In this little devotional book, the charming Scottish evangelist meditates upon what he
considers the greatest thing in the world—love. His meditations focus on and draw from I
Corinthians 13. Drummond finds that godly love has nine ingredients: patience, kindness,
generosity, humility, courtesy, unselfishness, a good temper, guilelessness, and sincerity.
Just as Drummond’s contemporary readers did, clergy and laypersons alike still have a
fondness for Drummond’s edifying words. The Greatest Thing in the World embodies its
contents, sharing love’s wisdom with warmth and honesty.
