The Selected Works of R. A. Torrey (4 vols.) is a valuable collection for anyone hungering to see revival, looking for resources on divine healing, seeking to hear the voice of God, or desiring to pray more effectively. As a preacher, Reuben Archer Torrey captivated massive crowds with his passionate yet sensible appeals to Scripture.
