You have life before you. Once only you can live it. What is the noblest object of desire, the supreme gift to covet? THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD is perhaps the most famous exposition of Paul's message of love to the Corinthian church. Scottish writer Henry Drummond wrote this short meditation on love in 1874; widely read and quoted in his lifetime, it sold over twelve million copies and remains a much-loved devotional classic today. THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD lays out the foundation of the gospel: that love, of God and of one another, is our highest calling. This new edition, with a foreword by Norman Drummond, is for all who seek to live a life of love.

Good in good dust jacket. Our goal with every sale is customer satisfaction, so please buy with confidence. Every order is shipped the same day or the next day. This is a used book in good condition and may show some signs of use or wear.
Know many reviews I read said this book was excellent. This portion of scripture 1 Corinthians 13 is wonderful to read anytime but, and this is just my opinion, I have read other commentaries on the same verses and they spoke in more depth than this book. Always worth reading though just in case it speaks to you in a different way!

One of the Greatest Books EVER
Drummond does one of the most incredible jobs of summarizing and then explaining this thing called love. Truly love is more than a feeling and his practical exegesis of 1 Corinthians 13 is one of the finest I have ever read. I have bought over 30 of these and given them out to those who are interested in finding real love. Love immanates from the One who demonstrated love to us through His death on the cross, Jesus Christ for every one of us. God is love. We can love because He first loved us. Read 1 Corinthians 13 and then read this book. Well worth the money you spend. I have not read a better explanation of love anywhere. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

the absolute greatest
This book which has stood the test of time, is awarded the title "a Classic". Start to finish this brief book will flow through your mind like a mountain trout stream. Running to an Ocean of life and hope. A must read for all who are serious about life! Do not buy only one copy. Drummond's masterpiece on the "Agape" chapter of First Corinthians 13 (the one you heard at the wedding) is one you both have to have a copy on your shelve and must give away. Loved by all, who have ever pondered the need for love. The one book I have found myself wanting to read and re-read for over ten years.
