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 Included are Stones Rolled Away and Other Addresses, The New Evangelism and Other Papers, The Ideal Life and Other Unpublished Addresses, The Ascent of Man, Natural Law in the Spiritual World, The Greatest Thing in the World and Other Addresses, A Life for A Life and Other Addresses,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.
Drummond's Classic is as stunning and elegant in its simplicity today as it was when he first spoke it. His message is clear. Love is the greatest thing in the world, life's richest experience, and the ultimate statement of our faith.
'You have life before you. Once only you can live it. What is the noblest object of desire, the supreme gift to covet?' THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD is perhaps the most famous exposition of Paul's message of love to the Corinthian church. Scottish writer Henry Drummond wrote this short meditation on love in 1874; widely read and quoted in his lifetime, it sold over twelve million copies and remains a much-loved devotional classic today. THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD lays out the foundation of the gospel: that love, of God and of one another, is our highest calling. This new edition, with a foreword by Norman Drummond, is for all who seek to live a life of love.
The founders of the modern recovery movement, including Bill Wilson, Bob Smith, and other early AAs, were deeply influenced by a handful of inspirational authors, from whom they received practical guidance, key insights, and concrete ideas. Their explorations of inspirational literature and useable spiritual methods gave rise to the program of spiritual self-help now practiced around the world as the twelve-step tradition.
Now, some of the core books that both inspired and were produced by the early twelve-steppers and recovery pioneers – including the first edition of the 1939 landmark Alcoholic Anonymous – are collected in this powerful resource, The Recovery Bible.
Here are early writings by the visionaries of recovery. Their work retains all of its impact and life-changing power – now at the ready for study, immediate guidance, and a lifetime of re-exploration in this one volume.
The Recovery Bible includes:
-Alcoholics Anonymous, the original 1939 landmark
- The Greatest Thing in the World by Henry Drummond
-In Tune with the Infinite by Ralph Waldo Trine
-The Mental Equivalent by Emmet Fox
- As a Man Thinketh by James Allen
-The 23rd and 91st Psalms
-Religion that Works by the Rev. Sam Shoemaker
-The Varieties of Religious Experience by William James
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.
