Evangelist Dwight L. Moody relates the story of how he benefited from one particularly vivid and crucial message. "One Sunday evening as we sat around the fire, my friends asked me to read and expound some portion of Scripture. Being tired after the services of the day, I told them to ask Henry Drummond, who was one of the party. He opened his Bible to the 13th chapter of First Corinthians, and began to speak on the subject of love. It seemed to me that I had never heard anything so beautiful. Since then I have requested the principals of the schools to have it read before the students every year." Drummond's memorable homily on love--the supreme good--retains all its original freshness and vitality in this oral rendition.… (més)

I love this little gem of a book, and the narrator is first rate! ( )
  Carolfoasia | Dec 22, 2012 |
The Greatest Thing in the World is taken from an address Henry Drummond, a Scottish evangelist, delivered to a gathering of friends in England in 1884. It is based on the 13th chapter of First Corinthians (the Love chapter). Prefaced by D. L. Moody, it’s a compact book consisting of an overview chapter and three others, which break the scriptural text down into as many parts.

The inspiration behind this work includes the fact that the author was a geologist/explorer by profession. “As a Christian, he combined his knowledge of science with his understanding of the Creator and His many diverse creations.” In Chapter 3, Love Analyzed, he draws from his professional background to make a remarkable analysis. Using the way a prism breaks down light into many components of color, he demonstrates the way Paul breaks the spectrum of love down into the elements of patience, kindness, generosity, etc. The author goes on to write a section about each of these attributes. They all speak to our “horizontal” relationship with man as opposed to our “vertical” relationship with God. The prism illustration is a very compelling one; and I consider it to be the highlight of this book. The author begins Chapter 4, Love Defended, with Paul’s reason for singling out love as the supreme possession. Despite the many things man may focus on, love lasts. It never fails.

The biblical truths examined in this book will give you a fresh perspective on life and love. Totally convinced of love’s power in everyday life, Drummond challenges believers to read the actual text of 1st Corinthians 13 once a week for the next three months. This compact book could easily function in today’s market as a commentary, which I’ve learned to refrain from using. The author’s treatment of 1st Corinthians 13, however, is a rare exception. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

This is one of two inspirational books that captured my attention as a child perusing the family bookcase. The original volume was given to my Dad in the 1950's by our pastor who inscribed a lovely sentiment on the inside cover. Needless to say, that keepsake is packed away in a memory box. My purchased copy is well-worn. I think I’ll look for a leather-bound version. (1981, 59 Pages) ( )
