Overview

The Size of the Soul is a compilation of principles on revival and spiritual growth by A.W. Tozer.  How can we ignore the will of God and still expect His guidance in our lives? The truth is that we cannot. Tozer warns the unbeliever who claims a faith in the Lord to examine his life and to seek out the hypocrisy in his ways. This book offers up a stark reminder that Christianity today is made up of too many words and not enough action. 

Tozer puts forth a theological pathway for the track of the ambitious evangelical Christian. He clarifies many of the doctrinal shortcomings that have clouded our churches and Sunday school classrooms over the years. Christ s sacrifice was once and for all, and as A. W. Tozer argues, it is our sin that keeps us from a fruitful relationship with God.  The Christian life is a journey, a growth that is to be attained over the course of a lifetime. Too often churchgoers grow older without growing holier. Tozer sums up his revivalist mentality: Let a man approach the burning bush of divine truth with the desire to grasp it in his hand and the intensity of the fire will blind his eyes and cauterize his hands and face to the point of insensibility. Before the awesome vision of revealed truth, the human intellect should kneel and hide its face in trembling adoration.
