If you own a Logos base package, you are probably familiar with R. A. Torrey’s New Topical Text Book and Difficulties in the Bible. But Torrey’s legacy goes well beyond these two volumes. As 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. His name: R. A. Torrey (1856–1928), the most undeservedly neglected Christian author of the past 150 years.”
R. A. Torrey possessed an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the Bible, and used that knowledge to help readers apply Scripture in practical ways. These 15 books are an absolute gold mine of biblical doctrine and teaching.

“Reuben Archer Torrey (1856-1928) was both an evangelist and a Bible scholar. Long associated with evangelist D. L. Moody, he became most prominent during world preaching tours in 1902 and 1921. His preaching in Wales in 1902 has been noted as one cause for the Welsh revivals of the early 1900s. He was the first superintendent of the Moody Bible Institute and wrote numerous devotional and theological books.”
“Spiritual awakening followed R. A. Torrey throughout his career as an evangelist. In revivals with the popular gospel singer Charles W. Alexander, Dr. Torrey filled meeting halls with his magnetic presence, passion, and earnestness.”
