Purchase: Amazon

When you struggle to pray, does it blow you away that the Spirit prays for you?  Yes this is true, Romans 8:26-27 teaches this.  This booklet is a look at Romans 8:26-27 by my favorite long-ago preacher, Charles Spurgeon, who provide some spiritual thoughts and reflection and encouragement with this truth of the Spirit’s ministry.  This book is from an April 11th, 1880 sermon that Spurgeon preached at his church the Metropolitan Tabernacle.  Whether you struggle to pray or need some spiritual encouragement I recommend this.  I read this while I was on vacation and wondered if Spurgeon ever thought that what he has to say would minister to someone 142 years later.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon

Want to read a short devotional to encourage praying to God? This booklet by my favorite Victorian era English preacher Charles Spurgeon provide some spiritual thoughts and reflection and practical pointers about praying to God.  This is based upon a sermon on Jesus’ words in Mark 11:24 that Spurgeon preached on August 12th, 1860 in England.  Though it is over 160 years since he preached it and when I read this nevertheless I think what Spurgeon has to say is timeless and spiritually edifying.

The Holy Spirit Glorifying Christ

Charles Spurgeon. The Holy Spirit Glorifying Christ.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, May 26, 2020. 24 pp.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon

The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus, yet what implications does this have for the Christian life?  In this booklet published by Chapel Library my favorite Victorian era English preacher Charles Spurgeon answers that question.  This is based upon a sermon that Spurgeon delivered on August 17th, 1862 yet is relevant for today.  I was blown away thinking that Spurgeon was twenty eight years old when he preached this sermon at London’s Metropolitan Tabernacle.  It made me appreciate what God has done through this man to bless God’s people than and also now with his writings.

The Blood of Sprinkling and the Children

Charles Spurgeon. The Blood of Sprinkling and the Children.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, September 14, 2014. 24 pp.

Want to read a short but edifying devotional on the Passover in Exodus and how it points to Christ while also challenging parents to teach children the Gospel?  This devotional booklet might be for you!  This is based upon a sermon by the famous Victorian era English preacher Charles Spurgeon that he preached for a Lord’s Day church service based upon the text of Exodus 12:21-27.  While the book doesn’t say when this message was delivered, I looked it up online and found out that the sermon was originally preached on October 23, 1887.  It is amazing to think that 135 years later readers in a different century in a different Continent can find it not only relevant but refreshing.  This speaks to the testimony of how Bible based teaching that’s focus on the Gospel has staying power.

Spurgeon's Catechism With Scriptural Proofs

Charles Spurgeon. Spurgeon’s Catechism.  Apollo, PA: Ichthus Publications, August 16, 2014. 54 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Are you looking for a resource to go over with kids about Christianity?  This might be a resource for you to consider!  I know some reading this review might think “Catechism?” and wonder if this might be Roman Catholic.  It is actually Baptist.  This Catechism was edited by the Prince of Preacher Charles Spurgeon from a Catechism based upon the Baptist Catechism of 1693.

This booklet consists of 82 questions and answers.  I used this to go over it with my kids and they enjoyed it.  I did explain to them that ultimately we are to go with what the Bible says but we also do appreciate what others learn about what the Bible says whether at our present local church or also in the Past.  It was helpful to look up the Scriptural citation in context and discuss the passages that are Scriptural proofs for the answers and doctrines.  I was struck at the questions at time being of great depths for my kids (you can’t say this work is shallow) and also its simplicity.  I also appreciate that it wasn’t just all doctrinal (and doctrines matter!) but also it has a lot of questions for the ten commandments.

The biggest thing that I found helpful with these questions and answers is the conversations I have with my kids because of it.  I plan to go over other Baptist Catechisms with my kids after this one and this was a good place to start with my elementary school age kids.  I used this as a family worship going over one or two questions each time.  They were part of my family worship plan in which I would go over the book of Genesis with my girls and days when I was exhausted from all the preparation of studying through Genesis I would use this Catechism.  I do recommend this as a resource.

Now for something fun!  I’m reviewing something I haven’t done before on this blog: a Christian polo shirt!

