"I thought that I had already thought about everything you could think about Love when Henry Drummond's sermon fell into my hands. My life changed a lot from the moment I read the words in this book and tried to put his teaching into practice." Paulo Coelho

"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal."

At some point, all of us have heard this passage from St. Paul's Letter to the Corinthians. But do we really understand his message?

At the end of the 19th century, the young missionary Henry Drummond was asked to replace a famous preacher. Though at the beginning he did not convince the audience, they were soon captivated by his analysis of the words of the Apostle Paul.

This sermon, The Greatest Thing in the World, has become a classic and is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful texts ever written on love. Drummond broke it down into the following nine elements: patience, kindness, generosity, humility, gentleness, dedication, tolerance, sincerity and innocence.

Contrary to what we are used to hearing, the greatest treasure in the spiritual life is not faith, but love. No matter what your religious beliefs are, this feeling is, without doubt, the most rewarding way to live.

In The Supreme Gift, Paulo Coelho adapts Henry Drummond's text, offering a real and powerful message that will help us incorporate love into our daily life and experience all its transformational power in our lives.

Paulo Coelho, once again, manages to take a simple concept and dissect in such a way that I am forever changed. In this adaptation of Henry Drummond’s story, the topic of love as it’s spelled out in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians is applied to every day life. In this, we are all given reason to pause as we reflect on the areas we are failing to love, and the simple ways we can make that change. The book is short, but it’s a heavy read.

What an amazing sermon coupled with Paulo Coelho’s interpretation and this book is an absolute home run. Based on the famous Love Chapter in 2nd Corinthians, it has literally redefined my definition of love and the purpose of my life.

This is Coelho presenting and commenting on a sermon given by another person. While it was interesting and thought provoking, it did not have the traditional Coelho approach. I would not rank it with his other books, mainly because I very much like the way he presents his thoughts and stories and this was very different.

Love is All

 on December 7, 2014

In our daily conversation we talk about loving this wine or that restaurant or a specific car or beach. While descriptive of our inclination and choices, ascribing love to our likes cheapens the word and leaves us empty for the next thing that will bring us pleasure. In The Supreme Gift, Coelho rectifies our understanding of love by explaining it in the context of an ancient letter included in the most popular book of all times. In reading his words you will understand how to live life to the fullest.
