What the Bible Teaches
Based on the book by the same name by R. A. Torrey
This book is a modernization of R. A. Torrey's classic book on systematic theology
What the Bible Teaches
. It includes a cross-referencing scheme to correlate with the 17th edition.There are several kinds of updates:(1) Torrey used the King James Version (KJV), which many modern readers (including the Reviser)find difficult to read due to the Shakespearean-era vocabulary and syntax and difficult to pronounce. In general Torrey's extensive KJV quotes have been replaced with New International Version (NIV)quotes.(2) Torrey's book is actually a somewhat more organized version of his class lecture notes. Thenumbering scheme varies among sections, which can get confusing. Variations in the scheme have been eliminated.(3) All Topics and Points have been assigned a reference number, with cross-references to Torrey'swork.(4) When the book was written the dominant religion in the United States was Protestantism. FewEnglish speakers knew anything about Mormonism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Wicca, or other non-Christian religions. Material has been added discussing some religious concepts foreign toChristianity and non-religious philosophies that compete with Christianity such as Existentialismand macro-evolution.(5) The sequence of presentation has been reversed. Torrey basically presents scripture quotesfollowed by a "summary" "point". Modern readers are used to an introductory statement followed by supporting material. Even knowing that Torrey has the order reversed, modern readers still havea tendency to read his "point" sentence and then try to connect it with the
 text rather thanthe preceding text.(6) A number of concepts are discussed that are common knowledge today but rarely considered inTorrey's time, e.g., the difference between intelligence and sentience.(7) Chapter numbers are in increments of ten except in a few cases. This was done to allow insertionof additional material or to subdivide lengthy chapters.(8)
 Even-numbered chapters and points are from Torrey's material and odd-numbered material has been added.
