Item description for The Mourner's Comforter: Isaiah 61 Explained by Charles Haddon Spurgeon...
Overview The Mourner's Comforter, new edition of Spurgeon's Shilling Series, Volume 4, first published in 1875. From the time of Spurgeon this was not reprinted until 1975 when a rare copy was found in the library of an American brother. "Heavy heart, this book is meant for you. He who sends forth this volume knows the heart of a mourner by a kindred experience, and is most anxious to be a 'son of consolation' to the sorrowing. This little volume is meant to scare the night raven, of which Milton tells us that it sits 'where brooding darkness spreads his jealous wings.' Most men know it as Religious Melancholy, but we call it by the older and more scriptural name of Mourning in Zion" (C.H. Spurgeon). Seven discourses on Isaiah 61:1-3.
Publishers Description This new Charles Haddon Spurgeon book edition contains seven discourses on Isaiah 61: 1-3. Research reveals no other edition of this book available for public sale today. When first printed (1875-78), this book was fourth of the seven-volume "Spurgeon's Shilling Series," and dealt with themes to meet the needs of the "heavy heart," according to Mr. Spurgeon. Drawing on the biblical text, the author used methods timeless and relevant to meet the needs of the sorrowing, among whom the well-known preacher included himself. Spiritual isolation, pain, and depression receive life-changing relief and comfort for those who follow this message about Jesus' prophetic life and purpose from a Bible expositor whom many consider unequalled up to this day. The author's distinctive style, tone, and dynamic presentation remain intact and quickly recognizable in this edition. The author's original Contents page is expanded in this edition's Contents to include the sub-headings that appear in the original text, as set by the author. The Authorized King James Version of the Bible is the biblical source for this, as for the original, edition. Editorial changes have kept the text close to the original, modifying only to update language and syntax as needed, to avoid confusion or distraction, due to English language changes since the 19th century. Front matter includes (new) Charles Haddon Spurgeon (biographical page); (new) The Book's Place among Mr. Spurgeon's Works; (new) Editorial Remarks about this Edition; The Author's Preface; (new) Acknowledgements; (new) Foreword. Back matter contains Reference Notes with biblical and information references that coincide with superscripts within the text.

The Mourners Comforter Sep 18, 2007
In this book, Charles Spurgeon leads the reader to the only true source for overcoming or dealing with sorrow and suffering. The heavy of heart, of which there are many among us, can find true solace from the wisdom contained in Isaiah 61: 1-3. It is hard to believe that 3 short verses in Isaiah 61 can be the the source of such wisdom and knowledge, and the inspiration for the mourner. I would highly recommend this unique and special book for any looking for physical, mental or spiritual relief.
