Overview

“A rule I have had for years is: to treat the Lord Jesus Christ as a personal friend. His is not a creed, a mere doctrine, but it is He Himself we have.” D. L. Moody was considered one of the greatest evangelists of the 19th century. His ability to tell memorable stories about faith and the Bible drew crowds wherever he preached. His legacy remains not only in the institutions he founded, such as Moody Church and the Moody Bible Institute, but in the enduring words he left for future generations of Christians. The Works of Dwight L. Moody brings together 26 volumes of Moody’s inspiring and timeless works.

The Works of Dwight L. Moody (26 vols.) contains hundreds of his sermons and addresses, plus his works on heaven, grace, prayer, the ten commandments, Christian living, and his studies on biblical characters. Also included is Notes from My Bible: from Genesis to Revelation—the marginal notes from Moody’s Bible—and the practical Pleasure and Profit in Bible Study. The collection contains two biographies on his unique and inspiring life, and also a daily devotional containing Moody’s reflections on a passage of Scripture for each day of the year.

With the Logos Bible Software edition all Scripture passages in The Works of Dwight L. Moody (26 vols.) are tagged and appear on mouse-over. This makes these resources more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform lightning-quick searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “grace” or “Matthew 28:19–20.”

Praise for D. L. Moody

There can be no need for us to commend the living, blazing speech of our brother Moody. Who can equal him in natural simplicity all aglow with holy passion?

Charles Spurgeon

By the strenuous cultivation of his gift Mr. Moody has attained to a clear and incisive style which preachers ought to study; and he has the merit, which many more cultivated men lack, of saying nothing that does not tend to the enforcement of the particular truth he is enunciating. He knows how to disencumber his text of all extraneous matter, and exhibits his wisdom as a preacher hardly less by what he leaves out than what he includes. Apart from its primary purpose, each of these books has a distinct value as a lesson on homiletics to ministers and students.

Christian Leader

Anything from the pen of this renowned evangelist will be read with interest.

Index

For sanity, sincerity, spirituality, and success Moody goes into the very first rank of revival preachers.

  • Publication Date: 1881
  • Pages: 116

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The Secret of Success in Christian Life and Christian Work is Moody’s exploration of Matthew 28:19–20. As he notes in the preface, “If we would work, ‘not as one that beateth the air,’ but to some definite purpose, we must have this power from on high. Without this power, our work will be drudgery. With it, it becomes a joyful task, a refreshing service.”

It is a good statement of the secret success in Christian life, by one who has some claim to speak on such a theme.

Outlook

This series of earnest and solemn addresses bear throughout that stamp of honest, eager earnestness, which is so striking a characteristic of the writer’s labors as a preacher.

No man has ever known how to use such illustrations better than D. L. Moody. I have heard him preach for an hour, and looking back, it seemed like one single string of stories, with scarcely anything between. And yet, they had all been pertinent to his subject; they had been told, not for the story, but because they made his subject live in the minds and hearts of the people before him.

—Rev. Louis Albert Banks, Homiletic Review

About Dwight Lyman Moody

Dwight Lyman Moody (1837–1899) was born in Northfield, Mass. His father died soon after, and Moody was forced to work to support the family at an early age. In 1854, Moody took a job at his uncle’s shoe store and one of the conditions upon employment was that he should regularly attend his uncle’s church. It was at this church where his conversion took place. He moved to Chicago in 1856, and after working as a successful Sunday-school teacher and building a membership of 1,500 pupils, the Illinois Street Church was formed. He then began his revival work, which would become his life-long endeavor.

Beginning in 1872, Moody would travel and preach in Great Britain, winning the esteem of many prominent evangelicals. When he returned to America, he had invitations all over the country for speaking engagements. For the next 20 years, Moody would travel the globe, packing churches and revival halls with those wanting to hear him preach. He was honest, preached a Calvinistic creed which he accepted with all his heart, and was a master of an effective style. During all of his travels, he found time to write and publish numerous works.

Moody was also known for the educational institutions he started. The Illinois Street Church he started was later renamed in his honor to Moody Church. In 1886, Moody established the Chicago Evangelization Society for the education and training of Christian workers. This institution was renamed the Moody Bible Institute in his honor after he passed away in 1899.
