Item Description...
These 48 provocative chapters, compiled by Tozer himself, "are in no sense quiet religious essays." They address earthbound living while keeping heaven in view. A best-seller.

Publishers Description

In the opening chapter of "The Root of the Righteous" A.W. Tozer writes, "Christians should be both as a tree well rooted and as a temple to rise on a solid foundation." Without a sound root, there is no lasting life, he explains as he challenges the reader to focus not on the fruit, but on the deep roots from which the fruit comes. In this thought-provoking classic, Tozer examines how we can make sure we are "among the righteous," rooted and built up in Christ. A. W. Tozer asks the reader to spend time with God, understand God's love, select wise counselors, prepare ourselves to hear the word of God and accept criticism. All this while fearing God, but being concerned about the dangers of contentment and examining our motives. Tozer also addresses the factors of keeping Christ at the center of our worship, spiritual discernment, voluntary suffering and many more topics.
The whole book is centered on the passage in Colossians 2:6-7. A.W. Tozer says these writings were written over the course of five years in the midst of life, not in a quiet religious setting, all the while with heaven in full view never too far removed from the rough world where children of God struggle and work and pray. These were all originally written in the Alliance Life.

Community Description
These 48 provocative chapters "are in no sense quiet religious essays. They were born in the midst of life; and while they have, as I hope, heaven in full view, they are never too far removed from the rough world where the children of God struggle and work and pray". -- A.W. Tozer. One of Tozer's best-selling titles.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Root of the Righteous  Dec 26, 2007
Very challenging book for the church today! He talks about issues that are very convicting and challenging to lukewarm Christians.
An Island of Truth in a Sea of Schlock Christianity  Sep 8, 2005
This book is classic Tozer, and one of his best!

As a very orthodox in worship Presbyterian, I particularly like the way Tozer comments on how "The Great God Entertainment" has infiltrated our churches and has taken hold on "the retarded saints of today". Yet this book was written in 1955!

Tozer is an island of Truth in today's wishy-washy sea of dumbed down, "smiley face" Modern Evangelicalism and the Church Growth Movement. It's too bad American Protestantism hasn't heeded Tozer's warning.
The Best Collection of Tozer Editorials Available  Jul 7, 2004
It's a shame that this book does not have more information provided by this site. I have read some thirty of Tozer's books and The Root of the Righteous is far and above the best of his editorial writings. While certain other collections better focus on a particular subject, for sheer passion, power and insight this book is unsurpassed. There was a time when I even considered it Tozer's best work (even ahead of The Pursuit of God)! I would highly recommend it to anyone--particularly if you are a fan of Tozer's writing because of its force and intensity.

The Root of the Righteous is 185 pages long, including 46 editorials and a preface by A.W. Tozer.

From the Back Cover:
"No man has any right to offer advice who has not first heard God speak. No man has any right to counsel others who is not ready to hear and follow the sound counsel of the Lord." (From Chapter 4)

"The idea that God will pardon a rebel who has not given up his rebellion is contrary both to the Scriptures and to common sense. How horrible to contemplate a church full of persons who have been pardoned but who still love sin and hate the ways of righteousness." (From Chapter 11)

"To pray effectively it is required of us that there be no unblessed areas in our lives, no parts of the mind or soul that are not inhabited by the Spirit, no impure desires allowed to live within us, no disparity between our prayers and our conduct." (From Chapter 24)

Another Treasury of Tozer Teachings  Oct 19, 2003
Tozer speaks the truth of God plainly, simply, and powerfully. This book is a delight of bite-sized teachings by the master.
Tozer's deep love for God saturates each sentence. "[God] is all love, and those who trust Him need never know anything but that love." and "[God] is not hard to please, though He may be hard to satisfy."

But Tozer is no softy...he challenges, exhorts, and convicts skillfully using the sword of the Spirit. "Many a solo is sung to show off; many a sermon is preached as an exhibition of talent; many a church is founded as a slap at ome other church." and "Lacking love, prophets, teachers, orators, philanthropists and martyrs are sent away without reward."

Thanks, Tozer. I needed all the observations that you have leanred and written.

An excellent compilation of short essays!  Apr 22, 2000
This book has several short essays on Christian life, most of which impressed deeply upon me - Tozer's exhortations drive you deeper into relationship with God and are immensely encouraging and challenging at the same time.
