Overview

The word "faith" is common, but placing our faith in God is an uncommonly weighty decision fraught with consequences and, by His design, inconvenience. Faith in God is consoling only so far as we trust Him-and unshakable trust is the mark of mature Christians who have allowed faith to intrude on their lives and shift their gaze away from their own aims, needs and desires. This is a life-disrupting, comfort-disturbing and even painful process.

A Disruptive Faith is A. W. Tozer's never-before-published teaching on what he called "faith that perturbs"-that is, faith that contradicts the unbelieving man and threatens the complacency of the Christian. In these pages, the renowned pastor and theologian shows how genuine faith, by God's design, breeds dissatisfaction with this life, weaning Christians from dependence on earthly things in order to prepare them for the glorious and everlasting life to come. In this way, each of us should be encouraged to deepen our faith to the point of holy discontentment-and experience the fresh hope for eternity with Almighty God!
