The Early Tozer: A Word in Season is a compilation by James L. Snyder containing selected articles by A. W. Tozer from his earliest years. In the 1940s and 50s, A. W. Tozer wrote a regular column for the Alliance Weekly, and this book is a selection of many of those editorials (all published before Pursuit of God). In fact, these editorials were instrumental in getting Tozer elected to the office of editor of Alliance Weekly from 1950–1963.
Tozer stands firm in his theology and his unapologetic criticisms of the modern church. He declares that the most important thing is a right relationship with God, while reminding his readers that as believers, they are saved by the grace of God on His terms, as well as revealing anew the importance of surrendering to His will.
