R.A. Torrey (1856-1928) was the first dean of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles, serving at the school from 1912-1924 - following his worldwide revivals and his tenure at Moody Bible Institute. By the time he came to Biola, he was already world-famous. Indeed, Biola's other founders called him to join them precisely because they wanted him to do "That famous Torrey thing" at their school. Torrey was known for a combination of academic prestige, solid teaching, and evangelistic fervor. This book begins with a short biography of the R.A. Torrey and then jumps right in to the very best of his sermons. These sermons were chosen according to the following criteria: most famous, most influential, most characteristic, and drawn from various periods of his ministry. The appendix is previously unpublished autobiographical notes from Torrey himself.
