Product Description


Some men take an occasional journey into the thirteenth chapter of 1 Corinthians, but Henry Drummond was a man who lived there constantly. As you read what he terms the analysis of love, you found that all its ingredients were interwoven into his daily life.―D. L. Moody

The simple beauty and positive truths of this dynamic message will encourage readers to practice the power and blessing of love in every area of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless practical advice for here and now May 16 2000
By the time I had read this book, I'd already read countless books and essays on religion and truth and love. This book offered me something extra - and opened my eyes to a wonderful new truth - mainly this - that love is enough.
Never having been trained in the social graces, I always felt like a bit of a clutz in social settings such as dinner parties and even simple get-togethers.
Drummond makes the point that if you have love - if you can feel and express love - you have it all. So instead of focusing on which fork to use for the shrimp and salad, I started focusing on how much God loved me and everyone around me.
And that little simple truth enabled me to feel more at ease in every circumstance and in every situation.
Drummond's book is about grace, love, truth, Universal spiritual laws - it's got it all. From little things (like social graces) to big things (like loving our fellow man - irrespective of his lot in life) this book will change your life.
This should be required reading for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inspirational Read March 29 2015
Format:Imitation Leather|Verified Purchase
Written and delivered in the late nineteenth century (circa. 1874), Henry

Drummond's essay is as significant today as it was in his time and will

continue to be relevant because of its pure elegance. Based upon Paul's

letter to the Corinthians (specifically 1 Cor. 13) this essay encapsulates

what love is and is not in all its manifestations. To read, reflect and

inwardly digest Drummond's astute analysis of Paul's letter is to enter

into the realm of thoughtfulness. I hesitate using the word mindfulness as

its current use in western culture is ambivalent at best and easily

misconstrued. Drummond's essay demands thought. Whether the reader agrees

or disagrees with the precepts of Christianity, it would be wise to lay

aside any bias and/or prejudice and allow this brilliant essay to challenge

one's notion of love.

3.0 out of 5 stars good thoughts on love, but a dangerous book! Aug. 9 2001
i believe this to be a dangerous book, as it seems to hold up love as the greatest purpose in life, and minimizes the value of faith in Christ. even when it talk about salvation, this book proposes love to be the requirement rather than faith. there are some good ideas in this book, but for someone to read this book who is not solid in biblical theology, especially of salvation, this book could easily lead them astray, confirming them in their belief "if i am a loving, good person, then i go to heaven" rather than understanding that faith in Christ and making Christ Lord is key. love is important, but often God's version of love is not truly understood so that it is dangerous to make our salvation dependant on the extent to which we love!
