What a book!!!
If you have to read 1 book this year, read this one. It's hardly 50 pages long. But what a book!
I lived for myself, I thought for myself,
For myself, and none beside.
Just as if Jesus had never lived,
As if He had never died.

Henry Drummond, (1854-1907) was a Canadian poet and physician according to the old world book encyclopedia I checked. I just had to find out more about this author after listening to this book, The Greatest Thing In The World. He started giving this lecture in 1884 about 1 Corinthians 13.

This book is truly one of the best books I've ever read. Henry Drummond's discussion about love reminds me of a dance. He lights back and forth on the topics. He does not try to be exhaustive in his description or his thoughts. He merely puts forth some thoughts on some of a huge subject matter. I just happen to find that those thoughts are rather beautiful. Enjoy.

Greatest Thing in the World and Other Addresses is wonderful book that should be read and reread over and over again. Love: The Greatest Thing in the World is based on I Corinthians 13 and the main reason for purchasing the book. It is a great book to share with others.

I heard it can be found for free online. The book I have was forwarded by D. L. Moody and contains seven stories in all.

These are incredible lectures, especially the Greatest thing in the World. It could be called life changing. As with most five star books I put up I can't properly describe the way I feel about this in a review. But that is one lecture that everyone should read.
Christopher Lewis Kozoriz
THOUGH I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am
become as a sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of
prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all
faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not LOVE I am nothing. And
though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be
burned, and have not Love, it profiteth me nothing.
Love suffereth long, and is kind;
Love envieth not;
Love vau
