In the mid 2000s I served as Director of Media Operations for The Moody Church in Chicago. One day we were cleaning out the storeroom and I found a box of cassette tapes. After perusing the sermon titles and dates I quickly realized that I had discovered a treasure trove of teaching from famous preachers of the past.
In an attempt to preserve these works for the benefit of future generations, I am making these classics available on the internet at no charge. I have repaired the audio to the best of my ability using state of the art restoration technology. In this edition I am unable to repair the audio adequately, but I did the best I could.
You are also free to copy and distribute the material to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
