5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless practical advice for here and now May 16 2000
Format:Paperback
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars good thoughts on love, but a dangerous book! Aug. 9 2001
Format:Paperback
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!

It has a clear and simple explanation of Love from the Christian perspective that is too often clouded or forgotten through the politics of our world today. Read it for inspiration or to improve your expression of love.

This book was a gift to me as a Sunday School Teacher about 1969. I have read portions of it at different times for 30 years. This year I started reading in it again and cannot believe how fresh and exciting this message still is. It was like renewing an old friendship. The truth contained in this tiny book has spanned a century with no hint of ever waning. I recommend it fervently to anyone searching for meaning in today's culture.
