What It Takes to Be a Man of God Jul 20, 2004
Tozer cuts to the quick--plainly setting forth the biblical prerequisites to maturity in Christ. The bottom line is God's glory and our tendency to place His well-deserved praise upon human instruments or, worse yet, upon ourselves. The glorification of man/self and the refusal to acknowledge the destructive power of sin in the believer's life are exposed, examined and condemned through solid exegesis and piercing insight.

From Back Cover: "This is the day of the magnification of slick personalities, and as we magnify men we minimize God." (from chapter 3)
"The key to the right understanding of existence is theological. By that I mean that before we can understand anything rightly we have to begin with God.... It is God who gives meaning to everything." (from chapter 7)
"You let the devil's camel stick his dirty nose in your tent, and the whole hump will be in there by nine o'clock tonight." (from chapter 8)
We are to exalt God above all things and to live so that His glory is exalted above the heavens. This is the ladder by which you climb to the kingdom of power and the lever by which you move mountains." (from chapter 9)
