in the introduction to his second volume on God’s attributes. Again, the chapters included here were preached as sermons, this time to the Avenue Road congregation in Toronto, Canada. Among the ten attributes Tozer focuses on are God’s transcendence, immutability, wisdom, and faithfulness. Tozer believes that Christianity has lost its dignity, its inwardness; that Christians have lost the awe, the wonder, the fear and the delight in God. He hopes through the reading of these sermons that Christians will know God again. “Nothing less than this will save us,” he warns us.

The Best of A.W. Tozer, Book One

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1978
  • Pages: 251

This collection of 52 favorite chapters represents the major themes from the works of A.W. Tozer. Each reveals deep, refreshing insight, conviction and originality of thought. Excerpts from such Tozer classics include The Pursuit of God, Of God and Men and Born After Midnight. Warren Wiersbe, who compiled the text, says, “A.W. Tozer had the gift of taking a spiritual truth and holding it up to the light so that, like a diamond, every facet was seen and admired.”

The Best of A.W. Tozer, Book Two

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1980
  • Pages: 290

Tozer wrote with a passion that sprang up from a soul athirst for God. He was not afraid to expose man’s frailties, nor was he hesitant to reveal what God and His sovereignty can do for those who seek Him. This collection of 44 more chapters from Tozer’s “best” captures the message he so passionately taught and lived: surrender to Christ, get to know God personally and grow to become like Him. Warren Wiersbe, who compiled this text, says, “Happy is the Christian who has a Tozer book handy when his soul is parched and he feels God is far away.”

Born After Midnight

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1989
  • Pages: 142

This is another collection of Tozer’s essays from Alliance Life. Tozer has said that revivals are born after midnight because they “require a serious mind and a determined heart to pray past the ordinary into the unusual.” These insightful selections point out the disparity between human ways and God’s way. We are cajoled to rise above mere living, to press toward the blessings offered by the Holy Spirit. Christians often fail to reach beyond themselves to all that God has for them and to live in the extraordinary realm of close union with Christ.

Christ the Eternal Son

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1991
  • Pages: 175

Using the first three chapters of the Gospel of John, Tozer presents a Christ far more glorious than most believers have ever envisioned. Jesus’ glory, Tozer proclaims, “lay in the fact that He was perfect love in a loveless world; that He was perfect purity in an impure world; that He was perfect meekness in a harsh and quarrelsome world.”

The Christian Book of Mystical Verse

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1963
  • Pages: 164

Tozer has compiled many of the Church’s profound mystical voices that have given us beautiful poetry, songs, and words of praise. For Tozer, these evangelical mystics had “been brought by the gospel into intimate fellowship with the Godhead.” Tozer does not want these voices to be ignored or forgotten and has gathered them here “to make available to present-day Christians a rich spiritual heritage which the great number of [us] for various reasons do not now enjoy.” This is intended for the worshiper whose longing for God is true and yet lacks “the gift that would enable them to express their feelings adequately.” The hymns and poems Tozer has compiled are mystical in the sense that they are God-oriented—they begin with God, embrace the worshiping soul and return to God again. Among the voices chosen are Isaac Watts, Frederick William Faber, Christina Rossetti, Charles Wesley, Paul Gerhardt, Jeanne Marie de la Motte-Guyon, and Thomas More.

The Counselor

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1993
  • Pages: 164

The Counselor explains how to develop a relationship with the third Person of the Trinity. Tozer speaks to the current conflict and confusion about the Holy Spirit from a perspective that is balanced and biblical, yet devotional and practical.

Discipleship: What It Truly Means to Be a Christian

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publisher: Moody
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 308

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Discipleship lies at the center of Christian life and practice. It is a beautiful journey, in which each of us simultaneously attempt to become more like Christ and to help others do the same. It is our most important task on earth, but often it is neglected or misunderstood. A.W. Tozer, on the other hand, knew exactly what it meant to disciple and to be discipled. Discipleship: What It Truly Means to Be a Christian is a collection of Tozer’s powerful and passionate writings on discipleship.

