Charles Spurgeon’s ‘Morning and Evening’ devotional is one of the best read Christian books. As well as a raft of other books he also wrote ‘Faith’ Checkbook’, another daily devotional. In his lifetime Charles Spurgeon was popular and drew huge crowds to his sermons. Now, he is even better known with his many books read across the world.
Spurgeon’s devotionals are rewarding and challenging to read, and if you’re considering beginning reading a daily devotional I suggest you start here!
If you are not familiar with Charles Spurgeon then the following synopsis from answers.com gives an idea why he is still so popular today.
With no formal theological training, British Baptist preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834 – 1892) became the most popular minister of the nineteenth century, regularly attracting crowds of 6,000 each Sunday to his London – based Metropolitan Tabernacle church. In the history of Christianity, no other cleric is more widely read – after Biblical ones – than Spurgeon. He has more material available to readers than any other Christian author, dead or alive.
