About this Item

Paperback. 144 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.2in. x 0.4in.This World: Playground or Battleground is a wonderful call to the real world or the spiritual life. Christianity exercised a dominant influence over the thinking of our forefathers. They conceived the world as a battleground. They believed in sin and the devil and hell as constituting one force, and . . . in God and righteousness and heaven as the other. How different today. People think of the world not as a battleground, but as a playground. In This World: Playground or Battleground, Tozer calls us to see the real world of the spiritual that lies beyond the physical world that so ensnares us. It can be read as a daily devotional or as a premeditative salve for the soul as you prepare to come into communion with God. The text is short and to the point, abrupt but full of vigor, profound, and downright relevant today. Take this excerpt from the first chapter, People think of the world not as a battleground but as a playground. We are not here to fight; we are here to frolic. . . The worship growing out of such a view itself--has become a sort of sanctified nightclub without champagne. . . This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781600660306

About this title

Synopsis:

It used to be that Christians conceived of the world as a battleground. They believed in sin and the devil and hell as constituting one force, and in God and righteousness and heaven constituting the other. How different today. People think of the world not as a battleground, but as a playground.

In This World: Playground or Battleground? Tozer calls us to see the real world of the spiritual realm that lies beyond the physical that so ensnares us. 

The text is short and to the point, abrupt but full of vigor, profound, and downright relevant today. Take, for example, this excerpt from the first chapter: "People think of the world not as a battleground, but as a playground. We are not here to fight; we are here to frolic. . .The 'worship' growing out of such a view itself has become a sort of sanctified nightclub without champagne."
