"Dr. A. W. Tozer, without question, had an 'anointing' for this generation. As an articulate preacher and perspicuous writer, he assumed the role of a reverent forecaster. His so accurate description of unseemly religious and moral conditions and where they were leading the church are black facts that make one wonder about the 'religion' of the evangelical church of our day." — Dr. L. L. King, from the foreword

The Price of Neglect, a collection of editorials written while Dr. Tozer was the editor of Alliance Life, contains one of Tozer’s most consistent messages: Do not neglect the spiritual life, for you cannot afford to.

Tozer warns against rising secularism, which is characterized by a muting or outright compromise of biblical truths, carnal worship, and lifestyles practically identical with that of the world. With a prophetic voice in articulate writing, he pens chapters like:

  • The Price of Neglect
  • Lyric Theology
  • Personal Holiness Is a First
  • Prayer Changes People—And Things
  • The Value of a Good Home
  • On Omitting the Third Stanza

Heed Tozer’s warning in The Price of Neglect, and give your spiritual life the attention it demands.

About the author (2010)

A. W. Tozer (1897–1963) began his lifelong pursuit of God after hearing a street preacher in Akron, Ohio, at the age of seventeen. The self-taught theologian committed his life to the ministry of God’s Word as a pastor, teacher, and writer. For his flowing prose, Spirit-filled words, and deep conviction, many have called him a modern-day prophet. He is the author of the beloved classic The Pursuit of God and dozens of other works.
