Overview

Renowned preacher and theologian A. W. Tozer believed that clear, trustworthy, and biblical teaching on end-times prophesies was of paramount importance—not least because in his day, as in ours, there were untrustworthy voices claiming certainty about the time of the Lord’s return. The Christian’s sole focus, he insisted, must not be on predictions but on the Person of Christ.

This volume contains Tozer’s never-before-published teaching on the book of Revelation. Discover his fresh and timely perspective on the purpose of prophesy, which he believed is to lift our gaze from the immediate to the eternal. Preparing for Jesus’ Return offers a panoramic view of what is to come and examines what it means for you, your church, and the world. No one knows when the Lord will return, but the assurance of his coming is our blessed hope!

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.

About A. W. Tozer

A. W. 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 age 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 1928, he transferred to the Southside Alliance Church in Chicago, 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.
