The way of the cross is still the pain-wracked path to spiritual power and fruitfulness.
So do not seek to hide from it.
Do not accept an easy way.
Do not allow yourself to be patted to sleep in a comfortable church, void of power and barren of fruit.
Do not paint the cross nor deck it with flowers.
Take it for what it is, as it is, and you fill find the rugged way to death and life.
Let it slay you utterly.
- A. W. Tozer, from "Coddled or Crucified?" in The Radical Cross
In this collection of short essays, Tozer considers with piercing conviction the offense and power of the cross. May you venture unguarded into this book, that you might be utterly changed.
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.