Whether you are a new believer or have known Christ for a lifetime, Tozer’s words will encourage and inspire you to love Jesus more. Come and be discipled by this beloved spiritual writer.

The Early Tozer: A Word in Season

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1997
  • Pages: 121

These are selected articles from Tozer’s pen, compiled by James L. Snyder. These short essays, Snyder reminds us, are not sermons but “the casual musings of a man in tune with not only the world around him, but with God.” Many of these essays were written in transit to numerous speaking engagements, when Tozer was alone with God and compelled to put his thoughts on paper. Here you will discover the wit and spiritual insight of an early Tozer who offers his readers a true “word in season.”

Gems From Tozer

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1979
  • Pages: 96

These are selections from the writings of Tozer meant to encourage, forewarn, and convict the believer so that he or she does not run the risk of becoming complacent. This small volume focuses on the greatness of God and the honor due Him in worship. In it Tozer reminds us that we are here to be worshipers first and workers second. God wants new converts to learn, in a sense, to sit at Jesus’ feet, before being put to work for His cause. “The work done by a worshiper will have eternity in it.” The supreme test for our religious work is to know the place Jesus occupies in it. Is He the Lord or a symbol; is He in charge of the project or merely one of the crew?

God Tells the Man Who Cares

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1994
  • Pages: 214

Tozer beckons us to hear God’s call and pursue a right relationship with Him. From his meditation on Psalm 46:10 to his reflections on Christian service throughout history, Tozer highlights examples of servanthood worthy of emulation. “Christ is every man’s contemporary. His presence and power are offered to us in this time of mad activity and mechanical noises as certainly as to the fisherman on the quiet lake of Galilee…The only condition is that we get still enough to hear his voice and that we believe and heed what we hear,” says Tozer. The chapters in this book are messages of concern, exposing the weaknesses of the church and denouncing compromise. Though they warn and exhort, they are messages of hope as well.

God’s Pursuit of Man

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1950
  • Pages: 138

Although written two years after the publication of The Pursuit of God, Tozer’s God’s Pursuit of Man is considered its prequel because it sets forth the biblical truth that before man can pursue God, God must first pursue man. In this book, previously published as The Pursuit of Man Tozer speaks fervently of God’s desire for man to be saved and the action He takes as He “invades” the human soul. It is then, Tozer explains, that the Holy Spirit can teach us the mystery of the triune God.

I Call it Heresy

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1997
  • Pages: 210

These twelve chapters are from sermons based on First Peter. Tozer preached these at the Southside Alliance Church in Chicago. Tozer attacks the “notable heresy” that humans can choose to accept Christ and then think they have the right to postpone indefinitely obedience to Him as Lord. Tozer warns “that salvation apart from obedience is unknown in the sacred Scriptures”.

I Talk Back to the Devil

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1990
  • Pages: 148

These twelve essays focus on the courage necessary for Christians in their spiritual battle. From the Preface, Tozer proclaims that, “I have never given more time and more pain and more prayer to any other series of sermons in my ministry. Because of their importance, I have literally felt Satan attempting to thwart the purpose of God. I have felt I was in raw contact with hell.” These are straight-forward appeals for Christ-like living, to help you resist the temptation to become a “run-of-the-mill” Christian.

Jesus, Author of Our Faith

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1988
  • Pages: 150

These are sermons Tozer preached on the second half of the book of Hebrews at Avenue Road Alliance Church in Toronto. We must, Tozer warns, refuse to walk in agreement with the ungodly multitude of our own generation. Here he concentrates on faith—how it answers when God calls, how it has eyes only for Jesus, how it rests on an unchanging Jesus.

Jesus is Victor!

