A "20th-century prophet" many called him during his lifetime. For 31 years A.W.Tozer was pastor of Southside Alliance Church in Chicago. He was involved in the missionary alliance movement for most of his pulpit life. A.W. Tozer lived in the presence of God he saw clearly and he spoke as a prophet to the church. He sought for God's honor with the zeal of Elijah and mourned with Jeremiah at the apostasy of God's people.
Tozer powerfully delivers a message on the Holy character of God. This is a doctrine and truth that he shares has been lost in our day of humanistic christianity. We have lost the sense of the awful and awesome presence of God. He is not to be feared anymore but to played with and cuddled. May God revive to the church a healthy respect of this Holy God we worship.
