Teachings from First Peter: Many
modern Christians are familiar with the name, and perhaps even some of the
writings of, A. W. Tozer, but few living today were blessed to sit under
his weekly teaching from the pulpit. In this never-before published collection
of teachings on 1 Peter, adapted from sermons given to his parishioners,
Tozer examines what it means to call oneself a Christian. In his view, to
be a recipient of God’s salvation is to become "the pride of all heaven,"
indestructible and able to withstand anything and everything that seeks to
undermine one’s faith. The epistle of 1 Peter was written to a group of just
such Christians, to encourage them to live in the center of God’s redeeming
love. Through Tozer’s incomparable teaching and commentary, this ancient letter
becomes a fresh and life-infusing admonition for today’s Christian! A.W.

in Akron, Ohio. He was a self-taught pastor, writer and
editor whose powerful messages continue to grip the hearts and stir the souls
of today’s believers.
