"I fear we shall never see another Tozer. Men like him are not college-bred but Spirit-taught." Leonard Ravenhill, 20th century British evangelist.

Pastor A. W. Tozer, author of the Christian classics The Pursuit of God and The Knowledge of the Holy, was a complex, intensely private, deeply spiritual man, and a gifted preacher whose impact for the kingdom of God is immeasurable. In this thoughtful biography, bestselling author Lyle Dorsett traces Tozer's life from his humble beginnings as a Pennsylvania farm boy to his heyday as a Chicago pastor--when hundreds of college students would travel to his South Side church to hear him preach and thousands more heard his Sunday broadcasts on WMBI. Eventually, he came to his final pastorate in Toronto.

From his conversion as a teen to his death in 1963, Tozer remained true to one passion: to know the Father and make Him known, no matter what the cost. The price he paid was loneliness, censure from other, more secular-minded ministers of the times, and even a degree of estrangement from his family. Read the life story of a flawed but gifted saint, whose works are still impacting the world today.

Shocked
I have always had a great admiration for A. W. Tozer and his writings. But I am deeply disappointed by the way he treated his family. How could you be so deeply involved with the Holy Spirit and his presence and listening to his voice and totally miss how we were told to love our families! I am definitely weighing the picture I have of his message in light of this finding. I understand we all have our faults and that God’s grace is a measurable and his forgiveness is always available but this biography makes it sound like Tozer Had total lack of what God’s Word says in regards to his wife and family.
