Without question, Henry Drummond's small book on love has been one of the most inspirational ever printed! During the more than 115 years since it was published by Dwight Moody, the booklet sold millions of copies and changed the lives of countless Christians and non-Christians. This newly formatted Pure Gold Classic version of THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD, is in Drummond's original language, which is as stunning and elegant in its simplicity today as it was when he first spoke it. His message is clear. Love is the greatest thing in the world, life's richest experience, and the ultimate statement of our faith. All Scripture verses are from the King James Version of the Bible.
This volume includes two bonus works from Drummond's collection:
Drummond explores the topic of rest in a Christian's life - rest that is dynamic and filled with faith. Drummond says, "For in Rest there are always two elements - tranquillity and energy, silence and turbulence, creation and destruction, fearlessness and fearfulness. This it was in Christ."
The Christian's Program
". . .as clearly as there comes to the growing child a knowledge of its father's part in the world, and a sense of what real life means, there must come to every Christian whose growth is true some richer sense of the meaning of Christianity and a larger view of Christ's purpose for mankind. To miss this is to miss the whole splendour and glory of Christ's religion." - Henry Drummond
What is the Greatest Thing in the World? According to St. Paul it is not Faith but Love; The Contrast; The Analysis; The Defense.
Henry Drummond (1851-1897), an evangelist and lecturer, was born in Sterling, Scotland on 7 August 1851. He was educated at Edinburgh University and, in 1877, became a lecturer on science at the Free Church College of Glasgow. Drummond was a geologist and explorer who 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 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.
Drummond was the author of numerous books, and is best remembered today for his 1874 meditation on love, The Greatest Thing in the World, which lays out the foundation of the gospel: that love, of God and of one another, is our highest calling.
