The Early Tozer: A Word in Season is a compilation by James L. Snyder containing selected articles by A. W. Tozer from his earliest years. In the1940s and 50s, A. W. Tozer wrote a regular column for the Alliance Weekly, and this book is a selection of many of those editorials (all published before Pursuit of God). In fact, these editorials were instrumental in getting Tozer elected to the office of editor of Alliance Weekly from 1950-1963.
Tozer opens with a reminder that we are all in debt to God for His grace. The rest of the chapters fall into place from this cornerstone of the belief. Tozer covers such issues as repentance, public readings of Scripture, and the notion that a church's ministry is a gauge of its spiritual well-being. He urges sincerity among believers, for them to be in fellowship with one another and with God.
Tozer stands firm in his theology and his unapologetic criticisms of the modern church. He declares that the most important thing is a right relationship with God, while reminding his readers that as believers, they are saved by the grace of God on His terms, as well as revealing anew the importance of surrendering to His will.
A. W. Tozer died in 1963, but his life and spiritual legacy continue to draw many into a deeper knowledge of God. During his lifetime, Tozer pastored several Christian and Missionary Alliance churches. Missions and the deeper life in Christ were his primary focus. He also served as editor of the Alliance Life. Tozer authored more than 40 books, (at least two of which are considered classics: The Pursuit of God and Knowledge of the Holy), a tremendous accomplishment for a man who never received a formal theological education. The presence of God was his classroom, his notebooks and tools consisted of prayer, God's Word, and the writings of early Christians and theologians, the Puritans, and great men of faith. - Publisher.
