This chapter examines the Reverend Reuben A. Torrey's early life, his ideas about “power for service,” and the ways they developed during his tenure at the Moody Bible Institute. Torrey had met Moody during the latter's 1878 revival meeting in New Haven, Connecticut, and had found himself drawn to the ideas of this “strange, uneducated man.” It would be another decade before the two men crossed paths again, but Torrey would spend much of that time attempting to understand Moody's teachings regarding the Holy Spirit. Torrey later came to understand his experience of the Holy Spirit in the context of contract ideology. In the age of mass employment, the concept of contract became a catch-all solution to the ongoing problem of defining economic freedom.
