Do not be deceived by the attractiveness of this world. It will cheat you and destroy you. -from "Warning" Perhaps the greatest American evangelist of the 19th century, Dwight Moody inspired millions with his sermons. And though more than a century separates us from his fiery defense of the Bible, Moody's words reflect an orthodox religious outlook similar to the fundamentalist Christianity that is dramatically influencing our culture in the 21st century. With unwavering certainty, Moody discusses: . what aspects of the Bible "no infidel or skeptic will dare to deny" . the danger of "false teachers" . why Christianity is not responsible for hypocritical Christians . examples from history that prove the truth of the Bible . and more.

American evangelist DWIGHT LYMAN MOODY (1837-1899) was born in New England, the child of a large working-class family. A religious conversion as an adult led him to found a ministry in Chicago, to work as a battlefield missionary during the Civil War, and eventually to lead massive evangelical crusades during the 1870s and 80s in both England and the United States.
He found Christian schools and a Christian publishing house, which published his many nondenominational evangelical tracts.