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1989
  • Pages: 170

Jesus is Victor! brings a fresh perspective to the study of the book of Revelation. Instead of attempting to interpret the various events that occur in the text, Tozer looks at the underlying spiritual lessons. Many books on biblical eschatology have been written, but few speak to the central message of prophecy—repentance! Tozer takes Revelation’s perplexing text and draws practical applications for today. Tozer’s lucid and insightful exposition will incite readers to holy living in preparation for the day when Jesus will return to earth victorious.

Jesus, Our Man in Glory

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1987
  • Pages: 136

These are sermons Tozer preached on the first half of the book of Hebrews at Southside Alliance Church. He centers the themes found in Hebrews on Jesus and discloses Him as being God’s final revelation, the heir of all things, the Lord of the angels, the eternal Word, the Mediator of the new will, and the fulfillment of God’s plan.

Let My People Go: The Life of Robert A. Jaffray

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1990
  • Pages: 141

Robert Jaffray was a missionary statesman of the early 20th century who turned his back on wealth and power to serve in China. He helped open French Indochina to The Christian and Missionary Alliance, an evangelical Protestant denomination that began as two separate organizations to promote a higher Christian life and to mobilize Christians in the work of foreign missionary efforts. Jaffray stayed in Wuzhou, China for 35 years where his keen administrating, voluminous writing and incessant strategizing made him a natural leader. He was arrested in 1942 by the Japanese during WWII and was kept in internment camps until he died in 1945 from illness and malnutrition. In this biography of Jaffray, Tozer’s aim was to “capture the spirit of Jaffray, to present him as a real human being.”

Man: the Dwelling Place of God

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1997
  • Pages: 195

The chapters here were originally published as editorials in Alliance Life, a magazine Tozer edited for thirteen years. This book deals with many aspects of one subject: the relationship of God and man. In chapter ten, Tozer reminds us in no uncertain terms that “We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world….We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum.”

Meditations on the Trinity

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publisher: Moody
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 318

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

A.W. Tozer is known for many things. He’s known for his powerful writing style. He’s known for being vigorously biblical. And he’s known for gazing upon God intently in Scripture, and then telling readers plainly what he sees.

Can a Christian ever finish contemplating the Trinity? It is an inexhaustible mystery, but one that rewards continual reflection. Readers of Meditations on the Trinity will receive a more accurate view of who God is, and in turn—as Tozer would be quick to point out—offer him truer worship. Knowing God is the chief end of man, and this book will help readers nearer that goal.

Men Who Met God

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1986
  • Pages: 128

A companion to the first volume, this book continues the spiritual growth of the reader who makes it part of his daily worship. None of the selections here is repeated from volume one. Most of them have been gleaned from Tozer’s taped sermons and editorials. Much of the material consists of concerns for spiritual progress and believer’s readiness and preparation to meet his Lord and King. The book also includes a subject index and a scripture index.

The Next Chapter After the Last

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1987
  • Pages: 126

Here is that master of words at work again, speaking plainly of things that pertain to life and godliness. Compiled by Tozer's longtime friend, Harry Verploegh, these essays (originally published in Alliance Life magazine) are brief but eloquent affirmations of Christian orthodoxy. In The Next Chapter After the Last Tozer celebrated the fact that Jesus’ life does not end in death, and therefore those who believe in Him also have a new chapter to look forward to after death.

Of God and Men

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1995
  • Pages: 170

Men and women actually becoming like God—is it possible? And if it is, how can it be accomplished? “The title of this book gives sufficient indication of what the reader will find in it,” Tozer says in the foreword. “God and men and their relation to each other—this I believe to be all that really matters in this world, and that is what I have written about here.” In the chapters that follow, Tozer elaborates on the relationship between God and His people and spurs readers on to Christ-like practices. This series of editorials, arranged and edited by Tozer, covers such topics as confronting everyday problems, adjusting our attitudes, developing discernment and eliminating lethargy in the church. To become more like God, men and women must enter into a relationship with Him. Of God and Men will lead you in the right direction.

