Product Description

Sermons to change you, a life to inspire you.

Scholar, expositor, storyteller, and evangelist, R. A. Torrey was a master-of-all-trades minister. Crowds worldwide called his preaching "that famous Torrey thing." 

And that famous Torrey thing won souls.

Inside are the most famous, influential, and characteristic of his sermons. Though nearly a century old, they challenge us anew from Scripture and are greatly instructive to any who preach.

Drawn from various periods of Torrey's ministry, and prefaced with bibliographic commentary, these sermons paint a portrait of a man gripped by God. But even more they grip the reader. They take us into the great halls where God's Word bellowed forth from Torrey and left his audiences hushed. It's no wonder that Torrey caught the attention of the great evangelist D. L. Moody.

Be ready to be provoked. Like an archer who strikes with both accuracy and force, Torrey preached with clarity while cutting deep to the heart. Behind the bow you'll see a man fully sold on the kingdom of God, and you'll be inspired to follow suit.

About the Author

Fred Sanders
FRED SANDERS is a professor of theology at Biola University's Torrey Honors Institute, where he has taught since 1999. The doctrine of the Trinity is his main interest, but he writes and speaks on the full range of Christian doctrine. He is the author of several books, including The Deep Things of God: How the Trinity Changes Everything and Wesley on the Christian Life: The Heart Renewed in Love. He and his family live in La Mirada, California, and attend Grace Evangelical Free Church.


R.A. Torrey (1856-1928) was one of the most important evangelical leaders most Christians have forgotten. This collection of his sermons serves as a great introduction to his life and ministry. History buffs will love the never-before-printed autobiography featured in the appendix. All in all, these jewels shine the bright light of Christ into our very different world—a world that stands in desperate need of Torrey's loving, holy boldness and evangelistic zeal.

R.A. Torrey is too often overlooked—and I'm thankful for How God Used R.A. Torrey. He preached an unchanged gospel—Torrey called it the "old gospel message." Yet, Torrey was willing to use changing methods—even is his own life, from big-room meeting, to personal discipleship, to founding what today is a globally-known university. A century later, this book will help you learn more of the essential Torrey!
