This is a wonderful little book. Elizabeth Skoglund has done a fine job of weaving together the writings of Charles Spurgeon on topics dealing with emotional pain and suffering.

This has been the best book on the subject of depression/anxiety/loneliness I have ever read! It is sound truth given by a great man of God who has been with his Lord over a hundred years now. Well, I'll be writing about it on my blog because there is just so much to say! :)

If you have an interest in Charles Spurgeon (and I recommend you do) then this will be a good devotional read for you. Skoglund does a good job of weaving numberous references from Spurgeon around several different important themes.

Here is oxygen for the soul. It gives light in dark times. The book builds to a crescendo and the final chapter alone is worthy of publication of itself.
