Thinking out of the thimble

Eighty-four years ago, this magazine highlighted a statement by Henry Drummond (author of The Greatest Thing in the World): “Don’t offer men a thimbleful of Gospel. Don’t offer them merely joy, or merely peace, or merely rest, or merely safety; but remember how Christ came to give men a more abundant life than they had, and then you will take hold of the whole of a man—and you will give him a bigger life, a fuller life-current, than the life he is living” (Sentinel, October 13, 1928).

Those words still resonate with many of us in the 21st century as we hear people around us lamenting that despite its Christian roots, America is “going down the spiritual tubes.”
