Just as in our day, people under the teaching ministry of A.W. Tozer wondered about the end times. How should we read the book of Revelation? What does it mean for how believers live? In this never-before-published book, today's Christians can learn from one of the twentieth-century church's most profound thinkers and pastors. Tozer's teaching on Revelation offers a fresh and timely perspective on the purpose of prophecy, which the renowned writer believed was to lift our gaze from the immediate to the eternal. Preparing for Jesus' Return offers readers a panoramic view of what is to come and explores what it means for individuals, churches, and the world.
A.W. Tozer embarked upon a lifelong pursuit of God at the age of 17 after hearing a street preacher in Akron, Ohio. He was a self-taught pastor, writer, and editor whose powerful messages continue to grip the hearts and stir the souls of today's believers. He penned more than 45 books, including the classics The Pursuit of God, The Knowledge of the Holy, and The Purpose of Man.
