In the opening chapter of The Root of the Righteous A.W. Tozer writes, "Christians should be both as a tree well rooted and as a temple to rise on a solid foundation." Without a sound root, there is no lasting life, he explains as he challenges the reader to focus not on the fruit, but on the deep roots from which the fruit comes. In this thought-provoking classic, Tozer examines how we can make sure we are "among the righteous," rooted and built up in Christ. A. W. Tozer asks the reader to spend time with God, understand God's love, select wise counselors, prepare ourselves to hear the word of God and accept criticism. All this while fearing God, but being concerned about the dangers of contentment and examining our motives. Tozer also addresses the factors of keeping Christ at the center of our worship, spiritual discernment, voluntary suffering and many more topics.
The whole book is centered on the passage in Colossians 2:6-7. A.W. Tozer says these writings were written over the course of five years in the midst of life, not in a quiet religious setting, all the while with heaven in full view never too far removed from the rough world where children of God struggle and work and pray. These were all originally written in the Alliance Life.

BernieMiAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5June 23, 2008BernieMiAge: Over 65Gender: maleOne of the best of Tozers if one can really pick a best. Very convicting down to the smallest detail. I am struck by the depth of Tozer's wisdom. I wonder how did he gain so much. Why do I ask, because I am ever at the cross begging forgiveness and I cannot see that need in him. I know we are all sinners but what I have learned has been through my own stubborness.I see A.W.Tozer in the light of a Saint. I wish for just a slight bit of the humility he wore.
