A short reading for every day. Spurgeon wrote this selection of readings to encourage believers to enter into the full provision that their relationship to Jesus entitled them to realise, on a daily basis. He explains we have to present the promises of Scripture to God in prayer and faith, anticipating that he will honour what he has said. Beautiful volume in tan and burgu...more

Spurgeon is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I am also reading a sermon of his each day and appreciate his depth and bold challenges to his congregations. Spurgeons writing from nineteenth century
England remind me that Christ's promises & the Gospel are never changing and that is so beautiful and encouraging.

Its not just a daily devotional book, but its a book to pick up often through out the day. This is one of those books, that you will read over and over, it is a MUST have and a MUST read. Blessings 'ME'
Charles Spurgeon still shines even after all these years -- his encouragement in the faith and his knowledge of Gods love to us in Christ should be part of every believer's reading menu.

When I read this book in my 20's, I would have given it five stars. It did definitely teach me to pray and to plead the promises of God. And most of the time it was encouraging and firmly rooted in sound theological reasoning based on the Bible. On the other hand, there are promises given in Scripture that cannot be appropriated for my particular situation (or any person's particular situation). Thinking that every promise in Scripture is a blank check is the anagogical fallacy. The reader needs...more
I have used this in my personal devotions and quiet time repeatedly. I cannot tell you how God has ministered to me in these short little devotionals written by Spurgeon.
I whole heartedly recommend this book to any christian looking for a daily reading book. Spurgeon's writing is kind and gentle echoing the character of his Saviour. Each reading is positive and encouraging; reaffirming the very deep love Jesus has for his people. I started reading this book just after losing my job and found in it all promises I needed to stand on. Spurgeon's deep understanding of the Scripture's gives his writing depth and so provides food for the soul and revives the flagging...more

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was born in Essex, England, and became a Baptist minister. In fact, he was probably Britain’s best-known preacher of the nineteenth century, serving with the New Park Street Baptist Chapel in Southwark, London, which he built into the Metropolitan Tabernacle. In addition to his public speaking, Spurgeon was involved in several charitable organizations, including an orphanage in Stockwell, and had an extensive influence through his writings.

Though nothing seems quite able to top Morning by Morning, this devotional is a good, worthwhile book for beginning the day. Spurgeon is quite solid, mixing the encouragement of the promises of God with pricks for the conscience - spurring readers on to love and good works.
One of the best devotionals I've ever read. Each day has a one page devotion based on a Bible promise. Outside of just a few Victorian words or references (easily defined/explained using Google, etc.), the topics are so applicable to today, you would never know it was written in the 1880's. Highly recommended.

This is an oldie but goodie it's short for those pressed for time yet plenty of depth to glean from Gods word and draw closer to Him, Very applicable to modern world !
2010 devotional -- the daily readings were a bit shorter than I'd like but it dovetailed nicely with Streams in the Dessert.
Good way to get into Spurgeon's heart. Called the 'prince of preachers' this British leader has influenced countless lives.
One of my favorite devotionals. Spurgeon offers balanced teaching on the life of faith.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) was England's best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1854, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 20, became pastor of London's famed New Park Street Church (formerly pastored by the famous Baptist theologian John Gill). The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey M...more
