In this collection of short biographical sketches, celebrated preacher Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899) draws lessons from the lives of nine men of the Bible. Included are compelling portraits of Abraham, Moses, Naaman, Nehemiah, and the Penitent Thief crucified alongside Jesus. There are also two studies of pairs for comparison: Herod Antipas and John the Baptist, and the Man Born Blind and Joseph of Arimathea. Moody's style is direct, easy to read, inspirational, and full of insight!
DWIGHT L. MOODY (1837-1899) was a highly acclaimed late 19th century evangelist. He founded the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago in 1886 and the Bible Institute Colportage Association, now Moody Publishers, in 1894. From training women, to reaching out to lost children, to bridging the gap between denominations, D.L. Moody was unlike any other. He is author of a number of books including "Christ in You, Heaven, Men God Challenged, " and "Spiritual Power". His life is also chronicled in "A Passion for Souls: The Life of D.L. Moody" by Lyle Dorsett. He and his wife, Emma, had two children.
