Thou hast ordained me, Thy messenger to them that are stubborn of heart and hard of hearing.
When A. W. Tozer was a young preacher newly ordained into the ministry, he wrote a prayer that he published 30 years later under the title "The Prayer of a Minor Prophet." Fifty years after his death, Dr. Tozer's prophetic writings and sermons continue to deliver God's Word to His people. The test of a prophet is that his message transcends generations; even when he is gone, a prophet's message remains fresh and vital.
In Voice of a Prophet, a never-before-published collection of writings, Dr. Tozer examines the lives and ministries of such biblical prophets as Elijah, Elisha and John the Baptist. A prophet is uniquely called by God; he never volunteers for the job, but his prophetic role in ministry for today's Church is an utter necessity.

Thank you Mr Snyder. (sentence stands alone)
The book bolts out of the starting gate in the usual A.W. Tozer fashion and never lets you take a breath, an earthly breath that is. As far as a Godly breath goes, I feel like I have had mouth to mouth resuscitation from God Himself!
This book seems to be just about the prophet but is so much more than that it is about the Christian walk and how black and white the God is, wanting to have a personal relationship with US! This Audio Book had a special treat at the end-- recordings of A.W. Tozer preaching on the topics in the book. That was unexpected and inspiring.
I had a little trouble with Mr. Snyder doing the narration. It took me about a chapter to figure out what that was. It was my expectations from audio books. I expect that they will be read to me. Mr. Snyder did not read this book to me, he spoke is as a reverend would preach a sermon. It did not take anything away from the book at all, in fact it seemed that he actually has as much love for this message as Tozer did himself.
This bold collection of sermons stirs your heart from the passive Christian existence to a place of our passion and determination to follow the precepts of the word of God.
Mal 1:14 KJV But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen.
Talk to God if you want a review.
A.W.Tozer was a man so passionately driven to reveal the heart of Christ and draw all men into intimate fellowship with Him. Throughout Tozer's writings there is no truth more clearly echoed than the importance of knowing God experientially and living in humility and obedience before Him. This book is no exception. The Voice of a Prophet gets straight to the heart of what it means to be 'called of God' whether prophetically or otherwise. Tozer deals with the issues of 'character, submission, humility, faith, courage, obedience and an unrelenting desire to know God. 'The Voice of a Prophet' takes you through the scriptures to examine the lives of those called by God out of obscurity, to a life filled with challenge all for the glory of the One that called.
This book was like a mirror to the soul that revealed some of the fundamental issues and blessings in my own life, bringing clarity, conviction and confirmation whilst driving me to my knees before a holy God. Thank you so much Tozer and Synder,
