The Promises of God by Charles Spurgeon: A Book Review
Charles Spurgeon is one of my heroes of the faith. Known as “The Prince of Preachers”, Spurgeon lived a fascinating life. He accomplished more in his short life than many of us will accomplish in double the time. While known for his preaching, I also love his writing—especially his devotions.
When I was younger, I somehow came across Spurgeon’s Morning by Morning series of devotions. I’m not sure how a copy came into my possession, but I loved reading one each morning. I later discovered he had a series titled Evening by Evening and in some cases you could find the two combined aptly titled Morning and Evening.
Crossway is now releasing an updated version to another series of devotions by Charles Spurgeon retitled The Promises of God. Previously titled, The Cheque Book of the Bank of Faith, Tim Chester has edited the devotions to remove archaic words, shorten sentences, use modern word order, add references to biblical allusions, and use the English Standard Version of the Bible. This should serve to allow modern readers to receive maximum benefit from one of the great heroes of the faith.
With The Promises of God, you get 365 devotions from Spurgeon himself. You can start the day, end the day, or take a break in the middle with these. I love that they are shorter. I have had devotion books in the past where you needed a solid chunk of time to be able to read a day. Spurgeon offers impactful devotions that can be read in five minutes or less, but meditated on throughout the whole day.
You won’t regret picking up a copy of the Promises of God. Spurgeon’s impact was great when he was alive. It is huge now that he’s gone. The Lord is using this faithful saint’s wisdom to impact generation after generation. You and your family alike will benefit from the Promises of God.
You can pick up a copy of The Promises of God on Amazon.
