Lyle Dorsett, one of America's foremost historians, writes with the insight and passion of an evangelist.  That's why this book throbs with wonder.  More than a definitive study on Moody, it gets to the heart of things, and shows how God can work through a man willing to take Him at His Word and let the Holy Spirit have His way.  Read it, it has a tonic for your soul.
-Robert E. Coleman, Director of the School of World Missions and Evangelism, Trinity International University

I thoroughly enjoyed each chapter and gladly recommend it.  Chapter four alone, on Moody and the Civil War, is worth the price of the book.
-George Sweeting, Chancellor Emeritus, Moody Bible Institute

Lyle Dorsett has written a fascinating account of D. L. Moody's life, using new materials in previously unpublished letters to demonstrate his humility, his relationship with his family and deep concern for his children, his interest in immigrants and poor young women, and his undaunted confidence in the young.  This will be of great interest to evangelists, all Moody scholars, and the general public.
-Patty Stout, Great-granddaughter of D. L. Moody

D. L. Moody was a towering giant of the faith, an anointed powerful communicator of the gospel, and, most of all, a man exemplifying the humility and love of Christ.  He is truly a model for all age groups.  This book is an insightful look at a great man of God.
-Bill Bright, Founder and Former President, Campus Crusade for Christ International

D. L. Moody may have lived 100 years ago, but his life's story speaks to this generation with the same power that it did in the 19th century.  Here is the story of an ordinary man who rose from poverty with only a minimum of education to bring two continents, Europe and North America, to repentance.  No one can read this book without getting tremendously excited, motivated, and deeply moved by God.
-Luis Palau, International Evangelist

To our desperate world struggling with broken families, poverty, and hopelessness, D. L. Moody brings visionary inspiration.  To our jaded world looking on men of God with skepticism, and even cynicism, D. L. Moody brings integrity.  To our self-centered world starving for love, D. L. Moody brings a Christ-centered passion for souls.
-Gene Getz, Author, MBI: The Story of Moody Bible Institute

Biographers of D. L. Moody have tended to praise him as a spiritual hero or reduce his efforts to a function of historical circumstance.  The great merit of Lyle Dorsett's new biography is to combine spiritual insight with unusually wide research.  The result is a book that positions Moody in his times, but which also provides Christian reasons for why he was so important in those times, and since.
-Mark A. Noll, McManis Professor of Christian Thought, Wheaton College
