Spurgeon, Charles H.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the gifted nineteenth-century English preacher, was a man whose whole being seem infused with the Word of God. He possessed a deep passion for men and women to know God — and then to keep growing in their knowledge of him. To this end, he worked tirelessly to advance and defend the truths of Scripture and to present the excellencies of his Saviour. The exceptional breadth of his ministry and its lasting influence, even on modern-day evangelicals, is remarkable.
In this volume, Larry Brown has compiled Spurgeon’s expositions of Scripture, which were given as he read biblical passages before preaching. These were often 'mini-sermons' in themselves. Ideal for daily reading, Devotional thoughts on the Bible enables the reader to advance through the main themes of a book of the Bible in a relatively short time as Spurgeon masterfully probes both the text and the reader.
This book on the Pentateuch is the first time these expositions have been available in this format. It forms the first volume of a new Spurgeon series from Evangelical Press called Devotional thoughts on the Bible. May Spurgeon’s theological insight and wisdom continue to bless and stir the hearts of Christians in this generation.
C. H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) was the first minister of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Elephant & Castle, London. He is known as the 'Prince of Preachers'. Through the working of the Holy Spirit in his life and ministry, his down-to-earth preaching touched the lives of countless men and women, both during his life and to the present day. His love of the Scriptures is evident in everything he wrote. Thousands of his sermons are in print and he is known, not least, for his popular books of daily readings, such as Morning & Evening and Cheque book of the Bank of Faith.
'They are heart-warming, practical applications of Holy Scripture, filled with the sweet savour of "Jesus Christ and him crucified". They will greatly benefit the reader as a daily devotional.' — Pastor Don Fortner Grace Baptist Church of Danville, Kentucky, USA (From the Foreword)
