Who was this man? A sterling philanthropist and educator, D.
L. Moody was also the finest evangelist in the nineteenth century—bringing the
transformative message of the gospel before 100 million people on both sides of
the Atlantic in an age long before radio and television. Thousands of
underprivileged young people were educated in the schools he established.
Before the Civil War, he went to a place no one else would: the slums of
Chicago called Little Hell. The mission he started there, in an abandoned saloon,
in time drew children in the hundreds and prompted a visit from President-elect

great souls of history. Download and start listening now!
