About the author: (Copied from NLPG)
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834 to 1892) remains a respected and influential source of inspiration and study. His classic collections of devotions for morning and evening remain a beloved treasure of wisdom and teaching for Christians.
First, the book is a reproduction of the 1890's classic work.
The book focused on "removing the barriers we too often place between our faith and God's love" (Copied from the back of the book).
I chose the book because I wanted to read more Christian-based books, especially practical knowledge and theology. I tried to get into the book, but it is a lot of language, I did not understand. For example, "There is no attribute of God, which self-righteousness does not impugn" (p. 2). Luckily, my mother reads a lot of theology and helped on some of the passages. I definitely recommend pulling up a dictionary as you read the book. You will see such words as comest, contemned, thee, doth, seeketh, and tis. Some passages are just hard to read. I am still reading and re-reading the book for understanding.
