Henry Drummond was one of the first writers to try to reconcile religion and science. His evangelical lectures drew standing-room-only crowds in the biggest and smallest venues throughout the world. His messages are as inspiring today as they were when he first delivered them. This omnibus edition contains all of his most important works. Here are dozens of his lectures, papers, addresses and books. Included are Stones Rolled Away and Other Addresses, The New Evangelism and Other Papers, The Ideal Life and Other Unpublished Addresses, The Ascent of Man, Natural Law in the Spiritual World, The Greatest Thing in the World and Other Addresses, A Life for A Life and Other Addresses, The Changed Life, The City Without a Church, Beautiful Thoughts From Henry Drummond, The Program of Christianity, and much, much more.
"The question you will naturally ask at the outset is, "What is the new Evangelism?" Now that is a question that I cannot answer. I do not know what the new Evangelism is, and it is because I do not know that I write this paper. I write because I ought to know, and am trying to know. Many here, and all the most earnest minds of our Church, are anxiously asking this question, and each who has once asked it feels it to be one of the chief objects of his life to answer it." Included here are "The New Evangelism: and its Relation to Cardinal Doctrines," "The Method of the New Theology, and some of its Applications," "Survival of the Fittest," "The Third Kingdom," "The Problem of Foreign Missions," "The Contribution of Science to Christianity," and "Spiritual Diagnosis."
Evangelist Dwight L. Moody relates the story of how he benefited from one particularly vivid and crucial message. "One Sunday evening as we sat around the fire, my friends asked me to read and expound some portion of Scripture. Being tired after the services of the day, I told them to ask Henry Drummond, who was one of the party. He opened his Bible to the 13th chapter of First Corinthians, and began to speak on the subject of love. It seemed to me that I had never heard anything so beautiful. Since then I have requested the principals of the schools to have it read before the students every year." Drummond's memorable homily on love--the supreme good--retains all its original freshness and vitality in this oral rendition.
