This new Charles Haddon Spurgeon book edition contains seven discourses on Isaiah 61: 1-3. Research reveals no other edition of this book available for public sale today. When first printed (1875-78), this book was fourth of the seven-volume "Spurgeon's Shilling Series," and dealt with themes to meet the needs of the "heavy heart," according to Mr. Spurgeon. Drawing on the biblical text, the author used methods timeless and relevant to meet the needs of the sorrowing, among whom the well-known preacher included himself. Spiritual isolation, pain, and depression receive life-changing relief and comfort for those who follow this message about Jesus' prophetic life and purpose from a Bible expositor whom many consider unequalled up to this day. The author's distinctive style, tone, and dynamic presentation remain intact and quickly recognizable in this edition. The author's original Contents page is expanded in this edition's Contents to include the sub-headings that appear in the original text, as set by the author. The Authorized King James Version of the Bible is the biblical source for this, as for the original, edition. Editorial changes have kept the text close to the original, modifying only to update language and syntax as needed, to avoid confusion or distraction, due to English language changes since the 19th century.
