The Tozer Anthology

As reported in the Nov/Dec 2018 issue.


In this day when shimmering “personalities” carry on the Lord’s work after the methods of the entertainment world, it is refreshing to associate, for even a moment, in the pages of a book, with a sincere and humble man who keeps his own personality out of sight and places the emphasis on the inworking of God.



It is our belief that the evangelical movement will continue to drift further and further from the New Testament position until its leadership passes from the modem religious star to the self-effacing saint.



Until such men as these return again to spiritual leadership, we may expect a progressive deterioration in the quality of popular Christianity, until we reach the point where the grieved Holy Spirit withdraws like the shekinah glory from the temple and we are left like Jerusalem after the Crucifixion—God-deserted and alone.



Our only hope is that renewed spiritual pressure will be exerted increasingly by self-effacing and courageous men and women who desire nothing but the glory of God and the purity of the church. May God send us many of them. They are long overdue.
