Except for C. S. Lewis and Oswald Chambers, it is difficult to find a 20th-century Protestant author who has a wider audience than Tozer. With more than 3 million books in print, the works of Tozer find their place on library shelves literally around the world.
However, it is less well-known that Tozer had a particularly profound impact on college students. This volume consists of never-before-published chapel messages and sermons preached during 1952 and 1954 at Wheaton College.
"In many ways, Tozer's messages are just as timely today as they were a generation ago," notes compiler and editor Dr. Lyle Dorsett. "The truths are timeless. It is my prayer that he will speak to you with the same life-changing power that he spoke to his generation."
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.
