About the Author

Reuben Archer Torrey (1856-1928) was at one time early in his Christian life a higher critic. Yet, during a year of study in Germany, he rejected that philosophy, and he later became one of the leading thinkers among the early Fundamentalists. A powerful preacher, Torrey made his mark on world evangelism. Among his other achievements were being the first superintendent of Moody Bible Institute, pastor of the Moody Memorial Church, the Church of the Open Door in Los Angeles, and dean of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles (now Biola University). Torrey wrote many books, including The Real Christ (1920), Is the Bible the Inerrant Word of God? (1922), and The Power of Prayer.

Anyone wanting to understand the roots of Christian fundamentalism must read these volumes. These are the articles responsible for the creation of the movement; they are the intellectual thrust behind it.Despite being written by men from a wide variety of Christian traditions, a common theme of plenary verbal inspiration runs through the work. The editor advocates a literal interpretation of Scripture and a return to the Bible's "fundamentals." Though not all of the philosophies and positions of these writers are still accepted by modern fundamentalists (like Theistic evolution,) it still shows where they're coming from.

VOLUME IFundamentalism has been defined in many ways by many different people. Today it is almost a swear word, spat out when referring to radical islamists and narrow-minded Christians. The name "fundamentalism" has it's roots, however, in this collection of essays called "The Fundamentals". Theologian R.A. Torrey, with the help of a couple wealthy Christian businessmen, commissioned the work in 1909 to stem the tide of modernism and liberal theology that was slowly taking over the mainstream denominations. Originally a four-volume set containing articles and essays by noted Christian thinkers of the day, this particular release is in two volumes. This first volume contains several articles combating "higher criticism" and defending a literal, grammatical, historical interpretation of the scriptures. There are also articles dealing with the existence of God, the deity of Christ, and the person and work of the Holy Spirit.For me one of the best articles was "Life in the Word" by Philip Mauro--an exposition of what Scripture means when it claims to be "living". I was interested to note in the early chapters a somewhat tepid defense of Creationism, including a couple allowances for "theistic evolution". In subsequent articles, however, a literal six-day creation is defended.
