Summary

It used to be that Christians conceived of the world as a battleground. They believed in sin and the devil and hell as constituting one force and in God and righteousness and heaven constituting the other. How different it is today. People think of the world not as a battleground but as a playground.

In This World: Playground or Battleground?, Tozer calls us to see the real world of the spiritual realm that lies beyond the physical that so ensnares us. The audio is short and to the point, abrupt but full of vigor, profound, and downright relevant today. Take, for example, this excerpt from the first chapter: "People think of the world not as a battleground, but as a playground. We are not here to fight; we are here to frolic.... The 'worship' growing out of such a view itself has become a sort of sanctified nightclub without champagne."

Beware

It is always easy to be deceive by others if we are not guard, but it is hard to be on guard when we deceive ourself. This book helped to revel many of these pitfalls. So, alert and aware of them.
