A wonderful addition to any Spurgeon biography library. Having read Susie, a biography about the life of Susannah Spurgeon by the same author and loving it, I jumped at the chance to read this book that shows the everyday tenderness and care these two had for one another in marriage.
While many people have written about how to have a Christian marriage, few have written a biography about a couple who exemplified it. I loved how this book focused on the little everyday things that showed their affection, even when they were far apart, and Susie had to go even months without seeing him while he was gone on preaching tours. But most of all this book shows two believers united in earthly marriage working towards the glory of God and the increase of His kingdom.
Organized topically rather than chronologically, this book takes the reader through the various ways that they honored God in their marriage, through mutual support, laughter, learning, and their shared eternal focus. A wonderfully inspiring and encouraging read that shows a couple in love with each other and in love with their Savior.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
