The Set of the Sail is a unique book that covers a vast array of topics.
The title, Set of the Sail, comes from A. W. Tozer's first essay in this collection, which is a compilation of editorial opinions from the magazine Tozer edited for decades, The Alliance Weekly.
Tozer urges us to set our sails in the will of God, for then we will certainly find ourselves moving in the right direction, no matter which way the wind blows. These articles were all born in the midst of life, in the rough seas where the children of God's voyage about.
Each essay is a concise, thoughtful commentary dealing with the Christian walk through life. These selections are both thought-provoking and challenging and lead to a right relationship with God.
