Summary

"Worship is man's full reason for existence. Worship is why we are born and why we are born again." (A. W. Tozer)

A. W. Tozer earned a legendary reputation as a prophetic voice, and he continues to be a best-selling author half a century after his death. A preacher at heart, he found his greatest joy in practicing the presence of God. Worship was his focus and his passion. His sermons were such strong declarations of what he discovered during private prayer and worship of the triune God that he had both the ability and the Spirit's anointing to move his listeners to wrestle with what God was saying to the church. His writings carry the same message, with the same result, to a new generation of worshippers.

The Purpose of Man is the perfect introduction to Tozer. Drawn from messages he called his best teaching, this audiobook will also delight those already familiar with, moved by, and changed by his other classics. What Tozer offers on the subject of worship here in The Purpose of Man will challenge you to reconsider your life's priorities while at the same time holding out a cup of living water for your soul.

Great book!

This is a short treatise on the essential nature of man and what it means to worship. To sum it up:

The nature of man is that we were made to worship God, but that we have become broken, forgotten God, and so direct our worship anywhere else we can.

What it means to worship God is to wait on Him in patient expectation and search out the truths of His word, until the presence of God through the Holy Spirit produces in us the overflow of gratitude, adoration, and love for God that is the Hallmark of a redeemed heart. And then walk in that state daily.

There is much to be gleaned from this book. It is simple, yet very profound, and well worth the investment of time and money.

so much new insight - what a blessing!

I listen to this all-in- one shot! The narration is excellent and engaging. Tozer is able to take the most everyday situations and help you understand how to avoid the dreadful situation if Jesus came back and said he didn't know you. I am so inspired and excited for everything that I have learned and I know I'm going to have to listen to it again because it is more information in 4 hours than I have received in 40 years sitting in the church pew. His description of how to be filled with the Holy Spirit is so profound and has given me so much peace. Don't hesitate to listen to this book!

Worship With All Your Heart!

Tozer hits the nail on the head every time I read his works. This one is a little different because after almost every chapter, Tozer says a prayer for the Church. I've never seen that in a book before, making this one of the most unique books I've ever read.
