Contains four lesser-known volumes by evangelist and scholar R. A. Torrey
In this volume, Torrey discusses his belief in and experience with the concept of divine healing: its scriptural basis, the manner in which people should pray for it, the use of medicine, and how we should view its occurrence or non-occurrence. Torrey bases his discussion on three biblical passages involving healing: James 5: 14–15, Matthew 8: 16–17, and 2 Kings 13: 14.
In this text, Torrey collects experiences of “men whom God has used in winning souls to Christ and building up believers” in order to provide a resource for the “thousands of ministers and other Christian workers . . . longing for a true revival of God’s work, but with no experimental or even theoretical knowledge of how to go to work to promote such a revival.” This text also includes the chapters “The Holy Spirit in a Revival” and “The Place of Prayer in a Revival,” and a series of sermons condensed into outline form. Suggestive outlines come from eminent evangelists including Torrey, D. L. Moody, Charles G. Finney, Charles Spurgeon.
Condensed from R. A. Torrey’s How to Pray, this title is designed as a more accessible version that can be read in one sitting. Torrey’s classic text is a spiritual gem that has remained popular for over 100 years, celebrating the power of prayer. Beginning with the importance of prayer, Torrey’s practical guidebook covers the how, when, and most importantly, the why of praying. This version is an excellent devotional resource for any Christian library.
This volume contains a collection of R. A. Torrey’s sermons, preached between autumn of 1916 and spring of 1917 at The Church of the Open Door in Los Angeles, California, amidst the trials and anxieties of the First World War. With titles including “God’s Guidance and How to Get It,” “Why I Believe That Jesus Christ Is God in Human Form,” and “The Secret of Abiding Peace, Abounding Joy, and Abundant Victory in War Times and at All Times,” there are kernels of wisdom that still resonate strongly with readers. These sermons are brimming with passion and remain a treasury of spiritual insights and biblical exegesis.
