A much needed remedy for every Christian struggling to live in light of God's covenant promises to his children which is to say, that every Christian needs to read this book at some point in their life. It should be marked as one of the few books on your shelf that demands re-reading. ...more

I find Spurgeon's writing style and content to be very similar to Ryle. I am not persuaded that the intended audience (nominal or non-believers) in Spurgeon's time would have the same degree of interest of the same audience in our current time. ...more

another good, solid spurgeon book. a little deeper than his soul winning book. it took a little more concentration to comprehend, but excellent truths throughout.

Spurgeon takes you deeper in your faith, deeper in your understanding of God´s promises in this book. Though small, it packs a punch... full of rich insights and refreshing truths!

This book moved me to not seek the promises of God but to seek the Promisor - to seek. God Himself.
Andy Bintoro
a book of hope, that we have the promise, we just need to wait and working in this promise. our waiting would never be hollow.
This book is quite a thin one, the content was light and the format was a short chapters.

The original title of this book, when it was published in the 1800's during the lifetime of its author [1], was "According To Promise:  Or, The Lord's Method Of Dealing With His Chosen People."  This book does deal with God's promises, especially towards the end of this book, but it is not as straightforward a book as one might expect.  Indeed, the way that this book begins and ends suggest that the author had something in mind with each part of the book and turned two related but somewhat indep ...more

According to Promise is about God’s promises and how we can trust Him to fulfill them. I was thoroughly encouraged to take God at his word as I read this beautiful book. Each chapter is a perfect length to read slowly and meditatively and dwell on the promise of God. This is not so much a theological teaching book about each and every promise of God, but a devotionally encouraging book about trusting God’s promises. Here are a few quotes that really meant something to me.

This is my first time reading Spurgeon, and I loved it!

I was very encouraged by Mr. Spurgeon's call to take firm hold of the promises God has given us in His Word, and to believe for the Lord's miraculous intervention in our circumstances. No spiritualizing away the promises here! None of that, "Well God only means to bless us in eternity. He doesn't really mean He'll take care of our material needs now" stuff we sometimes hear.

He talked a lot about God's integrity, His commitment to keep His

Somewhat fluffy language prevented me from enjoying the book at the start but it became quite an encouragement by the end. It's very good to be reminded of the surety and multitude of God's promises to believers. ...more

Wow what a wonderful reminder of how God loves us! He filled his Word with promises to give us hope, for a future and for daily reminders and help. This book was very well written and was just very encouraging. Will definitely take this book to heart and read others.

"The promise which is our inheritance, is also our test and touchstone."

A wake up call for all the Christians, reminding us to where we stand and whom do we serve.

A very uplifting book.

The promises of God are priceless. If we fully understood them, we would be emboldened to live in a more powerful and peaceful way.

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

“Perhaps, moreover, we have not yet displayed sufficient submission to the divine will. Patience has not yet had her perfect work. The weaning process is not accomplished: we are still hankering after the comforts which the Lord intends us forever to outgrow. Abraham made a great feast when his son Isaac was weaned; and, peradventure, our heavenly Father will do the same with us. Lie down, proud heart! Quit thine idols; forsake thy fond doting’s; and the promised peace will come unto thee.” 2 likes
