This book by the famed American evangelist and revivalist D.L. Moody is a Christian evangelical book. In his own words Moody states, "If I could only make men understand the real meaning of the words of the apostle John—"God is love," I would take that single text, and would go up and down the world proclaiming this glorious truth. If you can convince a man that you love him you have won his heart. If we really make people believe that God loves them, how we should find them crowding into the kingdom of heaven! The trouble is that men think God hates them; and so they are all the time running away from Him."
