The church has had many theologians that have had their works stand the test of time. Strangely, very few preachers have had both a great influence on their contemporaries, and also have a historic influence. Perhaps the greatest preacher in the history of the English language is Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Spurgeon was a Baptist preacher in Britain in the 19th century. He was renowned both for his leadership ability and his teaching and preaching skills.

Much of his teaching was gathered in various writings. One of the most famous of Spurgeon's published works was the devotional entitled Morning and Evening. The format of Morning and Evening is what the title leads the reader to believe: two devotions for every day of the year, one to be read in the morning and the other to be read in the evening. Mornings and Evenings with Spurgeon is an update of Spurgeon's classic devotional by Larry and Marion Pierce. The update revises the King James Version quotations of the Scriptures with more contemporary translations. Mornings and Evenings with Spurgeon also updates some of Spurgeon's language that sounds overly Victorian so that the modern reader can more readily relate to his words. Larry and Marion Pierce do well in their update of this classic devotional, and I believe it strikes a good balance of being faithful to Spurgeon and connecting to their audience.

The changes to Spurgeon's language are conservative, and they serve to make him sound more down to earth and less stuffy. One simple example of this is the evening devotion for February 8. The original text started with the words "Many persons." The new version uses the very subtle change "many people." Just that little change makes Spurgeon sound much more conversational to his readers, which was his original intent.

There are some further improvements that this text could use. It would be nice to have page numbers in the book. Also, there is no credit to a separate translation or to the editors regarding the changes to the King James Version that was made. These improvements could make Mornings and Evenings with Spurgeon even more useful.

All in all, Larry and Marion Pierce have done well. They have brought some needed updates to a classic devotional. Perhaps the greatest compliment I could give the editors is that if Spurgeon read their update, he would approve. And, he would. – Clint Walker, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
