Item description for Born After Midnight (Not Available-Out Of Print) by A. W. Tozer...
Overview Often quoted by Chuck Swindoll, Charles Stanley, Billy Graham and other great preachers, A.W. Tozer's words are being heard and read by millions today-words like: Always and always God must be first. The gospel in its scriptural context puts the glory of God first and the salvation of man second....Anything that begins anywhere else, whatever it is, is certainly not New Testament Christianity. Chapter 4, The Key to Human Life Is Theological. The influence of the erotic spirit is felt almost everywhere in evangelical circles. Much of the singing in certain types of meetings has in it more of romance than it has of the Holy Ghost....Christ is courted with a familiarity that reveals a total ignorance of who He is. It is not the reverent intimacy of the adoring saint but the impudent familiarity of the carnal lover. Chapter 8, the Erotic vs. The Spiritual. God will allow His servant to succeed when he has learned that success does not make him dearer to God nor more valuable in the total scheme of things. Chapter 13, Faith Dares to Fail. The chapters of this book were originally published as editorials in Alliance Life magazine. These incisive columns now make provocative reading.
In A.W. Tozer's compilation of writings on true revivals is what the book "Born After Midnight" is all about. Tozer is arguing that the premise of spiritual gifts and graces come only to those who want them badly enough to wait for them; to those who are willing to pray late into the night, unto that last hour of darkness, just before the coming dawn shimmers on the horizon is a service and honor. These graces come to those who genuinely yearn for God. "Born After Midnight" comes to those who speak to god on behalf of men and speak to men in the name of God. Tozer takes us on another journey of faith that is one that will have you re-evaluating your attitude toward life and toward the Lord, inspiring and enabling you to take up your cross and follow the Lamb. Tozer lays many of his philosophical cornerstones in "Born After Midnight," as he describes who God is and what it is that makes Him that way. Will revival come again after reading this book, maybe, maybe not, but your prayer life and view of God will change forever. This book brings a revivalist attitude of enthusiasm to the everyday journey of faith. A.W. Tozer urges the believer to "sanctify the ordinary," making every act of life a simple and glorifying offering to God. The book examines the qualities of God and His desires and expectations of man. Each chapter will renew your insight into the depth of your faith, prompting an attitude of worshipful resignation toward God s will.

Reviews - What do customers think about Born After Midnight (Not Available-Out Of Print)?
Short, Pleasant, Current, Practical Jan 31, 2009
I'd always heard the name A.W. Tozer - good things of course. To keep with that tradition, I also have some good things to say about this book, Born After Midnight. My initial impression was that the book had a strange title. The first chapter tried to explain it but it was lost on me. Another thing I noticed when reading the first chapter was that it was very short. Shortly after that, I noticed that every chapter was very short - about four pages. This, and the fact that it was so captivating, made the read very short and pleasant.
Tozer basically just starts a new topic each chapter, addressing topics of lukewarmness, of doctrine, of spiritual growth, covering a very broad range of topics it would be hard to pinpoint any sort of theme on this book other than simply - the Christian life. The edition I have says 1959, I'm not sure if that was when it was written or just when this copy was published, but the book feels surprisingly current for such a date. Most if not all of the problems he addresses are still problems today, and all of the solutions he gives are all still very practical. The way the book is written invites you to think deep, although it's not that deep of a book all on its own. It's not written with an extensive vocabulary or concepts that only the highly educated can grasp, yet it's not watered down or simple either. I found myself evaluating things in my own life within the first ten minutes of sitting down to read it in ways I'm not in the habit of normally thinking about things, and found myself wanting to just keep reading further.
Overall, I can see this book being very beneficial to both new Christians and those who have been walking in the faith for a long time. It's one of the best I've read in quite a while and really makes me excited to look into other books by Tozer.
Lessons in True Spiritual Revival Jul 17, 2004
This is certainly one of Tozer's best works. It always seems that the collections edited by Tozer himself stand head and shoulders above those compiled posthumously. The full title of this work is "True Revivals are Born After Midnight: Spiritual Renewal Comes to Those Who Want it Badly Enough." It is 142 pages in length and contains 34 editorials and a brief preface by A.W. Tozer. The articles focus on the topic of spiritual revival and include both theological and practical exhortations toward this end. In his characteristic manner, Tozer cuts to the heart of the matter--exposing the unspiritual and ungodly practices that have led to widespread spiritual stasis and religious boredom.
