Norman Drummond explains why good things really do come in threes, setting out a challenge to live a fuller life through establishing the right personal values, sharing solid principles and finally urging us to pursue the three core Christian virtues of faith, hope and love.
With his three 'wisdoms' Norman Drummond begins by calling us to be true to ourselves - firstly to rediscover a Serenity of Heart that is so often lost in today's busy world; then to focus on what we should be doing - Purpose of Soul - and so to discover the value of Service in Being.
Then he sets out the need for our collective life to be driven by some equally important core principles, putting People before Process, so that we do not allow our systems to crowd out our humanity; prizing Wisdom before Knowledge, ensuring that we understand the point of what we're doing, not just learning facts; and seeking Integrity before Politics, ensuring that in our work and public lives we put values first, not short-term results.
Finally, drawing on the strong biblical example he urges us all to unite in seeking Faith, Hope and Love as the three virtues that will drive a transformational community and enable all to benefit from what each has to give.
'A practical, sincere, and straightforward book, which will help many who read it to rethink their fundamental values and reset their goals in life.' - Church Times
