For tens of thousands of Christians over the last century, Charles Haddon Spurgeon's Morning and Evening has been a daily devotional guide through life's ups and downs. New generations can once again enjoy Spurgeon's beautiful prose and elegant command of the English language in this completely revised edition. Morning and Evening offers readers the best of Spurgeon's insight and wise counsel on themes that are as relevant to our day as they were in his day. In this updated version, Spurgeon's work is returned to its former brilliance while retaining the beautiful language of the original King James Version.
• Each day's devotions are presented on a two-page spread for complete ease of use.
• Each of the 732 devotions--one for every morning and evening of the year--provides inspiring meditations on portions of Scripture drawn from every book of the Bible.
• A new topical index helps readers discover Spurgeon's thoughts on various topics important to Christian life.
• An index of texts lets readers find what Spurgeon had to say about a particular Bible verse. Spurgeon has penned meditations, expressed simply but eloquently, that continue to draw readers to faith and obedience.
Though Spurgeon published thousands of sermons and many books, Morning and Evening remains by far his most popular work.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) served for 30 years at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. It is estimated that during his lifetime he spoke to 10 million people, and he became known as the "Prince of Preachers." His works fill over 60 volumes; and more than a century after his death, his sermons and devotional texts continue to challenge and touch Christians and non-Christians alike with their biblical grounding, eloquent text, and simple encouragement. Among his published books are Lectures to My Students (Hendrickson); The Treasury of David (Hendrickson), a devotional commentary on the Psalms; All of Grace, the first Christian pocket-paperback published in the United States; numerous volumes of topical sermon collections; and the best-selling Morning and Evening.

lrgabrielUpland, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Daily readings from the Prince of PreachersFebruary 8, 2015lrgabrielUpland, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleThis volume is a collection of short devotionals mini sermons really two for each day of the year. Each one is based on one phrase or verse from Scripture and takes only about two minutes to read. Its amazing to me how much depth and meaning Spurgeon could get out of one short sentence! He then uses the context of the verse, other scriptures, and memorable illustrations and metaphors to expound the text and make application to the reader. Reading through this collection was a tremendous blessing and I plan to go through it again and again.
Topics he touches on include: heaven, suffering, prayer, Gods Word, Gods attributes, the atonement (Christs work on the cross), the work of the Holy Spirit, the church, sanctification (the process of becoming holy), obedience and mortification of sin, and more. The selections provide the reader with a balanced variety of words of comfort, encouragement, conviction, instruction, exhortation, and warning. Here is just a small sampling of the jewels this volume contains:
"Gods altar was to be built of unhewn stones, that no trace of human skill or labour might be seen upon it The proud heart of man is very anxious to have a hand in the justification of the soul before God It were well if sinners would remember that so far from perfecting the Saviours work, their carnal confidences only pollute and dishonour it."
"It is our duty and our privilege to wait upon the Lord in service, in worship, in expectancy, in trust all the days of our life. Our faith will be tried faith, and if it be of the true kind, it will bear continued trial without yielding. We shall not grow weary of waiting upon God if we remember how long and how graciously He once waited for us."
"Jesus Christ is the Alpha and the Omega of the Bible. He is the constant theme of its sacred pages; from first to last they testify of HimWe should always read Scripture in this light; we should consider the word to be as a mirror into which Christ looks down from heaven; and then we, looking into it, see His face reflected as in a glass."
"A prayerless soul is a Christless soul. Prayer is the lisping of the believing infant, the shout of the fighting believer, the requiem of the dying saint falling asleep in Jesus. It is the breath, the watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honour of a Christian. If thou be a child of God, thou wilt seek thy Fathers face and live in thy Fathers love."
"No neutralities can exist in religion. We are either ranked under the banner of Prince Immanuel, to serve and fight His battles, or we are vassals of the black prince, Satan. To whom belongest thou?"
These daily readings will cause the reader to reflect on his own relationship and walk with God, to praise Him for His works, attributes, and promises, and at times to deal honestly with his heart and humble himself in repentance. The passages help the believer to take his eyes off himself his merits, failings, and troubles and to look instead to Christ. Sometimes the writer addresses that reader who may yet be in a state of unbelief to turn to Jesus, to believe and live. Spurgeons thoughts come from the heart of one who clearly loved and cared about people, but who loved his Lord above all else.
