Works by R. A. Torrey
- How To Pray
Written a little over a century ago, How to Pray is a wonderful treatise on
prayer. The author, Reuben Torrey, effortlessly guides even the most seasoned
person of prayer into deeper, more significant prayer. Torrey explains what
prayer is, what it can do, and when one should pray. He also describes the
hindrances that keep believers from praying effectively, and how with the power
of God believers can overcome those hindrances. Filled with a spirit of
graciousness, this classic work on prayer has helped generations and can also
further one's own spiritual maturation in the "essential activity" of prayer.

- Revival Addresses
Description: R.A. Torrey is one of the greatest American evangelists. Often mentioned in concert with Dwight L. Moody (of the Moody Bible Institute), Torrey spent his life (1856-1928) traveling the world (Great Britain, China, Japan, Australia, India) and spreading the gospel of Christ. Revival Addresses is a compilation of 40 sermons he preached at rallies around the world. If one is daunted by the sheer volume of the messages, "The Greatest Sentence Ever Written" is a good place to start. It focuses on 1 John 4:8, "God is love." This simple sentence inspires some of Torrey's most powerful messages of hope and love for the unsaved. Primarily a collection of sermons designed to bring unbelievers to salvation, Revival Addresses is a masterful resource for pastors, but also for unbelievers or Christians looking for motivation for evangelism.

- Torrey's New Topical Textbook
Description: Torrey's topical concordance happened to be published during the same year (1897)
as Orvile Nave's Topical Bible. Although Nave's Topical Bible has remained more
popular, many still prefer Torrey's concordance, particularly those within the Reformed
and Baptist traditions. This topical concordance contains 628 entries and over 20,000
scripture references. The entries are arranged alphabetically by topic title.
