The Greatest Thing in the World, by Henry Drummond


A short and simple treatment of I Corinthians 13. Drummond doesn't really break any new ground here, but he does a good job laying out the importance of love (paramount), the source of love (God, who is love), and the characteristics of a loving person (patience, kindness, etc.). Nothing earth shattering here, but definitely worth the few minutes it takes to read it. And probably a good resource for those who are less enamored of long complex treatises on biblical concepts.

I was sort of annoyed by the periodic ALLCAPS phrases--they interrupted the flow of the writing and honestly were sort of confusing. But other than that, it's a decent little book on, as Drummond notes, the most important thing in the world.
