Dwight L. Moody, 'Mr Moody', was a hugely important Evangelical, of international significance. His influence on modern evangelicalism, and the interest in him, remain as strong today as in his own lifetime. This book provides an overall assessment of Moody's life and legacy, with particular attention to the international dimension. A range of chapters seeks to evaluate his theology, preaching, revivalist strategy, church music innovation, and global missionary work. While Moody has been the subject of many popular biographies, this is the first book to bring together international experts in all of Moody's many fields of activity and to provide a thoroughgoing evaluation of his life and achievements. It will establish Moody's historical importance and enduring legacy as a principal icon of the modern Evangelical movement. Dr Timothy George is Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama.
