Dwight L. Moody, “Mr. Moody,” was a hugely important Evangelical, of international significance. Both his influence on modern evangelicalism and the interest in him remain as strong today as in his own lifetime. This book provides a rounded assessment of Moody’s life and legacy: his theology, preaching, revivalist strategy, church music innovation, and global missionary work.
While Moody has been the subject of many popular biographies, this is the first book to bring together international experts in all of Moody’s many fields of activity and to provide a thoroughgoing evaluation of his life and achievements. It will establish Moody’s historical importance and enduring legacy as a principal icon of the modern Evangelical movement.

These insightful—and, as I found them to be, inspiring—essays demonstrate that Mr. Moody has much to teach us both about the evangelical past and about how Christianity can best address the issues of the present. This book is ‘must’ reading for anyone who wants to learn those lessons.
