This is a compilation of works and messages by Tozer printed by Christian Publications in 1997. The editors call this side of Tozer a “cherry bomb” when applied to today’s church, and I agree. Nevertheless, they say, Tozer needs to “have his say,” and I agree. “It is scarcely possible in most places,” says Tozer, ” to get anyone to attend a meeting where the only attraction is God.” And that was written forty years ago!
No doubt the most controversial portion of the book is the final essay, “The Menace of the Religious Movie,” which is not just Tozer’s argument against theaters, but his argument against Christian acting and drama altogether. His seven arguments are very interesting. No doubt they will not be received today without some bias. RCS
