Overview

More than a century after his death D. L. Moody remains a towering figure whose influence of his evangelism is still felt; the institutions he founded in America continue to flourish; his place in history is secure. But it is his personality that commands attention: rugged, delightful, compassionate, a man of total integrity, with a supreme gift for bringing Christianity before a whole range of contemporary hearers and putting them to work for God. Dwight Lyman Moody (even his wife called him D. L.) was the outstanding evangelist of his time - in his pioneering endeavour and fervour Moody has become an enduring figure of stature and inspiration. He landed at Liverpool, England, unknown and unexpected but when he left Britain -Scotland, Ireland and England were at his feet, he was contagious! John Pollock captures this infectiousness in his classic biography.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
John Pollock has long been in the forefront of Christian biographers and this volume might well be considered his greatest. ~ Rev W M Moss, English Churchman

By the time the reader has finished this book he has the impression that he knows Moody, has heard him and even shaken hands with him ~ New York Times

Other biographies of Moody are rather bland... John Pollock makes Moody live. I heartily commend 'Moody without Sankey' to every Christian ~ Billy Graham
