This book by Moody's son-in-law and former secretary is not, strictly speaking, a life story of the great evangelist. It is rather a loving estimate of his work and Spirit-filled life by one who was closely associated with him during his most fruitful years.
The author endeavors to explain how "starting from nothing, Mr. Moody became the most influential spiritual figure America has yet produced." He portrays Moody the man . . . in his daily contact with family and friends, as well as in his public appearances.
Says Mr. Fitt, in commenting on the failure of Mr. Moody's popularity to exalt the man, "He so magnified the grace and power of God that he attracted no attention to himself."
You will get an unforgettable picture of Moody in action. The book reveals something of the secret of Moody's power, in order that, as the author expresses it, "a multitude of other lives may be quickened."
