It's surprising that this book has not been kept in print. What a fantastic resource for teaching or leading a Bible study! It's like having a Bible tutor at your side, asking probing questions of the Bible text and letting you provide the answers. This book shows how much Torrey was a master of the inductive method of Bible study—his questions could be used to write your own Bible study guide!

Here's how Torrey explains what this book is, "A consecutive, systematic course of studies in our Lord's life and teachings, divided into 140 lessons, each complete in itself, and adapted either for individual or class use." He continues, "The method is workable, and is calculated to develop the student's own gifts, and that in direct work upon the Bible text itself. It is not too laborious in quantity or manner for the every-day Christian...Dr. Torrey asks the questions, the student—each for himself or herself—answers the questions from the open Bible. Dr. Torrey gives a classification of the teachings, but each student should carry the discovery and classification further for himself."

About Reuben Archer Torrey

(Excerpted from a biography at Biola University's Reuben Archer Torrey Honors Institute)

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.
