Just finished listening to this audio book, which is an excellent bio on D.L.Moody, a preacher, pastor, revivalist, founder of two Bible schools...God working through an imperfect man! It was a real feast for my faith, of one brother's life in Christ.
My only knock against the book is that I wish he'd woven more of the material about Moody's failing and flaws into the narrative itself rather than cataloging it at the end of the book.

A classic. A great depiction of the life of DL Moody.

A balanced view of a great Christian who did not need the approval of human organizations to be about his Heavenly Fathers business. I found many aspects of his life interesting, his work with children, he was never ordained and did not want to be, he was not accountable to his peers yet never abused funds or raised money for his personal needs, he started his ministry known as crazy Moody and ended it an internationally respected minister of the gospel, he fought for integration and equality fo...more

I couldn't help but wonder while reading the book why the author took every opportunity to lift up Moody as a saint and none to frame him as a fallen human. His weaknesses seemed to be justified away. Truth be told this made the book uninteresting and although I'm a believer I just couldn't relate to much of Moody's experience as relayed by the author.
He was surprisingly but appreciatively flawed, and more charismatic than I would have thought, but powerfully evangelistic, and very much an everyday man. Very ahead of his time. I wish the book would have more samples of his sermons.
The life of a great witness of Christ. His desire for the unity of Christians and churches for the cause of the lost souls should awaken us. It is the best biography of Moody that I have read. The author did a great methodical job.

A great book on the life and ministry of D.L. Moody. Very well written and informative, the book shed light on every aspect of his life and what drove him in ministry and evangelism.

Required school reading... I looked at all the words in the book, but I don't know that I was genuinely paying much attention to them.
Thorough bio, placing the events of his life firmly in their historical contexts. Well written and well researched.
incredible life