Do you want to learn about God’s attributes from the well treasured Psalm 139 and wonder what the famous preacher Charles Spurgeon has to say about this famous chapter?  This booklet is an excerpt from Spurgeon’s Treasury of David, Spurgeon’s classic commentary on the Psalms.  I picked out this booklet to go through it with our church youth (pre-teens and teens) as I want them to think about God’s attribute and also because I have benefited from other booklets by Charles Spurgeon that was published by

Family Duty by John Bunyan

John Bunyan. Family Duty.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, July 12th 2016. 35 pp.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Want a booklet on a biblical view of family?  Specifically would you want to have something to read concerning the roles of a husband, wife, father, mother, and children?  This is one that I would recommend.  I read this in one sitting and pulled nearly an all-night reading since it was spiritually edifying.  This booklet is by the famous preacher and Christian author John Bunyan.  It is amazing to think that he died in 1688 but his work is relevant for the 21st Century; that is a testimony of how when writers focus on being biblical it always is timely.

Spiritual Peace

Charles H. Spurgeon. Spiritual Peace.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, May 13th 2016. 23 pp.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

This was another booklet by Charles Spurgeon that I picked out to go through with our church youth (pre-teens and teens) concerning the topic of having peace that I thought was a relevant topic as our kids and many like them are going through a time of not being physically attending school, isolated at home and at times going though things in 2020-2021 with the Covid situation.  This booklet was published by Chapel Library.  Spurgeon is among my favorite past preachers to read and while I have appreciated other booklets and sermons from him, this specific work wasn’t bad but it didn’t stand out as much as some of the other works I enjoyed from Spurgeon.  Still Spurgeon still presents biblical truths and it is edifying for believers and evangelistic towards non-Christians.

I was looking for something that is a short read for our church youth (pre-teens and teens) that preaches the Gospel that is short and readable in one sitting that also introduce them to the heritage of sound Bible teachers from Church history and I thought this booklet published by Chapel Library might fit the bill.  I wasn’t disappointed with The Gospel in a Single Verse.  Spurgeon is among my favorite past preachers to read.

I am writing this book primarily as an encouragement to those in my church who are on Winter Break with School, so they can take advantage of their winter break to read things about God and Christ from the famous English Preacher Charles Spurgeon!

 

Charles H. Spurgeon. The First Fruit of the Spirit.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, August 25th 2017. 20 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

Want to read a short but deep and biblical work on God’s perspective of the Christian virtue of love?  I highly recommend this booklet that is written by Charles Spurgeon, one of my favorite preacher from the past that I like to read.  Spurgeon died in 1892 and I’m amazed at how well over hundred years later Spurgeon’s writings which are adapted from his sermons, still speaks to us in a manner that is still relevant and fresh.  In this particular work Spurgeon looks at Galatians 5:22 which tells us the fruit of the Spirit includes love.  Yet what is and is not love?  Spurgeon masterfully uses the passages in the surrounding context to teach us what love is and is not.

Charles H. Spurgeon. Little Sins.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, June 4, 2017. 20 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

Is there the danger of some sins in your life that are flying under the radar undetected by you since you don’t think the sin is that serious?  This booklet might be for you for your own sanctification and edifying read.  It is by Charles Spurgeon, one of my favorite dead preacher from the past that I like to read and in this particular title his words of exhortation and encouragement is still powerfully felt in my own life.  This was originally a sermon on Genesis 19:20 that Spurgeon preached on April 17th, 1859.  Though it is over 161 years after the sermon was delivered when I read this I find what he has to say is still applicable for Christians today!

A late post today since after my lectures last night I just couldn’t type up a post!  Ever have one of those days?

Charles H. Spurgeon. Free Will a Slave.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, December 3rd 2018. 18 pp.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

In 2016 I read quite a number of works by the famous English preacher Charles Spurgeon and since then I have desired to read more of his work though sadly I haven’t been able to read any of his works until now in 2020.  This booklet is Spurgeon’s defense of Calvinism by responding to John 5:40 which some Arminians in his day thought it was “one of the great guns of the Arminians” which I’m quoting from Spurgeon in the opening sentences in his booklet.  What Spurgeon aim to show in this booklet is how John 5:40 is actually a support for Calvinism instead.
