Duration: 17 hours 46 minutes
Lyle Dorsett, one of America's foremost historians, writes with the insight and passion of an evangelist. That's why this book throbs with wonder. More than a definitive study on Moody, it gets to the heart of things, and shows how God can work through a man willing to take Him at His Word and let the Holy Spirit have His way. Read it, it has a tonic for your soul.
Robert E. Coleman - Director of the School of World Missions and Evangelism, Trinity International University
I thoroughly enjoyed each chapter and gladly recommend it. Chapter four alone, on Moody and the Civil War, is worth the price of the book.
George Sweeting - Chancellor Emeritus, Moody Bible Institute
Lyle Dorsett has written a fascinating account of D.L. Moody's life, using new materials in previously unpublished letters to demonstrate his humility, his relationship with his family and deep concern for his children , his interest in immigrants and poor young women, and his undaunted confidence in the young. This will be of great interest to evangelists, all Moody scholars, and the general public.
Patty Stout - Great-granddaughter of D.L. Moody
"The World has yet to see what God can do with a man fully consecrated to Him." These words, spoken to D. L. Moody by a fellow evangelist, fired his imagination and gave him a vision for living all out to the glory of God. "By God's help, I aim to be that man," Moody said.
Moody preached the gospel to more than 100 million people in the pre-television era. Lyle Dorsett's lucid, thoughtful prose reveals the heart of this great evangelist, recounting his life and realistically probing his strengths, weaknesses, virtues, faults, triumphs, struggles, and motivations to find a man after God's own heart.
