The pages of this book offer a small library of the finest lines spoken by D L Moody. For all seasons of the year, his thought and reflections are a two-fold treasure: welcome for those who know his legacy of faith, and those just discovering the spiritual wealth stored in his writings. As a herald of heaven’s hope in the late 19th century, Moody’s reflections hold eloquence, wisdom, humour and deep insight. They speak to our time-in ways that are timeless.
