I disagree with Torrey's statement in the preface, and history seems to have put the RV on the shelf, but Torrey's book still has great value.

I've been changing the RV verses to KJV, but I started halfway through. Don't know if I'll go back and change the rest. Maybe. The first three books were VERY interesting, and I wouldn't be adverse to reading them again!
