We are starting a four part series from RA Torrey on the importance of and the how to’s of Bible study. In today’s post Torrey examines the absolute necessity of Bible study and gives a method to do so systematically. RA Torrey served with DL Moody for a season as the superintendent of Moody Bible Institute and eventually became pastor of Moody Church in Chicago. He often traveled the country as an evangelist and wrote over 40 books.
There is nothing more important for the development of a Christian’s spiritual life than regular, systematic Bible study. It is as true in the spiritual life as in the physical life, that health depends on what we eat and how much we eat. “Man shall not live by bread alone” (Matt. 4:4). The soul’s proper food is found in one book, the Bible.
