May 15, 2015

It’s hard to believe that 15 years have passed since Moody published the first edition of An Anchor for the Soul. I remember being thrilled when the book sold around 60,000 copies in the first year.

Q: Where are you if you are in the most unchurched part of North America?A: You are in Quebec.
