From practical truths as casting our cares upon the Savior, to finding peace in the Comforter, to growing in faith, and to the benefits of prayer, these ten sermons cover a wide array of issues surrounding the comfort we have from anxiety, fear, and worry found only in Our Lord Jesus Christ. I have only two quibbles with this book. First, one wishes that there were a short introduction that orients the reader to these ten sermons. Second, there is a typo in chapter two that identifies the text as Luke 12:2 when the passage is actually Luke 12:29. Overall, however, I have the highest praise for this book and commend it greatly to you for how, in the short span of ten sermons, we have an introduction to a biblical theology of suffering, peace, and comfort in the Lord while also, true to Spurgeon’s style, we gain compelling pastoral calls to deeper faith and repentance. Although these sermons are well over one hundred years old, the truths and applications from the text they provide are timeless. Too often today preachers load their sermons with applications but they never “connect the dots,” as it were, between text and application—the applications are seemingly drawn from the air or the whims of the pastor’s mind. This creates a destructive disconnect between theology and life. But hearing the authority of God and the Lordship of Christ speak in a biblical passage sets the base from which application from the Holy Spirit flows. Spurgeon excelled in bridging theology and life and recognized that it is not the responsibility of the preacher to change people; it is rather through faithfully presenting the glory of God through the Word of God that the sermon’s hearers/readers develop the mind of Christ through submission to Scripture. These ten sermons deserve a deliberate, devotional reading.
A review copy of this book was provided to me from the publisher.
However, this book is a collection of sermons. Sermons are designed to be preached and heard, rather than read. For that reason, I found the book relatively hard going. Hence four stars rather than five.
I received this book free from Cross-Points publishing in exchange for an honest review.
