"The way of the cross is still the pain - wracked path to spiritual power and fruitfulness..."
So do not seek to hide from it. Do not accept an easy way. Do not allow yourself to be patted to sleep in comfortable church, void of power and barren of fruit. Do not paint the cross nor deck it with flowers. Take it for what it is, as it is, and you will find the rugged way to death and life."Let it slay you utterly." - from the essay "coddled or crucified"
In this collection of short essays, Tozer considers with piercing conviction the power and offence of the cross. May you venture into this book unguarded, that you might be utterly changed.
A.W. Tozer (1897-1963) began his lifelong pursuit of God after hearing a street preacher in Akron,Ohio, at the age of seventeen. The self-taught theologian committed his life to the ministry of God's word as a pastor, teacher, and writer. For his flowing prose, Spirit-filled words, and deep conviction, many have called him a modern-day prophet. He is the author of the beloved classic 'The pursuit of God' and dozens of other works.