Paths to Power

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1911
  • Pages: 64

God intends for us to receive the power to use for His glory and our blessing. Tozer helps us examine our steps along the journey. In these pages Tozer presents an outline which at the least serves to suggest the way to greater spiritual power for believers. The path is what leads to somewhere; for Tozer, it leads to a life of abundant grace promised in Scripture. He reminds us that a knowledge of truth is not enough; the truth must be followed in order to experience the blessedness described in these pages.

The Price of Neglect

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1991
  • Pages: 154

The Price of Neglect is a collection of editorials written while Tozer was editor of Alliance Life. Secularism, carnal worship and worldly lifestyles are the price we pay for neglecting God’s Word and prayer. He gives us an accurate description of unseemly religious and moral conditions and shows us where they are leading the church.

The Pursuit of God

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1948
  • Pages: 121

If you are thirsting for more of God, Tozer’s timeless classic will draw you into a deep, abiding relationship with the One who “nourishes the soul.” This spiritual masterpiece exposes the roadblocks that keep us from fully knowing God, reveals our responsibility of the pursuit, and ultimately leads us into the very presence of God Himself. Much of what you read here came out of the crucible of Tozer’s own personal experience. Dr. David J. Fant, Jr., one of Tozer’s biographers, said that “Tozer literally wrote The Pursuit of God on his knees. Perhaps that explains its power and the blessing that has rested on it.”

Jonathan L. Graf’s 110-page study guide to The Pursuit of God has been added to this collection as a separate resource so you can have both books open together side-by-side. Graf wrote it to help the reader apply the truths and reflect upon the major points found in Tozer’s classic book.

The Radical Cross

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 150

This is a collection of Tozer’s writings on the cross of Christ. It is an in-depth look at the various meanings of the cross, written to challenge the reader to make the cross his or her own and to live the passion of Christ. The cross speaks to the deepest hurts of the human heart, which hungers for truth, love, justice and forgiveness. These four longings can only be fulfilled at Christ’s cross, where they all converge. “The way of the Cross is still the pain-wracked path to spiritual power and fruitfulness,” Tozer reminds us. Arranged thematically, The Radical Cross discusses the cross’s promises, its price, its purpose, its pain, its provisions and its paradox.

Renewed Day by Day, Volume One

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1991
  • Pages: 382

These 365 devotions, one for each day, are a distillation of the wisdom of Tozer gleaned in his lifelong pursuit of God; each is a profound call to worship and an opportunity for Christians to build their spiritual muscle. The book includes a subject index and a scripture index.

Renewed Day by Day, Volume Two

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1991
  • Pages: 386

A companion to the first volume, this book continues the spiritual growth of the reader who makes it part of his daily worship. None of the selections here is repeated from volume one. Most of them have been gleaned from Tozer’s taped sermons and editorials. Much of the material consists of concerns for spiritual progress and believer’s readiness and preparation to meet his Lord and King. The book also includes a subject index and a scripture index.

The Root of the Righteous

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1955
  • Pages: 186

The chapters herein were originally published as editorials in Alliance Life magazine. In these forty-six essays, Tozer taps into the bedrock of true spirituality, addressing earthbound living while keeping heaven in view. In chapter four Tozer advises that “No man has any right to offer advice who has not first heard God speak. No man has any right to counsel others who is not ready to hear and follow the counsel of the Lord.” In chapter twenty-four we are reminded that “To pray effectively it is required of us that there be no unblessed areas in our lives, no parts of the mind or soul that are not inhabited by the Spirit, no impure desires allowed to live within us, no disparity between our prayers and our conduct.”

