Yale-educated evangelist R.A. Torrey (1856–1928) worked with D.L. Moody in his early years and became superintendent of what became Moody Bible Institute. He served as a chaplain during the Spanish-American War and World War I. Following this, he held gospel series worldwide, which were greatly blessed. Following this, he was led to found the Bible Institute of Los Angeles (now Biola University). Many of his more than 40 books are still valued by serious Christians. Here is his prescription for true revival: “First, let a group of Christians get thoroughly right with God. If this isn’t done, the rest will come to nothing. Second, let them bind themselves together to pray for revival until God opens the windows of heaven and comes down. Third, let them put themselves at the disposal of God for His use as He sees fit in winning others to Christ. That is all. I’ve given this prescription around the world and in no instance has it failed. It cannot fail.”
