This volume contains not one year, but two years of morning and evening devotions. For 366 additional pages of devotions have been selected from Spurgeon's writings, most of them from his Treasury of David. We have entitled this extra year of devotions, Morning and Evening II. Also the devotions of many other noted authors appear. In Spurgeon's preface to Treasury of David we find the following: ''The delightful study of the Psalms has yielded me boundless profit and ever-growing pleasure. Common gratitude constrains me to communicate to others a portion of the benefit, with the prayer that it may induce them to search further for themselves.'' These comments bare the heart of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, a preacher of righteousness, and a man after God's own heart. Anyone with only a brief acquaintance with the fruits of his pen must see that this famed but humble soul lived and breathed the Word of God. The reader of these daily devotions will quickly discover that Mr. Spurgeon did not ''keep back from declaring to you all the counsel of God'' (Acts. 20: 27). In his heart he magnified the Lord; his heart panted after Him ''as the heart pants after the waterbrooks.'' Therefore, in his devotions he did not forget the teachings of Holy Scripture. These devotions which he has written for the saints of God reflect his own personal devotions. Any sincere lover of God and of His Word should cherish the many gleams of heavenly light which leap from every page of this volume. And if he biblically bears down on the doctrines of grace which have been hidden from view in this ungodly age, it will soon prove to be a blessing of the highest degree to those who ''seek to know the Lord, '' an to ''grow ingrace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ'' (2 Peter 3: 18) As you read these devotions day by day, may you find yourselves fervently saying, ''To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity'' (2 Peter 3: 18).
