Reviews - What do customers think about A Passion for Souls: The Life of D.L. Moody?
Excellent Book Jul 19, 2007
This book helped me learn so much more about Moody and the time in which he lived. It inspired me in how God can use anyone who loves Him and follows His leading. Moody was not a religious man---he traded religion for a personal relationship with his Father/God. I recommend this book to everyone.
An Instrument in the Hands of the Master Nov 1, 2006
I was so impressed by this well written account of D.L. Moody's life. Lyle Dorsett penetrates deep into what made Moody tick and how God used this man in such an awesome way. A Passion for Souls, inspires me to hit the streets with the Gospel harder than ever. D.L. Moody was truly a man on fire for God and he had such a passion to reach the lost at any cost. I admire the fact that the author does not hold back many of Moody's shortcomings as well. I learned from this biography that God can use anyone in his wonderful work when they heed his call, and I pray that many will read this story of such a man and do the same by God's Grace. Get this book if you want a new fire kindled within you to reach the lost.
A Smashing Good Biography of a Great Saint! Jul 13, 2006
I felt like I really got to know who D.L. Moody was and what he set his heart on. His life was amazingly full and he sought God's will in everything he did. Of course, he was human and had his faults, which Dorsett shows us, but God used even his failings for His own glory. Truly a reflective, inspiring biography!
DL Moody & Eric Dahlbeck have it all WRONG!!!!! Jun 22, 2002
Moody had it all wrong! He inherited only an institutional understanding of the Church, and saw salvation solely as an "indiviual" matter despite Matt 18:20. Now, no human oraganization can save. But Moody never witnessed nor understood the Church as a Divine-human Community, Moody couldn't see how someone was redeemed 'in' the Body of Christ. To him it was a personal matter. Moody logically did not call the new disciple to see his commitment to Christ as an equal commitment to his brethren in the 'ekklesia'. The new convert was only taught that his primary concern was to "win the lost" and maintain his own private holiness. Salvation is not instant Philippians 2:12[in this verse the word is 'salvation' NOT santification] and 3:12 reveal this. As for reviewer Eric Dahlbeck is conscerned he doesn't want you to know about Romans 2:6-13, (JAMES 2:17), Titus 3:8, Acts 10:35, 2 Corinth 5:10, 1 Peter 4:7-11. And I invite him to e-mail me. Just because someone speaks with enthusiasm, doesn't mean they speak the truth. Sorry folks.
