This little book delivers peace to the troubled heart & a balm to the afflicted body. Brother Spurgeon speaks authoritatively on suffering & threads of biblical truth are weaved between every word of testimony to God's faithful sustaining power & grace. This book so helped me during some very difficult physical suffering & those whom I've recommended it said it has become an absolute favorite. If you know a brother or sister in Christ who is suffering, this little volume would be ...more

Beside Still Waters came to my attention through a friend who is dying from Lou Gherig's disease. I have rarely read any book that reaches my spirit with comfort, encouragement, and hope as this one does. Roy H. Clark beautifully edited C.H. Spurgeon's sermons to provide 366 short devotionals that speak to those of us who are feeling crushed by life. I highly recommend Beside Still Waters for anyone experiencing trying times.

I've read a devotion from this book every day for years. Surgeon's book is a continual source of comfort and wisdom.

I carry this book with me every day I head out of the house. Spurgeon's words have been ab balm to a hurting soul on many occasions, pointing me back to the glory of Christ.

The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey M ...more
