About the Series:
The commentary directs you to places where Spurgeon explicitly cites or alludes to a verse, using specialized, technology-based research to offer you the best of Spurgeon. It highlights illustration content: illustrations accompany the commentary and are tagged with preaching themes, so the preacher looking for an illustration relating to either a topic or a verse will be able to find one easily. It highlights application content: each section of Scripture includes at least one application from Spurgeon based on those verses. It saves time: reading Spurgeon for pleasure is wonderful, but preachers and teachers working under deadlines need ways to streamline their sermon preparation process. This commentary does all this by trimming the excess out of Spurgeon's sermon archive and increasing functionality, usability, and readability. Outdated language has even been updated, making Spurgeon's writing easier than ever to understand.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) began preaching at the New Park Street Chapel in London at nineteen years of age. He gained instant fame, and the church grew from 232 members to more than five thousand at the end of his pastorate. Many of his sermons were published each week and regularly sold more than 25,000 copies in twenty languages. Spurgeon read six books per week during his adult life, and read Pilgrim's Progress more than 100 times. In addition to his studying and preaching, Spurgeon also founded the Pastor's College (now Spurgeon's College), various orphanages and schools, mission chapels, and numerous other social institutions.
