Greatest Thing in the World And Other Addresses

Author: Drummond, Henry (1851-1897)

In this little devotional book, the charming Scottish evangelist meditates upon what he considers the greatest thing in the world—love. His meditations focus on and draw from I Corinthians 13. Drummond finds that godly love has nine ingredients: patience, kindness, generosity, humility, courtesy, unselfishness, a good temper, guilelessness, and sincerity. Just as Drummond’s contemporary readers did, clergy and laypersons alike still have a fondness for Drummond’s edifying words. The Greatest Thing in the World embodies its contents, sharing love’s wisdom with warmth and honesty.
