Thou hast ordained me, Thy messenger to them that are stubborn of heart and hard of hearing.
When A. W. Tozer was a young preacher newly ordained into the ministry, he wrote a prayer that he published 30 years later under the title “The Prayer of a Minor Prophet.” Fifty years after his death, Dr. Tozer’s prophetic writings and sermons continue to deliver God’s Word to His people. The test of a prophet is that his message transcends generations; even when he is gone, a prophet’s message remains fresh and vital.
In Voice of a Prophet, a never-before-published collection of writings, Dr. Tozer examines the lives and ministries of such biblical prophets as Elijah, Elisha and John the Baptist. A prophet is uniquely called by God; he never volunteers for the job, but his prophetic role in ministry for today’s Church is an utter necessity.
