"God has nothing to say to the frivolous man." - A. W. Tozer
Tozer states this bluntly in the book's beginning, and he carries the sentiment through the last chapter.
In God Tells the Man Who Cares, Tozer urges the believer to be vigilant in his pursuit of God's voice in his life. He reminds us that stillness and meditation on the Spirit of God may be more spiritually profitable than the front of religion that is so prevalent in modern society. Stillness is the quality that is so often lost in the business of today's world. To be still and know that He is God is an old truth that is much quoted but rarely lived.
Tozer's convicting voice will bring you to a new and humbling place in your relationship with the Lord. He invites you to lay your emotions at God's feet, provides insight into the true nature of a servant's heart, and decries many aspects of institutionalized Christianity, warning against artificial religion with these words: "[It] is a disease of the soul, and can only be healed by the Physician of souls."
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.
