THE D. L. MOODY COLLECTION Add this classic book to your must-read list! Most Christians instantly recognize the name of Dwight Lyman Moody. From his home base in Chicago, this famous shoe-salesman-turned-evangelist led revivals throughout America and Great Britain from the early 1870s until his death in 1899. And his influence continues today in his spiritual descendants, in the ministries he founded, and in the methods of evangelism he pioneered-such as the "seats of decision" for those who came forward at his crusades and follow-up counseling for those new believers. Moody's deep love for new Christians led him to publish tracts and booklets explaining the Christian faith. He communicated basic Christianity on a level common people could understand. And this big-hearted businessman-evangelist published his writings affordably. Because Moody's writings were mostly self-published and in tract form, most of them have long since gone out of print. Today they are preserved mainly as memorable anecdotes quoted by other writers. Concerned lest Moody's writings be lost to history, general editor Jim Bell has brought together in this one volume selections from more than 40 books that showcase Moody the man and Moody the writer. Moody communicated best as a public speaker. Tens of thousands who heard him in person found themselves encountering the person of Jesus Christ. Because Moody's writing style so closely matched the cadence of his preaching, you may well imagine yourself in a front-row seat at a Moody crusade as you read The D. L. Moody Collection. You may, through the pages of this book, find yourself-like Moody's hearers of yesteryear-in "seats of decision" as you see the reality of Christ from a new perspective.
Moody's life story and a variety of his literary works and sermons are available to you in one volume. Experience the life and ministry of Moody, a man fully surrendered to God.
DWIGHT L. MOODY (1837-1899) was a highly acclaimed late 19th century evangelist. He founded the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago in 1886 and the Bible Institute Colportage Association, now Moody Publishers, in 1894. From training women, to reaching out to lost children, to bridging the gap between denominations, D.L. Moody was unlike any other. He is author of a number of books including "Christ in You, Heaven, Men God Challenged, " and "Spiritual Power". His life is also chronicled in "A Passion for Souls: The Life of D.L. Moody" by Lyle Dorsett. He and his wife, Emma, had two children.
