From the 1890's to 1939 Jim Pendergast and his younger brother Tom built and ran the notorious political machine of Kansas City.

A passion for souls : the life of D.L. Moody by Lyle W Dorsett( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dwight Lyman Moody was the greatest evangelist of the 19th century. In the pre-television era, he traveled more than one million miles to preach the gospel to more than 100 million people. Although equipped with just four years of formal schooling, Moody launched ministries in education and publishing that remain vital and fruitful today. Moody had a passion for souls. Yet with all of his accomplishments for God, D.L. Moody remained a humble man. His greatest riches were found in the love of his Lord and the souls that had been changed for the glory of God. In these pages, today's believers will find a model of biblical passion, vision, and commitment. Lyle Dorsett reveals the heart of this great evangelist, recounting his life and realistically probing his strengths, weaknesses, virtues, faults, triumphs, struggles and motivations to find a man after God's own heart"--Publisher description
