Reviving the Legacy of D.L. Moody in New England
Times have changed! Today I stood at two historic places in American religious history. The first was in Northampton, Massachusetts, at the church of the 18th century evangelist Jonathan Edwards, who is known for his message, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” And the second was at the grave of the 19th century evangelist D.L. Moody, buried in Northfield, Massachusetts. Although these evangelists were very different, they both preached to large crowds the same Gospel of salvation from sin. Whole cities were affected through their faithful preaching. Today, Edward’s church is an “affirming” church which long ago changed … Read More >
God Directed Arrows
He was a member of a church but not a Christian. Sad to say, the drink habit had gotten the best of him. Naturally his wife remonstrated but seemingly to no avail. He became tired of her nagging, as he called it. He stood upon the front porch of their home with his grip packed. “Good-bye,” said he, “you are saying good-bye to this man for the last time.” His wife replied, “Good-bye, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.” The latter remark clearly indicated that when sober he was a very kind person but when intoxicated, like multitudes of others, he … Read More >

The list of his accomplishments is long. Wiersbe was a wordsmith … Read More >

June 1908 Heart to Heart Talk
The time for open air work has come. Are you ready for it? The Bible you love is an open air book. The great revival under Ezra began in the open air, as from his pulpit of wood he read the Scriptures and expounded their meaning. The angels gave a snatch of heaven’s music and announced the birth of Jesus to the shepherds in the open air. Christ preached His greatest sermon in the open air and proclaimed the gospel to the woman by Jacob’s well in the open air. Most of His miracles and teaching took place in the … Read More >
