During his lifetime, renowned teacher A.W. Tozer was often invited to speak at seminaries, churches, and Bible conferences on the topic of the cross and its meaning for the Christian life. Now, in this never-before-published distillation of his best teaching on the subject, you will gain a fresh understanding of the cross's centrality to your walk of faith in Christ.
The apostle Paul declared in his letter to the Galatians that he had been "crucified with Christ." But what does this mean? Is this a claim every believer can and should make? The Crucified Life is a comprehensive examination of these questions, answered with the deep, biblical thinking for which Tozer was revered. "God is ingenious in developing crosses for His followers," Tozer was fond of saying. At the heart of this book, you will find a call to follow Christ to the cross and be raised to new life--a call to live the crucified life.

This is a new book from Tozer. He has been dead for around 50 years so, obviously it is a compilation from his sermons. He does and excellent job of looking at the way the Christian is to live, making it practical and understandable. His own strong walk with God gives this so much credibility. Definitely worth the read.
I enjoyed reading this book. The premise is What does it mean to be “crucified with Christ”? In this book, I have definitely gained a fresh reminder of the cross’ centrality for my walk of faith in Jesus Christ. Tozer goes deep in helping us to understand Apostle Paul's letter to the Galatians & verse 2:20. I feel empowered by the words of encouragement and truth, reminded of what to do, how to act, how to adjust my attitude and truly let go and let God!
All Christians should be required to read this.Great book to the point and truthful even if it hurts.
