Publisher's Description

A Timeless Classic

One Sunday evening, D. L. Moody and friends were gathered around a fire. Some guests urged Moody to expound on a portion of Scripture. Being tired after the services of the day, he gruffly told them to ask Henry Drummond, who was also present. After some urging, Drummond finally produced a small New Testament from his hip pocket, opened it to the thirteenth chapter of 1 Corinthians and, without any notes, began to speak on the subject of love. Moody later wrote, "It seemed to me that I had never heard anything so beautiful, and I determined not to rest until I brought Henry Drummond to Northfield to deliver that address. Since then I have requested the principals of my schools to have it read before the students every year."

Over the decades, this teaching has become one of the best-loved and most inspiring messages on love ever written.

Other writings of Drummond in this unique collection include:

  • The Program of Christianity
  • The City Without a Church
  • The Changed Life
  • Pax Vobiscum (Peace with You)
  • Eternal Life
Through this dynamic message, we can experience the beauty of lasting love in all its fullness and learn how to bring God's peace and joy to those around us.

Author Bio

Henry Drummond (1851–1897) was born in Stirling, Scotland, and was educated at Edinburgh University. In 1877, he became a lecturer on natural science at the Free Church College of Glasgow. Drummond was a geologist and an explorer, and he spent a portion of time away from the classroom on scientific expeditions. As a Christian, he combined his knowledge of science with his understanding of God the Creator and His diverse creations. Beyond his work as a scientist, Drummond desired to see men and women come to Christ. He accompanied Dwight L. Moody on many of his revival missions in England and Ireland, and he presented an address on biblical love during this time that deeply affected Moody. Drummond wrote several works on science, but his most famous and enduring book, based on that address on love, is The Greatest Thing in the World.
