Brief Biography:A 20th-century prophet" they called him even in his lifetime. For 31 years he was pastor of Southside Alliance Church in Chicago, where his reputation as a man of God was citywide. Concurrently he became editor of Alliance Life, a responsibility he fulfilled until his death in 1963. His greatest legacy to the Christian world has been his 30 books. Because A.W. Tozer lived in the presence of God he saw clearly and he spoke as a prophet to the church. He sought for God's honor with the zeal of Elijah and mourned with Jeremiah at the apostasy of God's people. But he was not a prophet of despair. His writings are messages of concern. They expose the weaknesses of the church and denounce compromise. They warn and exhort. But they are messages of hope as well, for God is always there, ever faithful to restore and to fulfill His Word to those who hear and obey.

I came across this little cameo of Tozer in the ChristianityToday, Leadership Newsletter, written by Gordon MacDonald, Leadership editor at large."Tozer was shy when it came to pastoring people one on one. He was tough and confrontational in the pulpit. He was impatient with people whose Christian life was the sum of their doctrines and little more. But he excelled in the practice of intercessory prayer. He was known to have a set of bib overalls which he would put on over his shirt and tie. So dressed, he would prostrate himself on the floor of his study and pray. I have talked to people who shared this experience with him."
Tozer may have been shy with people, but he wasn't shy with God. And he has taught so many other people to have the same bold appraoch to the Father. Learn of Him. Know Him. "The Pursuit Of God" should be required reading for all Christians. My prayer life was certainly never the same after reading it!Ed
Hi Pastor Ed!A warm welcome to you. I could not agree more.At the sake of redundancy for everyone else here, it was Tozer that not only reversed everything for me personally after reading "The Knowledge of The Holy" and then "Pursuit", but a 'chance' mention of his sermons here that has firmly planted me as the site jester roaming and rambling about these parts.A bit tongue in cheek, but someone coined the phrase "Tozerphiles" for us types.Welcome to the club! :-) Edit: By the way, great site you have there!"[i]The Loving Heart is a learning resource for Bible-believing Christians, especially those new to the faith.[/i]"Highly recommended![url=http://www.thelovingheart.net/default.htm]http://www.thelovingheart.net[/url]
