A.W.Tozer was an American pastor, who lived at the beginning of the 20th century. His ministry was a sample for hundreds (if not even thousands) of Christians as it was marked by selflessness, intense prayers, endless belief in the power of God, devotion and frankness. It’s interesting, but Tozer’s work was focused on the spiritual life of people and holy lifestyle. For this very reason, people often considered the writer a “mystic”. The truth is, though, that Tozer was very devoted to serving God and he really wished to teach people to live like Jesus Christ. His most known book “The Pursuit of God” has changed the lives of thousands of Christians, filling them with sense. All in all, Tozer wrote over 40 books. The most notable works include “Paths to Power”, “Let My People Go”, “Born after Midnight”, “Wingspread”, “The Root of the Righteous”.
