"Are you related to A.W. Tozer?"

A.W. Tozer

A.W. Tozer

Aiden Wilson Tozer (1897–1963) was an American Christian pastor and well-known author who emphasized an intimate and committed relationship with God.

I am frequently asked whether I am related to A.W. Tozer.  Since the last name "Tozer" is not an overly common last name, and I am a Christian, the question is legitimate.

Of course, there must be relation, because we both bear the same last name.  But, to my knowledge, there is no immediate genealogical connection.

Many years ago, the first Biblical-based book that I ever read as a new believer was "The Pursuit of God" by A.W. Tozer.  This book was given to me as a present. 

One analogy that I sometimes utilize when providing legal counsel stems from that book where Dr. Tozer speaks of the "cloud of unknowing" related to God.  In the legal context, lay persons often feel like they are in a foggy cloud about how to deal with their legal issue; but I explain to them that, as they gain more knowledge and understanding through legal counsel, typically the cloud lifts, and they begin to see clearly what it the wisest way seek to resolve their legal problem.
