Although good works do not earn our way to heaven, the true believer is highly motivated to serve Christ in practical ways. In this timeless classic, R.A. Torrey uses material originally distributed to teach others Bible basics, and how to prepare Bible lessons and evangelical sermons. In this text, Torrey lays out nine prerequisites to being a successful Christian worker. Within the context of real-life situations, he gives readers a plan to increase their effectiveness for Christ.
