Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


Just a few months after his death, Drummond’s family, friends, and followers celebrated his life by publishing a collection of his sermons. In addition to these sermons, the volume contains two memorial sketches of the beloved evangelist by W. Robertson Nicoll and Ian Maclaren. Drummond tackles such topics as the nature of Christ, salvation, guilt, and sin; in light of these things, he points toward how Christians can live lives that please God. Knowing that discerning God’s will for one’s life can seem daunting, Drummond spoke multiple times on prayer and how to listen for God’s voice. Especially admired by young people during his life, Drummond’s warm character shines through his words.
