Originally given as lectures at Northfield College in Northfield, Massachusetts, A College of Colleges contains 21 essays that address a variety of issues especially important to students, but also perennially important to all Christians. Highlights of this collection include five lectures from Henry Drummond that explore the study of the Bible, the student’s vocation, the resiliency of orthodox belief, sanctification, doubt, and love. Other lectures include missions’ reports, biblical studies, and other practical topics. A question-answer lecture with D. L. Moody, and a final chapter that presents segments of popular lectures given at the college conclude the collection.
T. J. Shanks was a widely sought-after editor. In addition to A College of Colleges, he edited several periodicals, including “The Spectator” and the “Canadian Royal Templar.”
Dwight L. Moody: Impressions and Facts is a succinct biography of the iconic evangelical leader that surveys the events of Moody’s life while refuting the critique’s of his ministry from some contemporaries. Henry Drummond covers Moody’s early life, ministry, educational work, and the results of his work—the truest measure, according to Drummond, of the authenticity of D. L. Moody’s ministry.
Henry Drummond (1851–1897) was educated at Edinburgh and was an evangelist in the Free Church of Scotland. An accomplished theologian and scientist, he lectured on the congruity between science and religion. A prolific author, his Natural Law in the Spiritual World and The Lowell Lectures on The Ascent of Man, were among the most unique and creative intellectual achievements of the nineteenth-century.
The Ascent of Man, a series of lectures originally given in Boston in 1893, presents Henry Drummond’s most controversial work. In these lectures, he explains the concept of evolution, the evidence in favor of it, and why the science behind it does not contradict Christian belief. Rather, Christianity and evolutionary theory agree, and both see humanity as collectively changing and progressing—intellectually and socially. Drummond rejects “the God of the gaps” theory, the belief that God can only be found in what human knowledge cannot explain, and argues that God is found in all creation. Similarly, he rejects mechanistic deism: the belief that God is no longer involved in the progressive outworking of creation. His work maintains both transcendence and immanence of God, with critical emphasis on historical Christian orthodoxy. Highly influential, Drummond’s ideas aligned him with many Christian intellectuals who believed in the congruity between science and faith, including Henry Ward Beecher, Charles Alfred Coulson, Lux Mundi, Aubrey Moore, C. S. Peirce, R. Laird Harris, and Charles Kingley.
The first in Henry Drummond’s classic lecture trilogy, The Greatest Thing in the World is an exposition on 1 Corinthians 13. Drummond begins with broad observations on Paul’s concept of love, and then narrows his focus to consider how the apostle contrasts Christian love with other human pursuits. He then approaches the text from an exegetical perspective, and unpacks the meaning of the various terms Paul uses to describe love such as “love is patient,” while documenting the structural relationships within Paul’s poetic prose.
Pax Vobiscum, or “peace be with you,” is the second in Henry Drummond’s classic lecture series, where he explains the role of rest in the Christian life. Drummond presents practical methods by which rest may be achieved, the role of faith, and how a person’s activities, commitments, and anxieties contribute to or detract from rest.
The final lecture in Henry Drummond’s classic lecture trilogy, The Changed Life explores the one indisputable argument that skeptics cannot refute: the transformation of the Christian’s life. This point, which he uses to refute Thomas Huxley’s arguments against Christianity, establishes the necessity of the changed life, its inexplicable quality as testimony to the gospel, and its congruity with human progression and evolutionary theory.
Published posthumously, and accompanied by a tribute from D. L. Moody, Henry Drummond’s addresses in this collection were first delivered to students at Northfield College. The first lecture—and the collection’s namesake—A Life for a Life takes a practical look at the concept of atonement while emphasizing the existential congruity between the spiritual and material realms. The second lecture, entitled Lessons from The Angelus, explores the spiritual power of art. Drummond considers a specific painting, Millet’s The Angelus, and derives spiritual lessons from the piece’s imagery and subjects. The last address, entitled The Ideal Man, is a final appeal for godliness to a group of students from Northfield College. In the lecture, Drummond identifies and traces the dominant characteristic of godly figures both within the biblical story, church history, and then in lives of his peers, D. L. Moody and Charles Spurgeon.
Posthumously published as a collection, The Ideal Life and Other Unpublished Addresses presents 14 lectures on biblical topics. These lectures focus on practical issues and the biblical passage for application to the Christian life. Topics include sin, salvation, the work of Christ, repentance, vocation, and the will of God. Published as a memorial to Drummond, W. Robertson Nicoll and Ian Maclaren introduce the text with interpretive overviews of Drummond’s work.
Containing a blend of addresses examining evangelism, orthodox belief, and evolutionary biology, this volume presents Henry Drummond’s ministerial passions and his intellectual preoccupations together in one volume. Comprising seven lectures in all, The New Evangelism and Other Papers shows Drummond’s intellect at its sharpest, and epitomizes the logical tenacity with which he wrestled with new ideas and traditional Christianity.
The Programme of Christianity contrasts the way God intends the world to be and the way humanity makes it. Easily Henry Drummond’s most socially concerned work, this volume lays out Dummond’s perspective on the Bible’s social prescription and the manner in which Christians should work to improve their societies. Drawing on his belief in the congruity between evolution and spirituality, Drummond now extends it into the role of the Christian in culture.

These lectures, delivered at Harvard University and Northfield College, address the new life of the Christian, and the characteristic attitudes that should accompany it. Faith, hope, and love are amply represented in these lectures as is the call to be active in society on behalf of the gospel. With an introduction by Luther Hess Waring, these compelling lectures are replete with wisdom and provoke the Christian to moral excellence and social action.
For several months, Henry Drummond surreptitiously occupied the editorial chair of the children’s literary journal Wee Willie Winkie and began to write short episodes about the life of a rambunctious monkey. These episodes were later committed to book form in The Monkey that Would Not Kill. All of the monkey’s adventures are included, and in each story moral lessons abound.
Written less than two years after his death, George Adam Smith’s The Life of Henry Drummond reconstructs the narrative of Henry Drummond’s life, and provides an incisive analysis of the ideas that distinguished him as a scholar. Drawing on personal letters, diaries, official historical documents, and personal anecdotes, Smith skillfully chronicles the life of a man who was known for unfailing kindness, generous humor, boundless energy, and cutting-edge views. Challenging but accessible, this biography presents the full scope of Drummond’s life—from his work as a college administrator to his distinguished career as a missionary and public intellectual.
George Adam Smith (1856–1942) was a Scottish preacher and Semitic scholar. He was educated at Edinburgh, Tübingen, and Leipzig, and later taught at the Free Church College in Aberdeen, Scotland. He was a distinguished scholar and prolific writer, and his work played a vital role in ensuring the broad acceptance of Old Testament “higher criticism”. His bibliography includes Atlas of the Historical Geography of the Holy Land, The Book of the Twelve Prophets, The Early Poetry of Israel, and the controversial Modern Criticism and the Preaching of the Old Testament.
