About the Author

CHARLES H. SPURGEON (1834–1892) was an English Baptist pastor at New Park Street Chapel, London (which later became the Metropolitan Tabernacle), for thirty-eight years. As the nineteenth century's most prolific preacher and writer, his ministry legacy continues today. 

Alistair Begg served two churches in his native Scotland before answering the call in 1983 to become senior pastor at Parkside Church in suburban Cleveland, OH. A graduate of the London School of Theology, he has written several books and is heard daily on the national radio program Truth For Life.

Beggs rendition is very well done and easily readable in modern English.
M. Durant
This devotional book offers two devotional readings for each day (one for the morning and one for the evening), that are not lightweight, cotton candy thoughts.
Craig T. Owens
A classic from Spurgeon, written in understandable text by Alistair Begg.

Alistair Begg, pastor (Parkside Church in Cleveland, Ohio), author, and speaker, has done a magnificent job in updating this devotional classic. Begg's updates enable a wider audience to enjoy and be nourished by Spurgeon's timeless writing. Although this devotional (in its unrevised version) can be accessed daily on multiple websites, I have found myself to be more consistent in my reading when I hold a hard copy in my hands.
Spurgeon's pastoral warmth and thirst for evangelism come through strongly in these short devotionals. His focus on all three members of the Trinity is excellent as he beckons us further in serving Christ. I have also found his connection with the individual reader to be outstanding as he instructs and motivates toward change and action.
Granted, some of Spurgeon's interpretation may be dated (for instance, he interprets Song of Solomon as an allegory between Christ and the Church). However, this clearly is the minority, and the timeless nature of his topics far outweigh any problem this poses.
I have used this devotional off and on for many months now, and have many friends who have also been encouraged by their reading of it.
This 2003 edition is based on the English Standard Version (ESV), a recent translation respected for its readability and faithfulness to the text. Among the many Christian leaders who endorse the ESV are J.I. Packer (Regent College), Chuck Colson (Prison Fellowship Ministries), John Piper (Bethlehem Baptist Church), and R.C. Sproul (Ligonier Ministries).

I've demoted my other devotionals. This is clearly #1. It's like a lifetime supply of Godiva chocolates.

I've read the same material twice now without a notice. I've wondered about this. Is my memory going that bad? Am I paying more attention today than last May 8th? After 2 full years, I've decided that I'm OK. This devotional has an almost supernatural ability to appropriately align Spurgeon's theology and scripture with the ups and downs of my life. We perceive Christ in subtly different ways at different times. Spurgeon's genius is that he knew about this effect. Spurgeon demonstrably and differently challenges my perceptions of Christ in good times and bad. Those times are every morning and evening, day after day. Spurgeon captures, elucidates and brings to human understanding this precise, temporal understanding of the message.

I venture to guess that 20 years of use will be a new read every day. It's a great value ... a devotional that never ends, that reveals Christ's operation in life everyday and that becomes the AM & PM must read event. It will work its 'magic' on any Christian.

This is a wonderful resource. The Original is a masterpiece. The problem is that the type size in the hardbound edition is Very Small. Not suitable for anyone with less than perfect vision and a lot of light. I am Very disappointed. This publisher, Crosswayd doesn't seem to pay attention to these details.

For years I've read 'Streams in the Desert' until a friend suggested "Morning and Evening" to me. I read Spurgeon's daily readings online in the classic version, but really struggled with the poetic language: thine, thus, hast, thy, art, thou wilt, thou dreamest etc. After seeing this updated version, I decided I needed the book, rather than the website. In updating this classic, Alistair Begg removed those archaic terms without sacrificing the message Spurgeon was teaching or even watering it down.

One reviewer I read said that there was very little difference between this and the classic version so save the cost of the royalty and buy the original. The difference really comes in the elimination of those terms and revising the sentence structure accordingly, but not at all in the examples or messages.

I highly recommend this devotional as a great way to start and end your day with your focus on the Lord.

Off the bat, I must say that I am not recommending Begg's version of this book in particular. I think he did a good job, and you would do well with it, but the original was written using KJV. The ESV is a great translation. If you've never used it, this devotional is a good introduction.

You can get the original text online for free. I am not the kind of person, though, who enjoys reading from a computer. I prefer having a book because I can write in the margins, underline, dog-ear the pages, et cetera.

As for the material in the text, it is outstanding. Spurgeon has a wonderful ability to convict, encourage and teach. His devotional is better than any I've ever read, to include Daily with the King, My Utmost for His Highest and Devotional Classics. The others are good, but if I had to choose just one to use or give as a gift, this is it. I highly encourage anyone even faintly interested to give Spurgeon a go for at least a month. You'll be hooked for a lifetime.

A classical devotional written by a giant of the Christian faith, Charles Spurgeon, with its language slightly modernized by Alistair Begg who left the beauty of the language intact.

With insight and appropriate application, Spurgeon's teachings lead the believer to a deeper personal relationship with Christ. Each devotional entry is filled with 'meat' rather than the often 'milky' devotionals so popular for those seeking a feel-good Christianity. This is not the prosperity gospel of today's TV evangelists rather the true Gospel that mankind is sinful yet God wants each to have a personal relationship with Him through His son Jesus. One can learn from Spurgeon it is not just a simple rote prayer asking for forgiveness but day-by-day or even minute-by-minute setting one's sight on things unseen. He shares the hope of powerful, loving God protecting His children around the clock. In these times, every believer needs more than a daily "quiet time" taught as a way of discipleship; we need to focus on Truth both Morning & Evening to live as an alien in today's world. This book is a great option to help meet that need in a vernacular better understood than the formal writing of the late 19th century.
