Charles Haddon (C.H.) Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher and is still known today as the "Prince of Preachers". He was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition, defending the Church in agreement with the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith understanding, and opposing the liberal and pragmatic theological tendencies in the Church of his day. In his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to around 10 million people, often up to ten times each week at different places.

In this series of devotionals, he challenges each of us to examine our own heart to make sure our faith is solidly grounded, to count the cost, and to experience the promise of grace. “It would be very difficult to say how far a man may go in religion, and yet die in his sins; how much he may look like an heir of heaven, and yet be a child of wrath. Many unconverted men have a belief which is similar to faith, and yet it is not true faith. The life of God within the soul creates an infinite difference between the man who has it and the man who has it not; and the point is, to make sure that we have this life. I desire to help my reader in the business of self-examination. I would have him go further than examination, and attain to such abundance of grace that his holy and happy state shall become a witness to himself. No man can lose by honestly searching his own heart.” (Summary by WYSIWYG, MaryAnn and Charles Spurgeon) (4 hr 31 min)

(5 Sterne)

Such a gentle presentation of Bible truth for those who don't yet know Christ, and sweet reminders for those who do!

memorable work

(5 Sterne)

Contains great reminders and new, biblical insights for growing in the grace and knowledge of our savior Jesus Christ by trusting in the promises of God. Though one or two readers sound like they were too close to the mic, good reading overall.

(4,5 Sterne)

Oh how great it is to listen to this. All promises are in Jesus the lamb of God, who restores us from rebellion.

(5 Sterne)

Likely the clearest view of the promise of God regarding salvation. Such a joy to hear and revel in Gods promises!

Theological and Devotional all in one

(5 Sterne)

Every chapter is filled with scriptural encouragement for the believer. Enjoy!
