Reviews - What do customers think about Dwight L. Moody: American Evangelist, 1837-1899?

Good analysis, but passionless  Oct 22, 2003
[Note: the book I read was the original 1969 hardbound edition, and some of what I have to say might not apply to later editions.]

To this day, Dwight Lyman Moody (1837-99) is remembered as one of the foremost evangelist and revivalist in American history. In this book, author James F. Findlay examines Moody's life in detail, surveying his life and times, and analyzing him and his world

One of the first things you encounter in this book is the foreword by Martin E. Marty. Mr. Marty is quite dismissive of D.L. Moody, calling him, "quaint and antique," and suggesting that while Moody himself is not worth studying, "readers will acquire accidental benefits along the way." I must admit that I cannot understand what this foreword is doing in this book.

As for the biography itself, Mr. Findlay does an excellent job of delving deeply into Moody and his times, giving the reader wonderful insights into the man. That said, though, the book is written in a scholarly manner, and is very dry reading. If you are looking for a biography written by someone who is excited by, and passionate about, D.L. Moody, then you will have to look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a biography of D.L. Moody that gives you a good look at his life and times, then this is the book for you.
