    For not having graduated from any seminary and being taught by t

    For not having graduated from any seminary and being taught by the Holy Spirit with the Bible open in front of him, A.W. Tozer has been called a prophet by many people. It is this humble education and willing spirit that has allowed Tozer to call the church to rise above being ordinary to become the transformative force it can be.

    In this short tome, Tozer outlines not only the dangers facing the evangelical church, but also the challenges facing it. Not being content with just identifying a problem, Tozer goes on to show the way to overcoming spiritual lethargy in the church. Though a multitude of examples, he tries to exhort the church to look to God only and not settle for something less.

    The words coming from his pen are not harsh or condescending, but born of a spirit in tune with God and heartbroken at the prospect of seeing the church washed up on the shores of irrelevance. He decries "observers" and "spectators" of current churches and calls them to be active members of worship. He even raises the bar include "anticipatory" prayer - praying before the Lord in advance of any situations that may arise. He cites the example of Jesus in the Garden, praying in advance of his torture and crucifixion for the strength and energy to carry out His Father's will. He is not content with ritual; he even suggests reading your Bible at breaks or lunch and praying where you can so that you can stay connected with God. In this, Tozer provides practical advice that makes being a more relevant Christian into a series of easy to achieve steps rather than climbing of a mountain.

    BOTTOM LINE: If you feel your spiritual life has plateaued or if you desire more from your Christian walk, this is the book for you.
