'The secrets of Dwight L. Moody's power were; First, a definite experience of Christ's saving grace; he had passed out of death into life, and he knew it. Secondly, he believed in the divine authority of the scriptures; the Bible was to him the voice of God. Thirdly, he was baptised with the Holy Spirit. Fourthly, he was a man of prayer; he believed in a mighty and unfettered God. Fifthly, he believed in works, in ceaseless effort, in the power of organisation. He expected the supernatural to work, but through the natural. He hitched his wagon to a star, but he always kept the wheels on the ground, and the axles well oiled.'
'He lost his life for the sake of Christ and the gospel, yet how wondrously he found it in Him.'
'The world still needs the gospel that Moody preached. Nothing will ever take its place. It is God's unchanging message to lost mankind, and wherever faithfully proclaimed, it proves itself to the dynamic of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.'

NOT A DAY DAWNS OR PASSES WITHOUT SOME ALLUSION TO MOODY BEING MADE BY A PREACHER OR A BIBLE TEACHER; NOT A WEEK COMES AND GOES UNMARKED BY SOME MENTION OF ONE OR ANOTHER OF THE INSTITUTIONS HE FOUNDED.