Rut, Rot or Revival

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1993
  • Pages: 163

In this powerful collection of verbatim sermons, A.W. Tozer deals with revival issues: the problem of ‘sleeping’ Christians controlling church affairs, the problem of getting out of the ecclesiastical rut, and the difficulty of breaking the status quo. This is Tozer, pulpit-style—humor included. Warren Wiersbe says in the Foreword: “If the messages in this book were read and acted upon by every pastor and church member, we would have the revival for which Dr. Tozer fervently prayed and for which many of us are praying today.”

The Set of the Sail

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1986
  • Pages: 172

These are essays selected from The Alliance Witness,the magazine Tozer edited. Each essay is brief, thoughtful, sometimes bitter commentary on religious scene Christian walk. Use this as devotional, pick-me-up when life seems be closing in, a book reflection meditation. urges us to “set our sails God,” that way, no matter which way wind blows, we will find ourselves going in right direction. Some topics Tozer addresses are benefits of prayer, need for sanctified thinking, trying the spirits, and discipleship.

The Size of the Soul

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1992
  • Pages: 168

Here is a collection of editorials formerly published in Alliance Life, which focus on such topics as the Christian’s hope, the need for personal reformation, the causes of religious confusion, and the need for prophetic insight.

Success and the Christian: The Cost of Spiritual Maturity

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1994
  • Pages: 152

Tozer reminds us that authentic spiritual success cuts across much of contemporary thought. It is foremost to magnify God, then to mortify or crucify the flesh, and lastly to simplify your life. These, for Tozer, are the paths to a dynamic spiritual life. The chapters of this book were originally preached as sermons at Southside Alliance Church in Chicago. In Chapter 3 Tozer laments that “this is the day of the magnification of slick personalities, and as we magnify men, we minimize God.” Tozer proclaims in the chapter entitled The Secret of Victory that “We are to exalt God above all things and to live so that His glory is exalted above the heavens. This is the ladder by which you climb to the kingdom of power and the lever by which you move mountains.”

That Incredible Christian

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1964
  • Pages: 170

Compiled by Anita M. Bailey, these essays show us how heaven’s children are to live on earth. The thread that ties this edition of Tozer’s essays together is “recognizing God for who He is and giving Him the worship and honor due Him,” says Bailey in the Introduction. In these forty-one essays Tozer tells us that God intends for truth to move us to moral action, that the Holy Spirit is working to bring the believer into a spiritual development that accords with the nature of the Heavenly Father, and that whatever keeps us from the Bible is our enemy no matter how seemingly harmless it appears to be.

This World: Playground or Battleground?

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1989
  • Pages: 121

There was a time, Tozer says, when Christianity exercised a dominant influence over the thinking of our forefathers, when they knew the world was a battlefield. They believed in sin, the devil, and hell as constituting one force pitted against the other force of God and righteousness and heaven. People today, however, think of the world, Tozer laments, not as a battleground, but as a playground; the world has become a place to frolic, not a place to fight. Although Tozer sees the world as a battlefield, he sees it as one where the victory is certain.

Topical Reader—Volumes 1 & 2

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1998
  • Pages: 657

Compiled by Ron Eggert, these quotable excerpts, taken from Tozer’s rich ministry, capture Tozer’s essence. The two volumes of the Topical Reader are great for pastors, teachers and any layperson interested in pursuing God. The books cover Tozer’s ideas from Absolutes to Knowledge and from Laodicea to Zeal. A topical index is included.

Tozer on Christian Leadership

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 370

These devotionals, excerpted from Tozer’s writings, reflect his passion for God-ordained, Christ-centered, Spirit-led visionary leadership, whether it be in the home, the workplace or the Church. Leadership, Tozer once said, “is a spiritual thing and should be so understood by everyone. It takes more than a ballot to make a leader.”

Tozer on the Almighty God

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 370

This 366-day devotional focuses on the work of the Holy Spirit in a Christian’s life. These pages, excerpted from Tozer’s writings reflect the passion that drove him to state, “If we are going to reproduce Christ on earth and be Christlike, we must have the Spirit of Christ.” In this volume, Tozer encourages his readers to recognize the Holy Spirit as a Person and to pursue an intimate relationship with Him. Each one-page devotional incorporates Scripture for the day and is enhanced by supporting quotations by classical authors.

