The Life of A. W. Tozer: In Pursuit of God


Regal 2009

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


A.W. Tozer’s spiritual legacy continues today as his writings challenge readers to a deeper relationship and worship of God in reverence and adoration. To understand this continued and far-reaching ministry, it is important to know who he was, including his relationship with God. Here is Tozer’s life story, from boyhood and his conversion at age 17, to his years of pastoring and writing more than 40 books, at least two regarded as Christian classics that continue to appear on bestseller lists today.

Learn from a prophet with much to say about the compromises he observed in contemporary Christian living and the hope he found in his incredible God. The Life of A. W. Tozer gives a behind-the-scenes look at the man and his message. We see God at work with hammer and chisel to shape Tozer’s life into a vessel capable of influencing all who desire to walk with God.

The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of Scripture. Biblical passages link directly to your English translations and original-language texts, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about the Word of God.
