Item description for President Lincoln Listened: A Story of Compassion by D. L. Moody...

Overview
On a cold and frosty night a young man fights to stay awake as he struggles to keep an eye out for the enemy. The American civil war is in full swing and one family among many thousands are desperately waiting for their son to come home. That night he falls asleep at his post and his punishment is going to be the firing squad. There is nothing the young man's family can do to change the outcome ... except maybe one thing. His sister remembers reading the life of Abraham Lincoln. She is sure that if she could just meet him and tell him, face to face, what was about to happen to her brother he would do all he could to help save her brother's life. Once the President knows how much her parents love her brother and how they are all longing for him to come home surely her plea will be answered? D L Moody tells the touching story of one young soldier's narrow escape from death in a way that focuses your mind on Christ and his compassion for sinners. If Abraham Lincoln could show mercy on a young soldier and his family surely our Lord Jesus Christ can show compassion to those who turn to him.

More About D. L. Moody


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! On February 5, 1837, in Northfield, Massachusetts, Dwight Lyman Moody (1837-1899) was born, the sixth in what would be a family of nine children. His father died when Moody was only a tender child, leaving little provision for the family. Hence, Moody learned the value of hard work at an early age. An ambitious Moody went to Boston at the age of seventeen, where he became a successful salesman in his uncle's shoe store. His uncle made him promise to go to church, a promise that he faithfully kept, and he was won to the Lord by his Sunday school teacher.In 1856 Moody went to Chicago, where he continued to succeed as a shoe salesman. His fervor in selling shoes was exceeded, however, by his zeal in winning souls, and he began to pack the pews of the church with young men. At the age of twenty-three he devoted himself to full-time Christian work. Because of his poor grammar, his first attempts at public speaking were not well received by all: one deacon told him that he would serve God best by keeping still. Nonetheless, Moody persevered, and he became famous nationwide for his Sunday school work. He was also known for his ministry to the soldiers during the Civil War; many were brought to Christ through his meetings and through his distribution of Bibles and tracts. In 1867 Moody traveled to Great Britain to learn new methods in Christian work. It was there that his heart was stirred and forever changed by these words, spoken to him by a well-known evangelist: "The world has yet to see what God will do withthe man who is fully consecrated to Him." Moody determined to be that man.The road of full commitment was not without trials. In 1871 the church that Moody pastored, the largest church in Chicago, was destroyed in the Chicago fire. But in the wake of this disaster, Moody received the filling of the Holy Spirit. Never before had he experienced such a mighty revelation of God's love. After this empowering of the Spirit, Moody went on to accomplish even more for Christ. He held meetings in America, England, and Scotland, where thousands were in attendance and many were brought to Christ, and founded Moody Bible Institute.When Moody died in 1899, he left a rich legacy: three Christian schools, a Christian publishing business, and a million souls won for Christ. The day of his death was not a sad day; rather, Moody exclaimed, "This is my triumph; this is my coronation day!"
