For it is not mere words that nourish the soul, but God Himself, and unless and until the hearers find God in personal experience they are not the better for having heard the truth.

The Bible is not an end in itself, but a means to bring men to an intimate and satisfying knowledge of God, that they may enter into Him, that they may delight in His Presence, may taste and know the inner sweetness of the very God Himself in the core and center of their hearts.

– A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

  1. I have reading some Karl Barth lately and he hits upon that theme repeatedly…or should I say Barth sounds like Tozer!

  2. Christiane says:

    Catholics regard Tozer as an ‘evangelical saint’. His life was lived without materially benefitting from his work for Christ, which is a most remarkable accomplishment:

    This from ‘wiki':
    “Living a simple and non-materialistic lifestyle, he and his wife, Ada Cecelia Pfautz, never owned a car, preferring bus and train travel.
    Even after becoming a well-known Christian author, Tozer signed away much of his royalties to those who were in need.”
