This is an version of Spurgeon's classic daily devotional, which has been updated using the New Internation Version of the Bible as a source for the scripture verses. Spurgeon's writing has also been revised somewhat to tranlate some of the archaic expressions into phrasing that will make sense to modern readers.
The text still retains a turn-of-the-century feel, but the words are no longer a barrier to understanding.
There are meditations for each morning and evening. They are full of wisdom and comfort, and I am amazed at how much richness Spurgeon is able to draw from even the shortest bits of text, "mighty to save", "He humbled Himself", etc. This gives readers a renewed appreciation for the value of each and every word in Scripture.
Helpful indexes make the book useful as a reference when readers need help or inspiration on a particular topic. This is a book that will be used long after the original devotions have been enjoyed on a daily basis.
Spurgeon is a man of both keen intellect and profound conviction of a sort that was most rare for his time, and I believe is all but non-existent today.
Spurgeon's life heeded the Berean call to search the Scriptures daily and to evaluate everything we read and hear by that standard! He loved others enough to tell them the truth without compromise!
But the most important ingredient to Spurgeon's success was his deep, yet very simple trust in and understanding of his Lord and Saviour and of His great grace and love. Out of this came a great longing to have others come to know, to love and to worship the Lord Jesus as he did. This will become readily apparent as one drinks in Spurgeon's commentary and meditates on his Biblical message.
This book is broken into facing pages for the same date such as: This Morning's Meditation, and This Evening's Meditation.
This book will absolutely bless your Biblical socks off!
Now, with regard to the kindle formatting, I had but one issue. That is that the TOC does not link to individual months, but only to the individual (AM/PM) readings within the months. So, let's say you want to jump to a November reading, you'd have to page through all the linked readings of prior months before you could get to the one desired. I have seen another kindle version that links the months, and then also links the individual readings for every month as well. Had I not purchased this version first, I would have bought that one instead. It is not a big enough issue for me to return this version, but I thought I would give a warning to those would be buyers. In either case, this work is well worth the money.
