Perhaps the greatest American evangelist of the nineteenth century, Dwight L. Moody inspired millions with his sermons. Although a century and a half separates us from his impassioned explications of the Bible, Moody’s ardor rings with overtones of today’s fundamentalist Christianity and can offer critical clues to understanding the orthodox religious outlook still dramatically influencing our culture in the twenty-first century.
