The Zealous and Courageous Christian Jul 17, 2004
I bought this collection of Tozer's sermons because of an editorial in which he wrote "it is not the praying sheep Satan fears, but the presence of the Shepherd." That one statement demonstrated to me that A.W. Tozer had a profound understanding of the enemy of our souls and the One who has vanquished him. I have not been disappointed. This collection of 12 sermons focus on the courage and fighting-fervor of the Christian. Founded in Christ through faith, we are armed with great strength to engage in battle with that great adversary the Devil. Pressing forward into maturity in Christ is the main theme of the book. The chapter titles listed below will better illustrate the contents of the book than anything I could say. Suffice to say that this is one of my favorite of Tozer's works (and is included in my Top 10 favorite books).
Chapter Titles: 1. I Talk Back to the Devil! 2. Christianity--Fun and Games? 3. Always Slamming on the Brakes! 4. You Can't Be a Baby All Your Life! 5. Stopped Dead in Your Tracks? 6. Denominations Can Backslide, Too! 7. Dark, Dark Night of the Soul! 8. God Heard Elijah Because Elijah Heard God! 9. Don't Throw Your Head Away--You'll Need It! 10. Forget That They Told You to Shut Up! 11. Caution: Self-Will Will Scratch Your Back! 12. How Long Can You Slight the Christ of God?
From the Preface "I have never given more time and more pain and more prayer to any other series of sermons in my ministry. Because of their importance, I have literally felt Satan attempting to thwart the purpose of God. I have felt I was in raw contact with hell.... But, I will tell you something--it is a delightful thing when you know that you are close enough to the adversary that you can hear him roar! Too many Christians never get into 'lion country' at all!"
From the Back Cover: From Chapter 4 "God will speak to us if we read and study and obey the Word of God. But when He does speak, we should speak back to Him in prayer and devotion."
From Chapter 6 "Paul knew something that many Christians still have not learned--that the human heart is idolatrous and will worship anything it can possess... Whatever we refuse to surrender and count as loss we will ultimately worship."
From Chapter 8 "I earnestly believe that God is trying to raise up a company of Christians in our day who are willing to be completely seperated from all prejudices and all carnal desires."
May we be able to say with this great saint of the 20th century, "I talk back to the Devil."
