Although never considered to be a popular speaker nor prolific writer, A. W. Tozer’s audiences did appreciate what he had to say, and he was probably the most widely read Christian writer of his time. Keys to the Deeper Life contains six of his best-known essays and editorials. In them he rigorously examines many of the failings and foibles of his day. Although most were written more than three decades ago, the insights they offer are as fresh and thought-provoking as the day they were published.
It’s a good thing this book is short, because I think I’m going to have to read it several more times. Once again, a book that Tozer wrote decades ago still finds relevancy today. He doesn’t just point fingers at the problems though; he also explains how to fix the problems and work through the issues.
I don’t believe this book is for new Christians or those looking for answers. This book speaks more to those Christians who know there’s more/want more but don’t know how to get it. It’s definitely challenged me, and I’m looking forward to working through those challenges.
