Dwight Lyman Moody (1837-1899) started life as a successful shoe salesman but became one of the most respected evangelists of the nineteenth century. In his early years, he was known for his highly effective Sunday school ministry and his evangelistic work among soldiers during the Civil War. After Moody's church was destroyed in the Chicago fire, he received a powerful infilling of the Holy Spirit. Newly empowered, he held dynamic meetings in America and Great Britain and founded Moody Bible Institute. When he died, Moody left a rich legacy: three Christian schools, a Christian publishing business, and a million souls won for Christ.