  • Publication Date: 2000
  • Pages: 370

This 366-day devotional focuses on the work of the Holy Spirit in a Christian’s life. These pages, excerpted from Tozer’s writings reflect the passion that drove him to state, “If we are going to reproduce Christ on earth and be Christlike, we must have the Spirit of Christ.” In this volume, Tozer encourages his readers to recognize the Holy Spirit as a Person and to pursue an intimate relationship with Him. Each one-page devotional incorporates Scripture for the day and is enhanced by supporting quotations by classical authors.

Tozer on Worship and Entertainment

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1997
  • Pages: 209

Here in one volume is a collection of Tozer's thoughts on worship and entertainment chosen from taped recordings of his preaching and from editorials, columns and books, some previously unpublished. These selections are the essence of Tozer's convictions on decadence within the Church. Also included is his essay, The Menace of the Religious Movie. Of worship, Tozer reminds us that it is “to feel in the heart and express in an appropriate manner a humbling but delightful sense of admiring awe.” Regarding entertainment, he exhorts that “We must have a new reformation. There must come a violent break with that irresponsible, amusement-mad, paganized pseudo-religion which passes today for the faith of Christ and which is being spread all over the world by unspiritual men employing unscriptural methods to achieve their ends.”

The Tozer Pulpit, Volume One

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1994

The Tozer Pulpit, Volume Two

  • Author: A.W. Tozer

Tozer Speaks to Students

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1998
  • Pages: 168

These are messages delivered by Mr. Tozer at chapel services at Wheaton College during the 1940s and 1950s. Transcribed from tapes, Tozer’s message is practical and powerful, challenging his young hearers to pursue God. This is life-changing reading for contemporary students. Tozer had a profound impact on college students and considered it part of his calling to encourage and equip young people to glorify God and fulfill the Great Commission.

Tragedy in the Church: The Missing Gifts

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1990
  • Pages: 138

In this collection of 12 profound and prophetic sermons, Tozer points out why so many Christians and churches today are weak. But he doesn’t leave us without hope. His words will uplift our spirits as we recognize what God wants to do in and through us. “I believe the Holy Spirit of God wants to do some gracious new thing in our midst! [L]et us throw ourselves out on the great fullness of God with expectation,” Tozer exclaims. His consistent yearning was that every assembly of believers would realize its full potential for the honor of Jesus Christ.

The Warfare of the Spirit

The Warfare of the Spirit is a collection of 41 editorials written while Tozer was editor of Alliance Life Magazine. In one of them he comments, “Sin is a poisonous weed that throws the whole nature out of order. The inner life disintegrates; the flesh lusts after forbidden pleasures; the moral judgment is distorted so that often good appears evil and evil good; time is chosen over eternity, earth over heaven and death over life.” Here Tozer shows the difference between religious ritual—where the person “pretends to religion but refuses to come under its total domination”—and the presence of the indwelling Christ.

We Travel an Appointed Way

These 38 essays chosen by Harry Verploegh were, as many other compilations, editorials Tozer wrote for the Alliance Life. Tozer did not believe the Christian experienced “accidents,” because he or she travels an appointed way. Our way is ordered by God’s hidden providence, and true faith displaces any possibility for chance or misfortune. Learning to discern and identify God’s ways while cultivating a disciplined and obedient walk with Him will instill a faith based on certainty, not chance.

Whatever Happened to Worship?

In ten hard-hitting chapters, Tozer stresses the power of Godly worship, condemning Christians’ compulsion to substitute work for worship. Our entire life and attitudes must be directed toward worship of God if we are to fulfill God’s design for creation. Tozer reminds us that worship of the loving God is man’s whole reason for existence. That is why we were created and why we have been recreated. Tozer says, “I am of the opinion that we should not be concerned about working for God until we have learned the meaning and the delight of worshiping Him.”

