Handley Carr Glyn Moule was the youngest of eight sons of the vicar of Fordington, Dorchester. He was educated at home with his brothers prior to attending university at Cambridge, where he excelled in his studies. He was ordained in 1867 and was curate at Fordington before being appointed as sub-dean of Trinity College, Cambridge in 1873. He became first principal of Ridley Hall Theological College, Cambridge, in 1881, and Norrisian Professor of Divinity in 1899. In 1901, he succeeded B.F. Westcott as Bishop of Durham.
Moule was a convinced evangelical, but was understanding of other views. He represented evangelicals at the Round Table Conference on Holy Communion (1900) and, in 1908, chaired the missionary section of the Pan-Anglican Congress. He was closely associated with the Keswick Convention. Although he was a profound scholar, he could speak and write for ordinary people. He wrote many hymns and poems; and his works include expositions and commentaries on nearly all the Epistles, as well as books on devotion and a down-to-earth work on theology, Outlines of Christian Doctrine.

To him the Church was inestimably precious, but the Lord was more. And all his thoughts about work, autho ...read

He is as much alive in human life as the worldling is, and more. He cordially loves his dear ones; he is the open-hearted friend, the helpful neighbor, the loving and loyal citizen and subject, the unattentive and intelligent worker in his daily path of duty.
