From the Back Cover of Torrey

What About the Controversies?Drawing from the questions he has heard from believers and nonbelievers around the world, R. A. Torrey discusses many Bible controversies, including:* Is there an opportunity for salvation after we die?* Did Jonah really live in the belly of a whale?* Did God command Abraham to kill his son?* Did Jesus commend the unjust steward?* Does God send us lying and evil spirits?* Does the Bible contradict itself?* Where did Cain get his wife?* Does God change His mind?* Impure Bible stories* And many more!Those who have questioned the authenticity of the Bible or wondered about certain passages will find here an exploration of the truth and real facts of God's Word.

Reuben Archer Torrey (28 January, 1856 - 26 October, 1928), was an American evangelist, pastor, educator, and writer.

Edward Andrews has taken R. A. Torrey's book on Bible difficulties and has updated and expended it by 265 pages, in the form of a preface, an introduction and the long appendices.

    DERIVATIVE WORK
    This is a derivative work, which has been transformed and adapted. (i.e., updated and expanded) The purchaser of Torrey alone, would have only received 50 pages of somewhat outdated material. A purchaser of Torrey and Andrews combined, will receive 181 pages of current scholarship.

    Normally, I would not write a review on a book that I had something to do with, but I want potential readers to understand what we mean by updated and expanded. There are notes all throughout the book that have been added, which if put together, they would likely equal 10 pages of updates or explanations.

    Also, we updated many of the scriptural references from Torrey's 1881 Revised Version to the 2001 English Standard Version. There are places where we left the Revised Version because it was needed for the point he was making.

    In addition, we added actually more than the 128 pages in three appendices, it ended up being 181 pages. The appendix are called

    Bible Difficulties Explained, The Synoptic Problem, Debunking the Documentary Hypothesis and are quite beneficial to any Christian looking to defend his faith and God's Word.

    Finally, we added bracketed notes [ ], as well. These contain clarifying information. We also updated some of the English, and the grammar. Also, we replaced some of Torrey's highly technical words, replacing them with words that mean the same thing, but are much easier to understand. At the end, we recommended books along the lines of this one, on a much larger scale though. Torrey, and myself, are not seeking to overturn every criticism. We are seeking to overturn about one hundred of the most common ones, as an evidence that there are answers. Moreover, we are seeking to help the reader understand why there are Bible difficulties (not contradictions and errors). We together offer over 30 well defined reasons, as well as example criticisms that fit the reasons they are listed under, which are then given reasonable answers.
