"GOD HAS GIVEN ME A LIFEBOAT AND SAID... 'MOODY, SAVE ALL YOU CAN.'"
Dwight L. Moody could be called the "Billy Graham" of his generation. But a more appropriate appellation might be "father of the American evangelical movement," for without Moody, the reaching of souls worldwide would likely have occurred decades later.
Moody's self-described "lifeboat" set sail for Great Britain in 1873 on a modest evangelistic tour.
His ministry...was simply to save souls...
Appealing to audiences abroad with his heart-warming stories, Moody meant with immense success and returned a national hero. From then on this shoe salesman from Massachusetts with a heart for America's struggling masses would not be silenced until he had realized "the evangelization of the world in this generation."
Characteristic of Moody - and of "Graham" a generation later - was his desire to work independently of church denominations. His ministry, without elaborate theological embellishment, was simply to save souls, and to that end, his vessel was never ashore.
