About the Author
Aiden Wilson Tozer, born April 21, 1897 in La Jose, Pennsylvania (now Newburg) was an American Christian Pastor, preacher, author, magazine editor, and spiritual mentor. His ministerial career spanned 44 years and in that time he published more than 40 books that he authored while serving as a pastor in a number of churches. His conversion was as a teenager in Akron, Ohio. While on his way home from work at a tire company, he overheard a street preacher say: "If you don't know how to be saved... just call on God." Upon returning home, he climbed into the attic and heeded the preacher’s advice. Five years later, with no formal theological training, Tozer accepted an offer to pastor his first church. Going on to live a simple and non-materialistic lifestyle, he and his wife, Ada Cecelia Pfautz, never owned a car, preferring bus and train travel. Even after becoming a well-known Christian author, Tozer signed away much of his royalties to those who were in need. Tozer had seven children, six boys and one girl. At the time of his death in May of 1963, his body was buried in a cemetery in Akron, Ohio, with a simple epitaph marking his grave: "A. W. Tozer - A Man of God." Among the more than 40 books that he authored, at least two are regarded as Christian classics: THE PURSUIT OF GOD and THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HOLY. His books impress on the reader the possibility and necessity for a deeper relationship with God.
