A Generous Impulse: The Story of George Sweeting is a biography on this chancellor of Moody Bible Institure. The most memorable night of George Sweeting's life was Friday, August 16, 1940 when he heard David Otis Fuller speak on James 1:22 about not only being hearers of the Word but doers also.

Now, George and his wife have four sons and several grandchildren.
