Product Description

“R. A. Torrey's passion for making Christian theology a matter of daily life shows up in the host of "how to" books that he wrote. This volume brings together in one place the two most influential of Torrey's practical guides. How to Pray sparked numerous revivals in the first decade of the twentieth century, and How to Study the Bible was a key text in spreading inductive Bible study techniques and opening up the riches of Scripture for ordinary Christians. What Torrey valued most was making the truth accessible and practical, enabling every Christian to know God personally and to take definite action in the service of Christ.”
—Fred Sanders, Biola University

As valuable as when they were first published a century ago, Torrey’s two disciple-making classics—both brimming with practical wisdom encourage believers to grow in the knowledge and love of God. How to Pray describes varieties of biblical “prayer that availeth much.” How to Study the Bible details seven fruitful methods of inductive Bible study. Now together for the first time in one binding!
