Requests have come from many quarters for
the publication of some of the sermons which God has been pleased to so greatly
use in Japan, China, Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, India, England, and
Scotland. This volume is published in response to this request. The author
hopes that the sermons may be used as greatly in their printed form as they
have been when spoken. The sermons when delivered, as here published, were
taken down in shorthand, but have been carefully revised by the author. Each
one of them has many sacred memories connected with it. When one of these
sermons was delivered through an interpreter in a Japanese city, eighty-seven
Japanese came forward and declared publicly their acceptance of Christ. After
the delivery of another in Shanghai, a large number of Chinese men and women
walked out from their places among their heathen companions and publicly
professed their acceptance of Christ. On some occasions in Australia, Tasmania,
and New Zealand, hundreds of men and women came forward and with their own lips
publicly confessed their acceptance of Christ as their Saviour and their Lord.
Reports of some of these sermons have been given in religious and secular
papers, but these reports have been necessarily fragmentary and inaccurate, as
they have never been revised by the author. I have abundant proof that even
these unsatisfactory reports have done good, but it seems desirable that a full
and accurate report of what I have said be given to the public.

About the Author

Reuben Archer Torrey (1856--1928) is respected as one of the greatest evangelists of modern times. 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. Dr. Torrey spent the years of 1903-1905 in worldwide 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 the Church of the Open Door in that city. 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. He is the author of many books including "Why God Used D. L. Moody" and "How to Succeed in the Christian Life". Both available through CrossReach Publications
