Spurgeon on the Power of Scripture Review

Book Review: 

This is the second in the series “Spurgeon Speaks.” Charles Haddon Spurgeon was often referred to as the Prince of Preachers. Even though he was born nearly 200 years ago, his words are still relevant today and many are blessed by his teaching.

This volume is a collection of sermons on the power and importance of Scripture. One of the quotes in book which I think summarizes the purpose of Scripture in the life of the Christian is this, “May the Holy Spirit help us to think of the power of God’s word for four purposes – first, to excite our awe; second, to ensure our obedience; third, to inspire our confidence; and fourth, to direct our efforts.”

Readers will be encouraged by the messages included in this collection: “The Word of a King,” “The Bible Tried and Proved,” “The Infallibility of Scripture,” “Christ’s Indwelling Word,” “The Bible,” “The Warnings and Rewards of the Word of God,” and “How to Read the Bible.”

I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for this honest review.
