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.
