Spurgeon, Charles H.
Since the penning of Morning and Evening over 100 years ago, this devotional classic has become hugely popular and been a favorite for millions worldwide. This Baptist preacher spent more than 30 years preaching in the famed New Park Street Chapel, prepared nearly 3,600 sermons, and wrote nearly 50 books. His legacy also includes his amazing treatment of Calvinist and Puritan teaching, a ‘Down Grade Controversy’ near the end of his life, and a funeral fit for a head of state.
There are two readings per day, one designed for the morning and the other designed for the evening. His writings not only will affect the day, but the refreshing devotions are intended for eternal impact. Wonderfully narrated by James Adams, this outstanding devotional is worthy of daily listening. Spurgeons best known work comes alive through nuanced and meaningful narration, almost as if Spurgeon himself was encouraging us in matters faith, love and devotion to God.
C. H. Spurgeon (1834-92), the great Victorian preacher, was one of the most influential people of the second half of the 19th Century. He was a famous British preacher and pastor for 38 years of New Park Street Chapel, later called the Metropolitan Tabernacle. At the heart of his desire to preach was a fierce love of people, a desire that meant he did not neglect his pastoral ministry.
