What does it mean to be "crucified with Christ"? During his lifetime, renowned teacher A. W. Tozer was often invited to speak at seminaries, churches and Bible conferences on the topic of the cross and its meaning for the Christian life. Now, in this never-before-published distillation of his best teaching on the subject, you will gain a fresh understanding of the cross’s centrality to your walk of faith in Christ. The apostle Paul declared in his letter to the Galatians that he had been “crucified with Christ.” But what does this mean? Is this a claim every believer can and should make?
The Crucified Life is a comprehensive examination of these questions, answered with the deep, biblical thinking for which Tozer was revered. “God is ingenious in developing crosses for His followers,” Tozer was fond of saying. At the heart of this audiobook, you will find a call to follow Christ to the cross and be raised to new life - a call to live the crucified life. Includes authentic audio clips of A.W. Tozer speaking after each chapter.

is that, like Bonhoeffer, he took what he did very seriously and wrote passionately about the Christian life, not as a "presto-chango-once-saved-always-saved-say-the-magic-words-and-win-heaven" affair, but rather as an ongoing struggle toward goodness and rightness and justice--in short, a living of life in such a fashion that goodness was wrought in the physical world, in which the self and ego were sacrificed for simplicity and charity toward all people, in which others were thought of before oneself, and God, eternal rightness and goodness, above all. It is a message that forever needs to be heard and heeded if the true Christian life is to live on at all.
Tozer is worth his weight in gold because he follows the Bible accurately. This book coaches Christians on obtaining a deeper Christianity, and explains how to achieve the real Christian life. In my opinion, "The Crucified Life" is of value not only for beginners, but also for intermediate Christians who are not progressing, or are off-track. It is also of value for Church leaders to use to re-evaluate what is important.
This is my first listen to Tozer and Lundeen. The narrator is very good. This audio book is easy to follow and understand.
I highly recommend "The Crucified Life". I also recommend the Puritans (such as Paul Bunyan, John Flavel, Jonathan Edwards, John Owen, Thomas Watson, and William Gurnall), D.L. Moody, Charles Spurgeon, E.M. Bounds, Andrew Murray, Jim Cymbala, and Henry Blackaby. The writings of the Christian Saints are also valuable.
I have listened to about 24 audio books in the past year and this is by far the best of all of them. Very well done and a series of powerful points that will humble any Christian. You need to be free of all distractions and willing to listen to what is being said without becoming defensive as you listen. All Christians should want to read this book. I have listened to the book twice and plan do listen again and again and again until I really get all of the points.
This books is great! Provokes one to think beyond complacency and to further seeking to know God. The only challenge is the clips of Tozer at the end of each chapter. The quality of the audio book is good but the quality of those clips is not good and they can't be understood. It almost becomes distracting at the end of each chapter. Otherwise it's great! I love Tozer!
It was very encouraging
It is very direct and enlightening
I purchased my books to listen to while I drive and I am sure I will listen to this one many times.
Thank you for the clarity, even when the roads are rough I can still hear the words
I will listen to " The Crucified many more times, but my disabilities prevent me from continuing this review for now
The Perseut of Godliness same author
Music to my ears. This book has confirmed almost everything I have known. I recommend this to any believer who is prepared for self-examination. Highly commendable, no words can do justice, or describe how reassured. I feel after listening.
To-day when everything is being diluted, is good to have the Christian life in its purist form, like manna for the soul an excellent book
