“We have done nothing until we have left the world and set our faces toward the city of God in hard, practical reality.” —A. W. Tozer
Readers love Tozer the way we love friends who tell the hard truth. The truth is often bitter, but if we are wise we will drink it down, and we’ll be thankful we did. In Culture, A. W. Tozer tells it how it is: to follow Christ toward heaven is to invite trouble in this world.
Within these pages are reflections on the true nature of the church, the cost of following Jesus, and the blessed hope of the heaven-bound.
Read Culture to be made sober, determined, and bold in a world that would rather you quietly blend in.
This is my first A.W. Tozer book to read, and I wasn’t sure what to expect.
I knew he was considered a “classic” Christian author, but I had no idea how difficult and mature his writing style was!
I started this book very, VERY excited, and ended…Well, relieved. Hahah! It was good, but hurt my head to read his proper style.
Tozer discusses those culturally controversial topics that most people avoid, and while he’s very bold about his convictions, he’s Christ-like about it and doesn’t shove it in your face.
I enjoyed reading his perspective of the modern-day culture, and was constantly wondering how he’d react to 2016! After all, he died in the 60’s; MUCH different from now.
If you want a challenging, convicting book for 2017, one that will make you reconsider your habits and highly motivates you, check this book out!
