Dwight Lyman Moody), also known as D.L. Moody, was an American evangelist and publisher who founded the Moody Church, Northfield School and Mount Hermon School in Massachusetts (now the Northfield Mount Hermon School), the Moody Bible Institute and Moody Publishers.
Some have called Moody the Greatest Evengaelist of the 19th Century. On several occasions he filled stadiums of 2,000 to 4,000. In the Botanic Gardens Palace, a meeting had between 15,000 to 30,000 people. This type of turnout continued throughout 1874 and 1875, with crowds of thousands at all of his meetings.
During his visit to Scotland he was helped and encouraged by Andrew A. Bonar. The famous London Baptist preacher, Charles Spurgeon invited him to speak and promoted him as well. When he returned to the United States, crowds of 12,000 to 20,000 were just as common as in England.
President Grant and some of his cabinet attended a meeting on January 19, 1876. His evangelistic meetings were held from Boston to New York, throughout New England and as far as San Francisco, and other West coast towns from Vancouver to San Diego.
Moody's Aneccotes and Illustrations includes accounts during his travels and meetings. The best anecdotes have been selected and carefully compiled under appropriate headings. Mr. Moody's idiom has been strictly preserved. He tells the story. "Gold" will be found scattered through the volume, which includes Mr. Moody's terse declarations of many precious and timely truths.
