|The Greatest Thing in the World Oct 8, 2005|
|This give a very thoughtful explaination of how I Corenthians:13 can be applied to ones life.|
|This little book changed my outlook on life Aug 28, 2005|
|I was given this book in college. I set it on the shelf and didn't pick it up for 4 years. When I read this little book that you can read in one night, I really felt moved. I tried to look at everyone with love. In my profession as a teacher, it really helped! I saw the troublesome kids with eyes of love, and their rebellion melted away. I am reading it again this year before school starts to get my head in the right place. Love is more important than being right. Love is more important than believing the right things. Love is more important than anything you say. Love is the message that people will remember about you. |
|If you liked this book... Jul 28, 2005|
|If you liked the message of this book, check out "Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. The healings truths that both books offer are extremely powerful and life-changing. The Science and Health is much bigger and is a great book to read and study in depth - but can also be used just when you need an uplifting thought, much like Drummond's book. |
|An Essential Message Feb 23, 2005|
|This book has been a treasured friend since it was given to me as a gift many years ago. Drummond, a nineteenth century Christian missionary, lays out his case that Love is the key ingredient to a successful life with precision, logic and eloquence. Usually a logical approach fails to stir one's soul but his writing is as beautiful as it is persuasive. It is also an urgent message for us as individuals and as a society. We cannot call ourselves Christians if Love is subsumed by self-righteousness, hatred and judgement. I suspect anyone of any denomination will find it useful as a guide through our world's troubled waters.|
|Everyone Should Have This Book May 13, 2004|
|In response to the person who said this book was dangerous because it downplayed faith when compared to Love. Does he/she truly believe Faith is greater than Love??? Think about that! I would say that for once the author of this book had a real grasp on what Jesus stood for and if more people lived their life with the values in this book the world would be a much, much more peaceful and loving place. |
Too many people get side tracked with worrying about their faith and thinking everyone else needs a strong faith rather than practicing what really matters in life. What really matters to Jesus. In my opinion it's been too much emphasis on faith that has caused most of the problems in this world and not enough emphasis on simply loving your neighbor. The book teaches that it's not just about doing good deeds, but practicing love until it comes natural. In order to know God you must truly feel love flowing through you as a force so powerful you can't help but be profoundly moved.
Drummond emphasizes that it takes an incredible amount of effort and time to truly learn how to love in a mature way. In the way God loves. If you practice Love and begin to truly feel Love and see the good you are doing in the world then most certainly a strong faith will follow. The only way to truly know God is to feel love, for God is love. Love comes first and faith second for without love as Paul's said "...if I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love I am nothing."
In my humble opinion this book truly is a masterpiece and perhaps the most powerful and beautiful book ever written. Jesus' teachings were simple not complex and if you own this book and follow it's simple teachings you will never need to open your Bible again. Yes, this book is more powerful than the Bible because the church did not corrupt it, and it expresses the simple teachings of Jesus to perfection.
To have love in your heart is by far the greatest complement to God for God is love. The only problem is that if everyone had this book and followed its simple teachings it would put the TV evangelists and powerful churches out of business. The teachings of Jesus were simple and they are all you need.
