"The conviction deepens in me with the years that the old truths of the Bible must be stated and restated in the plainest possible language." D. L. Moody The Ten Commandments are the only words that God wrote to man with His own hand. In fact, He wrote them out twice, and even spoke them aloud in the hearing of Israel. D. L. Moody was one of the most effective evangelists of the nineteenth century. With no official ordination and little formal education, Moody recognized the importance of making Christian doctrine simple and understandable by the common man. Thus, he set about writing inexpensive Christian books that would reach lost souls. In The Ten Commandments, Moody devotes a separate chapter to each commandment, with a concluding summary. His fervent belief was that the commandments are still God's measure of obedience today. But they are more than a measuring stick; they are a signpost pointing fallen mankind toward the only One who was able to keep God's law. Moody's teachings are still relevant to this day. His words still resonate just as they did in his large evangelical meetings where thousands of converts fell to their knees. He reminds us that Jesus came not to abolish the law but to fulfill it, and to become righteousness for all who believe.
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's legacy includes three Christian schools, a Christian publishing business, and a million souls won for Christ.
