Publishers Description
The one great obsession of A. W. Tozer's life was worship. Many have written about worship, but Tozer surpassed them all in simple passion and supreme purpose. Compiled from material never before published, this book presents Tozer's systematic teaching on worship, the subject close to his heart. One of the first in evangelical circles to call attention to the doctrine of worship, Tozer knew worship as the purpose of man and the expectation of God. His thoughts on this subject were deeply rooted in biblical doctrine and historic writings, blending Scripture with some of the great devotional writers throughout history. Like sitting down with Tozer, The Purpose of Man delivers the soul cry of Tozer on worship and will inspire readers to not only understand worship, but also experience it in his or her own heart. "This will be the best teaching in my ministry. I want to deliver my soul as a prophet of God to the people, and to explain why we were created and why we are here, not to the satisfaction of the needed appetite only but to something bigger, grander and more eternal, that we might worship God and enjoy Him forever." A. W. Tozer

Tozer Revisited  Apr 14, 2010
A.W. Tozer (1897-1963), the longtime Christian and Missionary Alliance pastor, speaker, and magazine editor, is probably best known for two of his many books, The Pursuit of God and The Knowledge of the Holy. Now Pastor and Tozer biographer James Snyder has put together in book form a never-before-published series of his messages on the nature of life.

The Purpose of Man is easily recognized as classic Tozer--a to-the-point, unvarnished description of man's created purpose, his fall from it, and his need to put aside distractions and return to it. As with all his best works, the most distinctive feature of this book is an unwavering focus on the Lord and His relationship to us.

Over 14 chapters, Tozer paints a picture of mankind created in God's image to uniquely reflect His glory and worship Him who has fallen in sin and forgotten that purpose. He points out that we have an enemy whose goal is to keep us from our purpose and calls believers to actively rediscover the mystery and majesty of true worship. He builds a mature definition of the Church as a "company of worshippers" and defines religion and ritual as the antithesis of worship. Worship is, he ultimately concludes, the fullest expression of our direct relationship to God with the person of Jesus Christ as its focal point.

For both Tozer fans and the uninitiated, The Purpose of Man is an engaging read put together in a straightforward, personable style that the Spirit has used (and will continue to use) mightily to change hearts and build God's kingdom. The issues raised and exposited here are perhaps more relevant today than when they were first addressed--the Church suffers from an acute lack of true worship, and Tozer's voice from the past offers solid, scriptural solutions to our ongoing spiritual problems.
The Father's Plan  Apr 6, 2010
WOW! I can't imagine what would come from the pen of this great servant of God on the present condition of much of what is passed off as the church's message of seeker friendly, entertainment driven, let's not offend, upset, scare off, or call to repentance with clarity the message of The Kingdom which Christ preached.
A MUST READ for every minister of the Gospel. The reason we exist is not to deliver great sermons, produce good music, build buildings, community outreach and social work, nor primarly to do evangelism: WORSHIP that is acceptable to God on His terms first, then the (works) we do become acceptable and are not wood, hay and stuble...May HIS Glory return thru WORSHIP that honors HIM ~ Read and Re-Read..
The Purpose of Man  Feb 23, 2010
Really good insight on worship and your purpose. Many people and churches are not worshiping to please God but to please themselves. This book will give you an eternal purpose on worshiping God as designed by God our Father.
Purpose of Man  Feb 15, 2010
Watch Video Here: http://www.this site/review/R23IXYRYS5YT1L The very passion of Tozer's life was worship. Nothing so occupied his life even to the extend of sacrificing time with family and friends. His walk with God was his life.
I'm sorry it took me so long to discover Tozer!  Dec 8, 2009
All I can say is, "Wow!" For quite a while now, I have felt that the church of God has lost its original purpose and that we are searching in all the wrong places for God's approval. We are so caught up in programs and entertainment that we are not functioning as God wants us to function. I was never able to put into words what I felt, but this book changed all of that. In my case, I'm a musician. I never really felt I had a problem with my music philosophy until I read this book. Having reading this book, my attitude has changed forever. In this book, Tozer gives clear, Bible-based requirements for worship. These are not ideas that he has formulated himself; they are ideas that come directly from the Word of God. I came out of the book realizing that music is not essential to worship; nor are many other things that churches often consider "essential" in a proper worship service. The idea of worship being a continuous state of mind is an ever-present thought throughout the book. Tozer's thought-the fact that so much of what our churches do "in the name of God" is worthless without worship-hit me very hard. This book is both inspiring in its push for a more simple and straightforward worship, and daunting as I think of the uphill battle that it is going to be trying to get churches steeped in tradition to change their ways. Regardless, this book is a must-have for any serious person seeking to get back to the basics of true Biblical worship.
