Publisher's Summary

The best of A. W. Tozer, on one of his favorite subjects.

Few subjects invigorated A. W. Tozer like the topic of worship. He saw it - like the church has traditionally - as the sole reason for which creation exists. Worship: The Reason We Were Created features collections from the beloved spiritual writer on this important topic. The church's current worship is emaciated; its thoughts of God are too low. Here is a compilation to raise those thoughts high once more, and provoke the church to true, spiritual worship. Topics include:

  • The act and object of worship
  • The presence of God
  • Worship throughout the week
  • Feelings and emotion in worship
  • Man as a worshipping creature

If it's true that we are made to worship God, that it is the sole reason that we exist, that we are most alive when we live for His glory, then listening to Worship is more than time well spent. It is time invested in the very foundation of your life.

This book causes one to evaluate worship in their lives. A. W. Tozer doesn't mince words as usual.

This is the book for a time such as these!

I love this book. I purchased it because I am a worshiper and want to focus on worshiping alone and in the world in service to others.

We “who call ourselves Christians” have such a limited view of our purpose; and that is to glorify God in all we say and do! Read this book. Take it to heart! Shift your focus to the Lord God Almighty.

Excellent content - PERFECT narration!

Awesome book, straight to the point - no chasers. Tozer’s explanation, teaching, insight, and experience on worship is refreshing, inspiring, and convicting. I stopped the audio quite a few times to let some points and questions sink in - points that will stay with me in prayer and worship for the long haul of my walk with the Lord.

His insight and teaching is rooted in the kind of Biblical truth that can only come from someone who fears, loves, and walks with the Lord and Christ Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit. What Tozer gives in this book, no seminary, formal academic training, or fancy tutelage under some “great” theologian could ever offer. Tozer gives fresh and authoritative insight to what worship REALLY is and means, and the reality of who God REALLY is as it relates to our worship. His teaching is no carbon copy of religious writing littered with subtle notes of personal denominational affiliation that are sprinkled in the undertones of his conclusions and perspectives. Instead, he unapologetically highlights the true causes for lack of worship - the kind people may not like to hear - in both the church as a whole and individual Christians. Tozer tells you what really thinks, no flowery “religious correctness.” How perfect and rare. You will be challenged, and you will be thankful for it!

I have read so many books by our greatest theologians, from centuries ago, to decades ago - and from all over the world. But Tozer’s book is a first in its sharp, not menacing, but indescribably refreshing points around accountability and the obstacles to true worship. This book was an absolute, spiritual treat! His illustrations are crisp, simple but powerful, and gloriously authentic.

I’m not sure, however, that I would have been able to capture the full, authentic essence of this book without the perfect matching of the narrator. No one else could have narrated this book and it still have the same effect - delivery of the fullness and transparency of his written words to the listener/reader. The narrator is so perfect, I’m not sure I’ll be able to listen to any other me audio book by Tozer if he is not doing the narration! I’ll have to order the book and just read it.

Any-who, if you made it this far in the review, let me conclude by stating the obvious: it is a must read for beginning and mature Christians! I will have to both listen again and order the book!

Not as good as I thought it would be.

These pieces of work are similar to "The Attributes Of God" series. I think the reader/listener will get more out of The Attributes Of God.
