The mission of Torrentes de Vida is to publish texts for the Spanish-speaking world which focus on the themes of the kingdom of God, the centrality of Christ in the Scriptures, God's plan in history, practical Christian living and knowing God better. The Editorial Torrentes de Vida was born as a result of the need for solid biblical texts for use with the MOCLAM (Moore College en Latinoamérica) program of courses, which have a focus on the unity of the Bible and the progressive revelation of the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout its entirety.
