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.
