“The representations of Christ by many poets, essayists, and preachers, while not so grossly false, are nevertheless unsatisfying,” said R. A. Torrey. Almost everyone we talk to has a different interpretation of the person of Christ—who He was and what He stood for. This prompted Torrey on a journey to discover the real Christ—the Christ whom God reveals to us in His Word.
Through this book, you will encounter…
  • Christ’s love for the Father
  • His love for men
  • His humility, manliness, and compassion
  • His prayerfulness
Join R. A. Torrey on a journey to discover the real Christ, not the Christ of Western society or the one we often fabricate in our minds. Learn who the real Christ is, the Christ of God’s own appointment, whom Christ reveals to us through the written Word.

About the Author

Reuben Archer Torrey (1856–1928) was one of the greatest evangelists of the twentieth century. Several years after his graduation from Yale Divinity School, he was selected by D. L. Moody to become the first dean of the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. Under his direction, Moody Institute became a pattern for Bible institutes around the world. From 1903 to 1905, Dr. Torrey traveled the world in revival campaigns, winning thousands of souls to Jesus Christ. He continued worldwide crusades for the next fifteen years while he served as the dean of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles and pastored that city’s Church of the Open Door. Dr. Torrey longed for more Christian workers to take an active part in bringing the message of salvation through Christ to a lost and dying world. His straightforward style of evangelism has shown thousands of Christian workers how to become effective soulwinners.
