First published in 1895, ?The Baptism with the Holy Spirit? is one of the first works written by R. A. Torrey, the American pastor, educator, writer, and evangelist. Born Reuben Archer Torrey in New Jersey in 1856, Torrey was educated at Yale University and Yale Divinity School before becoming a minister in Ohio. Torrey later joined Dwight L. Moody in his evangelical work in Chicago and became the superintendent of the Bible Institute of the Chicago Evangelization Society, now the Moody Bible Institute. Torrey traveled all over the world to preach and is believed to have converted over 100,000 people to Christianity. In ?The Baptism with the Holy Spirit? Torrey sought to help clarify what is meant in the scripture by being baptized with the Holy Spirit as compared to being filled with the Holy Spirit. Filled with reassuring wisdom and thoughtful references to Biblical passages, Torrey explains how people can find the Holy Spirit within themselves through sincere practice and belief. Torrey also shows how the faithful can continue to access the power of the Holy Spirit to lead a truly remarkable and blessed life. Torrey?s instructions on how to lead a life filled with the Holy Spirit and power of God continues to encourage and guide devout Christians to this day.
