God Tells the Man Who Cares: God Speaks to Those Who Take Time to Listen

"God has nothing to say to the frivolous man." — A. W. Tozer

Tozer states this bluntly in the book's beginning, and he carries the sentiment through the last chapter.

In God Tells the Man Who Cares, Tozer urges the believer to be vigilant in his pursuit of God's voice in his life. He reminds us that stillness and meditation on the Spirit of God may be more spiritually profitable than the front of religion that is so prevalent in modern society. Stillness is the quality that is so often lost in the business of today's world. To be still and know that He is God is an old truth that is much quoted but rarely lived.

Tozer's convicting voice will bring you to a new and humbling place in your relationship with the Lord. He invites you to lay your emotions at God’s feet, provides insight into the true nature of a servant's heart, and decries many aspects of institutionalized Christianity, warning against artificial religion with these words: “[It] is a disease of the soul, and can only be healed by the Physician of souls."
