A book of 365 more daily readings taken from Charles Haddon Spurgeon’s sermons from the Metropolitan Tabernacle. These date from the final years of his London ministry and cover a wide range of subjects. Many of the extracts are accompanied by a verse carefully selected from one of the hymns sung on the occasion.
‘To the one God of heaven and earth, in the Trinity of his sacred persons, be all honour and glory, world without end, amen. To the glorious Father, as the covenant God of Israel; to the gracious Son, the redeemer of his people; to the Holy Ghost, the author of sanctification, be everlasting praise for that gospel of the free grace of God herein proclaimed unto men.’ Spurgeon’s dedication of his volumes of sermons is a fitting note on which to commence this final volume of 365 daily readings extracted from Spurgeon’s mature ministry.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) was England’s best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1854, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 20, became pastor of London’s famed New Park Street Church. The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey Music Hall. In these venues Spurgeon frequently preached to audiences numbering more than 10,000—all in the days before electronic amplification. In 1861 the congregation moved permanently to the newly constructed Metropolitan Tabernacle. Spurgeon’s printed works are voluminous.
Anyone who has read Spurgeon’s daily devotionals or one of his many printed sermons will readily welcome this excellent volume…As for the content of the daily readings it goes without saying that it is deeply stirring and glorifying to God… Spurgeon’s sermons often flowed in a devotional manner while at the same time containing the grand doctrines of Holy Scripture. Therefore his writings make for easy reading and certainly probe the thoughts of the mind. This volume is to be recommended to all even for those who have not read any of the previous volumes. – British Church Newspaper – 27/01/2012 – Patrick Baker