Wingspread—A.B. Simpson: A Study in Spiritual Altitude

  • Author: A.W. Tozer
  • Publication Date: 1943
  • Pages: 143

With a sympathetic heart and an objective mental approach, Tozer, in this short biography, gives us a sketch of the life of Albert Benjamin Simpson. Tozer reminds us that we have received from A. B. Simpson’s life and teachings “such immeasurable benefits that we feel forever bound to thank the thoughtful God who gave him to the church.” Simpson arose from inauspicious beginnings to prominence through Presbyterian pastorates when he resigned from his comfortable pulpit to launch a ministry aimed at reaching the world’s lost multitudes. That ministry blossomed into The Christian and Missionary Alliance, a denomination characterized by its Christ-centered teaching and missionary emphasis. Wingspread is a story of one of God’s chosen leaders that will captivate and challenge the reader.

Who Put Jesus on the Cross

Mr. Tozer gives us twelve messages on Christian maturity that he originally preached at Southside Alliance Church. He tells us that “it is characteristic of the natural man to keep himself so busy with unimportant trifles that he is able to avoid the settling of the most important matters relating to life and existence.” We dream of becoming great, he says, when we should be spending time in concern about being good. He stresses the need for Christians to remember that Jesus came to bring an end of self—not to educate it or tolerate it or polish it.

Few subjects invigorated A. W. Tozer like the topic of worship. He saw it—like the church has traditionally—as the sole reason for which creation exists.

Worship: The Reason We Were Created features collections from the beloved spiritual writer on this important topic. The church’s current worship is emaciated; its thoughts of God are too low. Here is a compilation to raise those thoughts high once more and provoke the church to true, spiritual worship.

Topics include:

  • The act and object of worship
  • The presence of God
  • Worship throughout the week
  • Feelings and emotion in worship
  • Man as a worshipping creature

If it’s true that we are made to worship God, that it is the sole reason that we exist, that we are most alive when we live for His glory, then reading Worship is more than time well spent. It is time invested in the very foundation of your life.

About A.W. Tozer

Aiden Wilson Tozer (1897-1963) was born on a small farm in what is now Newburg, PA. His family moved to Akron, Ohio, when he was just a young boy. At the age of 17, Tozer heard a street preacher, responded to the calling of Christ, and began his lifelong pursuit of God. After becoming an active witness of Jesus as a lay preacher, he joined The Christian and Missionary Alliance and was soon serving as the pastor of West Virginia’s Alliance Church, in 1919. He transferred to the Southside Alliance Church in Chicago in 1928, and his ministry continued there for 31 years. During that time he preached on the Moody Bible Institute’s radio station. In the 1940s Tozer was invited to speak at Wheaton College, and seldom a year passed after World War II that he didn’t preach in the college’s Pierce Chapel. In 1950 he became the editor of The Alliance Life magazine and served in that capacity until his death.

Self-taught, with no formal Bible training, Tozer has been called a twentieth-century prophet within his own lifetime. Through years of diligent study and constant prayer, he sought the mind of God. A master craftsman in the use of the English language, he was able to write in a simple, cogent style the principles of truth he had learned. For Tozer, “there was no substitute for knowing God firsthand.” He wrote many of his books with one idea in mind—that his reader would achieve the heart’s true goal in God and maintain that relationship with Him.

Tozer moved to Toronto in 1959 and spent the final years of his life as the pastor of Avenue Road Church. He and his wife, Ada, lived a simple, non-materialistic lifestyle and let much of the royalties from his books go to those in need. The Tozers had seven children, six boys and one girl. James L. Snyder, said of Tozer that his “preaching as well as his writings were but extensions of his prayer life. He had the ability to make his listeners face themselves in the light of what God was saying to them.”
