Publisher's Description

The one great obsession of A. W. Tozer’s life was worship. Many have written about worship, but Tozer surpassed them all in simple passion and supreme purpose. Compiled from material never before published, this book presents Tozer’s systematic teaching on worship, the subject close to his heart. One of the first in evangelical circles to call attention to the doctrine of worship, Tozer knew worship as the purpose of man and the expectation of God. His thoughts on this subject were deeply rooted in biblical doctrine and historic writings, blending Scripture with some of the great devotional writers throughout history. Like sitting down with Tozer, The Purpose of Man delivers the soul cry of Tozer on worship and will inspire readers to not only understand worship, but also experience it in his or her own heart. “This will be the best teaching in my ministry. I want to deliver my soul as a prophet of God to the people, and to explain why we were created and why we are here, not to the satisfaction of the needed appetite only but to something bigger, grander and more eternal, that we might worship God and enjoy Him forever.” A. W. Tozer

    Having read one of Tozer's other books and been thoroughly impressed, I had high expectations going into this book. Unfortunately, Tozer had a very unique view of worship, which was slightly off-putting and caused me to read this book with more of a discerning eye. One example, it states in the foreword that Tozer would often come to the dinner table and not say a word to his family because he was so in tune to focusing on and worshipping the Lord. It also states that he focused on his time with the Lord so much that he often neglected his family. How does that coincide with passages in Timothy and Titus about overseers and deacons being in charge over their family. Personally, and I think the Bible backs it up, a husband and a father has a responsibility to his family as his first "ministry" and act of worship. To neglect them is to be self-absorbed and disobedient to the Word of God.Don't get me wrong, there are a few valid points about focusing on and worshipping the Lord. However, many of Tozer's examples and illustrations of his points are belabored, exaggerated, and illegitimate. I purchased this book to go through with my significant other in hopes we would both be called to worship and focus on the Lord better, more strongly, and unlike the Ephesian church, "remember our first true Love". Unfortunately, this book was not useful in helping us focus in more on the glorious Lord that we love and serve!

    This is an excellent book. I have read Tozer before and he can be very deep. This book is very readable but profound in the way he describes our purpose as God's creation, which is to worship Him. I strongly suggest to anyone to get this book because it gets us down to our spiritual roots and is very encouraging to get our view of God focused right for a change. We live in a very self effacing society and Tozer's writing's are so passionate and easily draws into the right place to worship God as we were created.
