A. W. Tozer (1897–1963) grew up poor without the opportunity to complete high school. While working in a tire factory he heard the good news about Jesus, repented, and believed. At nineteen, he began to preach, becoming one of the most influential pastors in his generation. His books, The Pursuit of God
and The Knowledge of the Holy
have helped millions know and love the Triune God revealed in Scripture.
When asked how he learned to read Scripture with such clarity and theological depth, Pastor Tozer would often point to his “friends” and “teachers.” These teachers were a list of some thirty-five Christian spiritual classics Tozer read and reread throughout his life. Sacred Roots Spiritual Classics are for those with a desire to be used like Pastor Tozer.
Sacred Roots envisions ten thousand Christian leaders serving in challenging ministry contexts across North America, engaging with spiritual classics in community by the year 2030. Will you join this growing community as we pursue God together by reading and discussing spiritual classics with gospel friends and kingdom coworkers (Matt 9:35)?
