It will be of help to the minister insuggesting to him how to make full proof of hisown ministry and how to get his people to work. Itwill be of help to laymen in leading them intomany fields of fruitful labor for Christ. The Church of Christ is full of people who wish towork for their Master but do not know how. Thisbook is intended to tell them how. It contains nountried theories, but describes many methods ofwork that have been put to the test of actualexperiment and have succeeded. So far as I know,there is no other book that covers the same field.For years it has been upon my heart to write thisbook, and I have been asked again and again to doso. But I have never found time for it until now.
May it be used of God to the conversion ofthousands to Christ. R. A. Torrey {5} TABLE OF CONTENTS BOOK ONE -- PERSONAL WORK Chapter Page01. The Importance and Advantages ofPersonal Work 9 02.
