Robert Carter and Brothers, New York, 1870. Rare early edition of this work by Newton. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Presentation copy, inscribed by Moody on the front free endpaper, "To John Syme D.L. Moody My dear Brother be useful be earnest be fruitful and the blessing of God will rest on you." In good condition. Signatures of the legendary evangelist are rare, especially with such a lengthy inscription. Dwight Lyman Moody, also known as D. L. Moody, was an evangelist and publisher connected with the Holiness Movement, who founded the Moody Church, Northfield School and Mount Hermon School in Massachusetts, Moody Bible Institute and Moody Publishers. One of his most famous quotes was "Faith makes all things possible. Love makes all things easy." Moody gave up his lucrative boot and shoe business to devote his life to revivalism, working first in the Civil War with union troops through YMCA in the United States Christian commission. In Chicago, he built one of the major evangelical centers in the nation, which it is still active. Working with singer Ira Sankey, he toured the country and Britain Europe, drawing large crowds with a dynamic speaking style that preached God's love and friendship, kindness and forgiveness rather than hellfire and condemnation.
