Cosimo, Inc., 2006 M10 1 - 444 páginas
Dwight Lyman Moody was the Billy Graham of the 19th century, a child of a large working-class family who went on to preach to an entire nation... and its leaders: both Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant attended his revivals during their presidencies. Here, in a work that is part biography and part tribute, is the story of Moody's life-from his stolid New England childhood to his adult conversion to fundamentalist Christianity to his Chicago ministry and missionary work during the Civil War-and the story of his faith that inspired his fiery defense of the Bible and his massive evangelical crusades during the 1870s and 80s in both England and the United States. First published in 1900, just a year after Moody's death, this volume also includes essays and reflections on his life by those he worked with and motivated, and other accolades. And though more than a century separates us from Moody's power and influence, his life and work are at the root of today's orthodox fundamentalist Christianity-Moody continues to impact American culture today. Rev. AUGUSTUS WARNER WILLIAMS (1844-1920) is also the author of Bleeding Armenia (1896).
