It is a good insight into the workings and teachings of the great Evangelist.

New Orleans Daily Democrat

A book of Anecdotes which have thrilled hundreds of thousands.

Presbyterian Banner

Excellent reading.

The book has been compiled by Rev. J. B. McClure, whose scholarship and journalistic experience perfectly fit him to do the work discriminatingly and well.

Christian Advocate

They are short, pointed, peculiarly apt, as are all the illustrations of the Evangelist. They form the arrows of the great marksman, and have done much of the execution of his sermons.

Zion’s Herald

There are many who will prize this book as a treasure-house stored with weapons for war, and instruments for service.

International Lesson Monthly

Moody’s sayings are wonderfully strong, and his stories are well pointed and striking. It is a good work for Christ and for the truth to gather and publish them.

Jonathan Edwards (1866–1869), first president of Washington & Jefferson College

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.
