Find nourishment for your mind and food for your soul as you explore the details of the Bible with the Works of R.A. Torrey (26 vols.). Torrey is one the great evangelists of our time, with an eye for exegesis and the practical wisdom of a seasoned servant.
This collection includes more than 6,000 pages of inductive study, systematic teaching, and practical preaching. Study key Bible passages by topic in the New Topical Text Book, and work through some of the most contested portions of Scripture in Difficulties in the Bible. In the four-volume Fundamentals, Torrey compiles definitive writings from his fellow defenders of the faith: B.B. Warfield, C.I. Scofield, G. Campbell Morgan, Bishop Ryle, H.C.G. Moule, James Orr, and more. In Anecdotes and Illustrations, he provides inspirational stories perfect for sharing in small-group discussions or sermons.
Torrey’s legacy is well-represented in these volumes. Eric M. Pazdziora, editor of the R.A. Torrey Archive, notes of Torrey:
“As an evangelist, he was in the same league as D.L. Moody and Billy Graham. As an apologist, his work compares to the best of Josh McDowell or C.S. Lewis. As a preacher, he held massive crowds captive with his sensible appeals to Scripture. As an author, his writings are regarded as classics in diverse fields including theology, apologetics, Bible exposition, and practical Christian living. . . . R.A. Torrey [is] the most undeservedly neglected Christian author of the past 150 years.”
