Item description for The Greatest Thing in the World (Classic Addresses) by Henry Drummond & Paul Eggington...
Overview Drummond's memorable homily on love-the supreme good- retains all its original freshness and vitality in this oral rendition. Widely quoted and read, his message on love from First Corinthians sold over 12 million copies. Involving God's two greatest commands to love Him and love one another, this message is just as needed today as it was back then.
Publishers Description 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.

A Book Forming a Part of the Spiritual Roots of Alcoholics Anonymous Jul 16, 2008
A.A. literature and independent research make clear the relevance of this little book to the A.A., 12-Step, Recovery picture. See Dr. Bob's Library, 3rd ed.[[ASIN:1885803257 ; DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers ; The Books Early AAs Read for Spiritual Growth [[ASIN:1885803265 ]; The Akron Genesis of Alcoholics Anonymous[[ASIN:1885803176 ; and Turning Point: A History of Early A.A.'s Spiritual Roots and Successes.[[ASIN:1885803079. A.A.'s co-founder Dr. Bob said hundreds of time that 1 Corinthians 13 was an absolutely essential part of the early A.A. program. He thought so much of this Drummond study that he circulated The Greatest Thing in the World widely among the A.A. pioneers. It was part of his library. It was part of his expression of the meaning of love. For that's what the Corinthians chapter and the Drummond book are about.
love the book, this edition is too big Jun 28, 2008
I heard Larry Burkett highly praise this book years ago so I got one. I agree, this is an awesome book. read just a few pages and it will change your heart to love others more, no matter how grouchy you are at the time. I prefer the older editions of this book, they fit in my purse better
Beautiful Sermon on Love Aug 13, 2007
Hadn't read Henry Drummond's book in years, but I recently picked it up again and re-read it and found it had lost none of its power for me. This book can be read in twenty minutes, but it's a twenty minutes that can change your perception of life and love.
Drummond, who was an inspiring liberal-thinking Christian of the 1800's, divides Paul's chapter on love in First Corinthians into three parts: "love contrasted," "love analyzed," and "love defended." He shows us what love isn't, shows us what it is, and defends it as the "greatest thing in the world." He helps us understand that it is not a burden to love - it's the easiest thing in the world!
This book is one of the most inspiring pieces of Christian literature I've ever read.
Fantastic Book! Jun 8, 2007
This book by Henry Drummond is a much-neglected meditation on I Corinthians 13. With kindness and gentle encouragement, Drummond walks the reader through the characteristics of love we all fail so miserably to exhibit in our own lives. Well-written and short, this book should be on the shelf of anyone who is trying to live Scripture.
Something to Share Apr 2, 2007
My brother sent me a copy. He liked it so much he brought fifty copies to share with friends. I in turn have purchased copies to give away. It is the Sermon on the Mount, The Gospel of John, and First John all in one by way of expounding upon Paul's great love expose. Gary Trawick.
