Reuben Archer Torrey

Torrey Revival FiresReuben Archer Torrey (28 January 1856 – 26 October 1928) was an American evangelist, pastor, educator, and writer. He graduated from Yale University in 1875 and Yale Divinity School in 1878. Following graduation, Torrey became  Congregational minister in Garrettsville, Ohio, in 1878. After further studies in theology at Leipzig University and Erlangen University in 1882–1883, Torrey joined Dwight L. Moody in his evangelistic work in Chicago in 1889, and became superintendent of the Bible Institute of the Chicago Evangelization Society (now Moody Bible Institute).

Five years later, he became pastor of the Chicago Avenue Church (now the Moody Church) in 1894.  In 1902–1903, he preached in nearly every part of the English-speaking world and with song leader Charles McCallon Alexander conducted revival services in Great Britain from 1903 to 1905. During this period, he also visited China, Japan, Australia, and India. Torrey conducted a similar campaign in American and Canadian cities in 1906–1907. Throughout these campaigns, Torrey used a meeting style that he borrowed from Moody's campaigns of the 1870s. In 1907, he accepted an honorary doctorate from Wheaton College.[expand title="Read more"]

This book is written because it seems to be needed. The author has been repeatedly requested by Ministers, Y. M. C. A. Secretaries, Christian Workers, and his own students to put into a permanent and convenient shape the substance of what he has said at Conventions, Summer Schools and in the class–room on personal work. The time has come to yield to these requests. Never before in the history of the Church were there so many who desire to win others to Christ. The good work done by the Young People’s Society of Christian Endeavor is in no other direction so evident as in the many thousands of young people in this land who to–day are on fire with a desire to win souls. But while they desire to do this work, many do not know how. This little book aims to tell them. There are several well–known and valuable manuals of texts to be used with inquirers, but this book is intended not only to point out passages to be used but to show how to use them, illustrating this use by cases from 4actual experience. It is hoped that from a careful study of these pages any earnest Christian can learn how to do efficient work in bringing others to the Saviour.

* Note By David Cox (theWord Module Creator). In general, all the information in Torrey’s book is good material for witnessing. In this chapter he expounds on “the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.” Although it is important to recognize the Spirit’s work in witnessing, his view of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is basically a Pentecostal viewpoint, and I have to totally disagree with him. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a one time act that happens to a person when they first have saving faith. There is no other sign of this happening except that the person now has the Holy Spirit in his mind, heart, and conscience convicting him ever more intensely of sin in his own life. He stops sinning. I do not understand the Bible’s position on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in any other manner. I would not recommend the point of view in this chapter AT ALL! Our water baptism is similar to what Christ’s water baptism was, that is a kind of anointing for service or ministry. This also only happens once per lifetime.

Seven Marks of a Good Sermon
quote from article - "A good sermon has a "take-away" thought(s), and this is what we should leave the building with to change our lives spiritually to make us more like Christ. If a sermon teaches me how to be like Christ, with an application of the information about the Bible in it, and an exhortation to my soul to change, then it probably is a good sermon. But the preacher who has lost the point of every preaching exercise HAS TO HAVE the purpose to spiritually change the lives of the audience, is not a good preacher nor does he produce good sermons."
