Item description for Morning And Evening-Gloss Black Imitation Leather by Charles Spurgeon...
Overview A beautiful keepsake edition of the nineteenth century classic, Morning and Evening! As the title implies, Spurgeon groups Scripture and devotions into morning and evening readings for every day of the year. This handy-sized volume-featuring gilded page edges, a ribbon marker and presentation page- offers a pocketful of inspiration wherever you go!
Publishers Description A wealth of Biblical teaching from Spurgeon. He meditates on two portions of scripture each day with applications that are very relevant for contemporary Christians. Spurgeon's characteristically pithy comments hit home with a wit and elegance rarely found in other writing. Spurgeon was, primarily, a pastor and this shows with the concern he shows here for the hearts of the reader. Christians, young and old, will find his comments challenging, stimulating and direct. This edition is in a high quality diary style finish, with a gilt page edging, a presentation page and a bookmark. This is the most complete and unabridged version available of the best-selling Morning and Evening devotions. The luxury finish makes an excellent gift for a business associate, graduate or relative.

Great update of a beautiful classic devotional! Jul 16, 2009
For years I've read 'Streams in the Desert' until a friend suggested "Morning and Evening" to me. I read Spurgeon's daily readings online in the classic version, but really struggled with the poetic language: thine, thus, hast, thy, art, thou wilt, thou dreamest etc. After seeing this updated version, I decided I needed the book, rather than the website. In updating this classic, Alistair Begg removed those archaic terms without sacrificing the message Spurgeon was teaching or even watering it down.
One reviewer I read said that there was very little difference between this and the classic version so save the cost of the royalty and buy the original. The difference really comes in the elimination of those terms and revising the sentence structure accordingly, but not at all in the examples or messages.
I highly recommend this devotional as a great way to start and end your day with your focus on the Lord.
A classical devotional! Jun 5, 2009
A classical devotional written by a giant of the Christian faith, Charles Spurgeon, with its language slightly modernized by Alistair Begg who left the beauty of the language intact.
A review TWO YEARS later May 9, 2009
I've demoted my other devotionals. This is clearly #1. It's like a lifetime supply of Godiva chocolates.
I've read the same material twice now without a notice. I've wondered about this. Is my memory going that bad? Am I paying more attention today than last May 8th? After 2 full years, I've decided that I'm OK. This devotional has an almost supernatural ability to appropriately align Spurgeon's theology and scripture with the ups and downs of my life. We perceive Christ in subtly different ways at different times. Spurgeon's genius is that he knew about this effect. Spurgeon demonstrably and differently challenges my perceptions of Christ in good times and bad. Those times are every morning and evening, day after day. Spurgeon captures, elucidates and brings to human understanding this precise, temporal understanding of the message.
I venture to guess that 20 years of use will be a new read every day. It's a great value ... a devotional that never ends, that reveals Christ's operation in life everyday and that becomes the AM & PM must read event. It will work its 'magic' on any Christian.
SHORT, HELPFUL AND PRECISE Apr 14, 2009
THIS VOLUME IS A GOD SEND. IT IS SUCCINCT, CLEAR AND HELPFUL WHEN YOU READ THE SECTION OF THE SCRIPTURE THE DEVOTION IS TAKEN FROM. IT ALSO ADDS FOOTNOTES LISTING THE PASSAGE WRITTEN IN THE DEVOTION.
Morning glory and evening grace to nourish your soul Apr 13, 2009
Many of the people reading these reviews of Spurgeon will probably already be familiar with his work. But, if you are not, although not scripture, and not meant to replace daily intake of God's Word, Spurgeon's "mini" sermons will further your knowledge of Holy Scripture and help you grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Whether you are just using this book for devotional purposes or in a very difficult spot in your life, this book (along with God's Word) is for you! You cannot go wrong reading this book over and over again!
