One Sunday evening, D. L. Moody and friends were gathered around a fire. Some guests urged Moody to expound on some portion of Scripture. Being tired after the services of the day, he gruffly told them to ask Henry Drummond, who was also present. After some urging, Drummond finally produced a small New Testament from his hip pocket, opened it to the thirteenth chapter of 1 Corinthians and, without any notes, began to speak on the subject of love. Moody said, 'It seemed to me that I had never heard anything so beautiful, and I determined not to rest until I brought Henry Drummond to Northfield to deliver that address. Since then I have requested the principles of my schools to have it read before the students every year.'
Over the decades, this teaching has become one of the best-loved and most inspiring messages on love ever written.
Other writings of Drummond in this unique collection include:
The Program of Christianity
The City Without a Church
The Changed Life
Pax Vobiscum (Peace with You)
Through this dynamic message, we can experience the beauty of lasting love in all its fullness and learn how to bring God's peace and joy to those around us.
