These compilations of Spurgeon’s expositions of Matthew and Mark were given as he read biblical passages before preaching. These were often ‘mini–sermons’ in themselves. This volume is a second in a new Spurgeon series from Evangelical Press call Devotional Thoughts on the Bible. Ideal for daily reading, this series enables the reader to advance through the main themes of a book of the Bible in a relatively short time as Spurgeon masterfully probes both the text and the reader.
C. H. Spurgeon (1834-92), the great Victorian preacher, was one of the most influential people of the second half of the 19th Century. He was a famous British preacher and pastor for 38 years of New Park Street Chapel, later called the Metropolitan Tabernacle. At the heart of his desire to preach was a fierce love of people, a desire that meant he did not neglect his pastoral ministry.
