A Little Tozer for Your Thursday

A brother in the church just sent me this one from A.W. Tozer:

"The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian."

Not sure where it's from. Anybody out there got a specific reference?

I can give you a general reference. I have a Tozer quote book that attributes that to his book titled "Of God and Men," but it doesn't give me a page number.

I have a copy of "The Tozer Pulpit: Selected Quotations from the Sermons of A.W. Tozer."

I gave it a quick scan and I didn't see this quote. It's all over the internet, but nobody ever references it.

To paraphrase what someone else said about someone else, when Tozer was good he was very good, when he was bad, he was very bad.

This is one point where he was very good.

I searched through my Tozer online library. As Casey has said, it's in the last paragraph of Chapter 18 - 'Spiritual Symmetry is God's Will for Us', of the book "Of God and Men".
