Overview In this revised and expanded collection of Tozer's most popular essays readers will discover the way to a vital, personal Christianity as they read commentary on revival, renewal, and much more.
Publishers Description Although never considered to be a popular speaker nor prolific writer, A. W. Tozer's audiences did appreciate what he had to say, and he was probably the most widely read Christian writer of his time. Keys to the Deeper Life contains six of his best-known essays and editorials. In them he rigorously examines many of the failings and foibles of his day. Although most were written more than three decades ago, the insights they offer are as fresh and thought-provoking as the day they were published. Robert Walker, the editor of Christian Life, and a long-time associate of Tozer, has written an Introduction to the book that delightfully captures Tozer's irascible genius. Keys to the Deeper Life also contains the account of an exclusive interview with A. W. Tozer shortly before his death.

The keys to the deeper life in Christ Jesus Jan 2, 2009
The veils are parted noted A.W Tozer. But sadly, many there are who are yet behind the rented veil not knowing how to enter! A.W Tozer however, underscores in "The keys to the deeper life" that without the keys of salvation,sanctification, and an all-consuming thirst for the supreme will of God,the deeper life will forever remain a theory and a myth to the aspiring individual. ---CHESTER DEH
A True Prophet of God Nov 23, 2006
I was truly amazed at the spiritual insight that Tozer displayed in his writing. I don't think he suffered fools gladly but his vision of an extremely erroneous present day church was absolutely profound. He is a Christian author who certainly made me stand back in awe at the man's God given insight into how heretical the present church of our Lord Jesus Christ has apostasised from that which was established in the book of Acts. Thank God for men like Tozer who can shock us out of our Evangelical stupor but not submerge us into the present heresy in the Charismatic/Pentecostal hype and nonsense. I would thoroughly recommend this book for anyone who is emerging from that stupor into the light and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
A call to Awake and be watchful Apr 12, 2006
Scripture teach us that as Christian we should be awake, watchful and praying att all times. How truth was our Lord when He described the condition of His Church at the end of times, a sleeping church, as sleeping virgins without oil on their lamps. This book is a call for the evangelical world, a cry to get back to the God of scripture, the Holy Spirit, not only textualism, but back to a Holy inspired word, the one who jumps to your kind everytime you read it. So many doctrine of demons have infiltrated the Church because of a sleeping body, so many pharisees, back to the law away from grace. Each line in this book gives conviction, scriptural conviction. We need more Tozers today!
Keys to the Deeper Life Feb 17, 2006
W Tozer, without exception is one of the finest bible expositors of the early 1900's. He saw what many earnest christians of every generation saw, that is that most christians fail to experience God in the fullest sense. Like many of the classic writers of his day, he endeavors to lead the christian into a deeper relationship with God. This book is one of his finest. Salvation is a free gift, but if one wants to walk with God, it will cost them much more than most are willing to give up. This book helps one find there place in that walk.
The high, clear call of the Spirit in a deadly quiet world. Jan 25, 2003
"I believe we are under positive spiritual obligation to pray effectively till the present veil is torn away and the face of God is seen again by believing men," Tozer writes.
There is an irony that A.W. Tozer is more prolific and widely-read today than when he was alive. How I wish I could sit at his elbow and ask him about today's events, the future of the church, the coming King...In some ways, he answers those questions in "Keys to the Deeper Life."
Smith Wigglesworth once referred to the gifts of salvation, baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the deeper life as "Good, better, best." I think Tozer would agree.
Never afraid to speak truth, the first chapter sets the tone for the enitre book: "Leaning into the wind". Just like him. Eschewing the hypocritical, the false glory found in man's praise, and the shallow life, Tozer puts the trumpet to his lips to issue a clear call of the Spirit, to engage God at a deeper level. He urges believers to "1.)surrender, 2.)ask, 3.) obey, and 4.)believe in order to recieve the fullness of God, the Holy Spirit.
In the chapter, "Touching Heaven in Prayer", Tozer writes: "What then shall we do? We must deny self, take up the cross and count ourselves expendable. We must cease to exercise the world's judgements and try to think God's thoughts after Him. We must rekon ourselves dead to gain and glory and allow ourselves to become inextricably invloved with the cross of Christ and the high honor of God."
Putting God first and ourselves dead last. What a concept. Sounds like Christ.
Tozer: A Man of God Sep 29, 2001
Although A. W. Tozer died during the 1960's, his books are as powerful as ever. He is the man of the hour. In this particular book he gave several major keys to the deeper life, and described what it really means to be spiritually dead. This book is worth reading!
