Meditations on Lent, from one of the church's greatest English writers
From the Grave is a collection of 40 daily readings from the beloved 20th-century pastor and writer A. W. Tozer (1887-1963). Gleaned from his transcribed sermons, editorials, and published books, each moving reflection has been carefully selected for the season of Lent.
The purpose of Lent is to prepare us for commemorating Jesus's self-sacrifice, and to help us experience concretely the journey from death to new life. In that spirit, From the Grave was compiled to aid your conformity to Christ by addressing themes like:
Christ's passion, death, and resurrection Mortification of the flesh Self-denial and cross-bearing New life in Christ Christian obedience and resurrection hope
Each day features a brief reading and one or more passages of Scripture for meditation. As you move through each day, may your heart and your will journey from the garden to the grave to the light of day. Reflecting on the self-sacrificial work of Christ, may you offer your own life as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable, worshipful and pleasing, and with reverence and gratitude in your heart to God.
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.
