Each verse is followed by a brief thought or application, making this collection ideal for personal or family devotions. Find daily encouragement with promises such as:"God shall be with you," Genesis 48:21"Call unto me, and I will answer thee," Jeremiah 33:3"If thou seek Him, He will be found of thee," 1 Chronicles 28:9"He that humbleth himself shall be exalted," Luke 18:14"Because I live, ye shall live also," John 14:19"He will be our guide even unto death," Psalm 48:14
Both Andrew Murray and C. H. Spurgeon wrote and taught about the immeasurable value of intercessory prayer in the life of every believer and the entire church. They believed that persistent, fervent prayer is, perhaps, the greatest work that every Christian can do by the grace of God and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Spurgeon told his congregation, "No one can do me a truer kindness in this world than to pray for me."
Editor L. G. Parkhurst has compiled selections on this important topic from Murray's devotional books and Spurgeon's sermons updating them for today's reader. The thirty-one devotionals begin with a reading by Murray, then Spurgeon's commentary on that aspect of intercession as well as a concluding prayer.
The Believer's Secret of Intercession powerfully persuades us to labor together and individually in fervent prayer so that sinners might be converted and blessings might fall upon the saints of God.
A unique devotional handbook on a topic of great importance for the church today.
In an age of limited travel and isolated nations, C.H. Spurgeon preached to over 10,000,000 people in person—sometimes up to 10 times per week. It is in this classic work that Spurgeon most clearly present the message of salvation—man’s ultimate need and God’s unique provision—both simply and sincerely, for honest seekers and zealous witnesses alike.
What if Charles Spurgeon helped you prepare next Sunday’s sermon?
Or what if you could talk over your preaching with Joseph Parker, Richard Baxter, Henry Ward Beecher and H. P. Liddon. Do you think it would make a difference to get the input of some of the greatest preachers who ever lived?
That’s precisely what Joseph Exell had in mind when he put together the massive series of volumes called The Biblical Illustrator. In what can only be called a Herculean feat, he spent years gathering preaching notes and sermon outlines from the very best preachers of his day (in the late 1800s and early 1900s), and he did it covering every book of the Bible.
And it is amazingly comprehensive. Exell approached his task by taking every verse in the Bible and seeking to discover how it has been preached in the past. Though there is plenty of exegetical material here, this is not primarily a commentary.
This series is for preachers, teachers, Bible students and anyone else looking for penetrating pastoral insights from some of the all-time greats of the faith.

“A promise from God may very instructively be compared to a check payable to order,” wrote Spurgeon. “It is given to the believer with the view of bestowing upon him some good thing. It is not meant that he should read it over comfortably, and then have done with it. No, he is to treat the promise as a reality, as a man treats a check.”
C.H. Spurgeon is best known for his reasonalble and rational sermons and teachings. He preached to thousands in England during the 1800s; many times in contradiction to the established church beliefs.

Common and vivid illustrations such as limpets at the seaside, a cup by the fountain, and fighting a swarm of flies with a sword characterizes the simple yet eternal truths of the gospel as shared by C.H. Spurgeon, a Reformed Baptist preacher.
Always humbly directing the focus on the God of all grace, the author beckons his readers to accept salvation as the free and for nothing promise from a faithful heavenly Father of love.
"O friend, if what you have within you is natural, and only natural, it will not save you! The inward work must be supernatural; it must come of God, or it will miss the covenant blessing. A gracious life will be your own, even as Isaac was truly the child of Abraham; but still more it will be of God; for “Salvation is of the Lord.” We must be born from above. Concerning all our religious feelings and actions, we must be able to say,</p><p>'Lord, thou hast wrought all our works in us.'"

This bestselling ebook provides a historically accurate background of a Roman Centurion's armor then draws vital correlations to the spiritual armor God gives his children: the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, Feet Prepared with the Gospel of Peace, The Shield of Faith, The Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit. Glossy, full-color ebook will help you to ""stand firm in the faith.""
Learn to put on the full armor of God when facing temptations and struggles. The key to this best-selling Christian ebook is the insights brought by Paul's knowledge of a Centurion's armor. Having a correct picture in mind is important to accurately teaching and understanding this portion of Scripture. While many other illustrations of The Armor of God show armor from the Middle Ages, or other time periods, the Rose illustration presents historically accurate Roman armor. In a side-by-side fold-out format, The Armor of God ebook describes each piece of armor, its historical background, and its application to our spiritual battles today.
The Apostle Paul knew how important it was for believers to understand the provision of spiritual armor that God made for them. Paul's teaching to the Church at Ephesus was born out of firsthand knowledge of Roman Centurions' armor. He saw them up close on many occasions.
The Armor of God ebook provides the following information:

•Historical background on how the armor was put on and its purpose
•The application of the armor to our lives today, such as how the "Belt of Truth" prepares believers to be truthful

•Background information on Paul, his missionary journey, and life in Ephesus
•A chart that helps believers stand firm in spiritual warfare by contrasting the "Devil's Schemes" with God's plan and the armor or weapon to combat it, and a Scriptural reference. For example: One of the Devil's schemes is LIES. God's plan/armor is Truth. Proverbs 14:25 would be a good reminder of God's plan

Paul had a greater impact on the formation of the Christian church than any other apostle. He wrote thirteen of the twenty-seven books of the New Testament so that nearly half of the New Testament documents bear his name. Although some of Paul’s letters are brief compared to other New Testament books, his epistles compromise approximately one-fourth of the total volume of the New Testament.
Approximately sixteen chapters of the Book of Acts focus on Paul’s persecution of the church, conversion, missionary labors, arrest and imprisonment. When these chapters are combined with Paul’s letters, Paul may be recognized as the author or subject of nearly one-third of the New Testament. Paul was not only the most effective Christian missionary and church planter in history, but also the most significant and influential interpreter of Jesus’ teachings and of the significance of Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, and return.
This book introduces readers to this amazing man and his incredible story. It explains the background of each of Paul’s letters and offers a summary of the beliefs of one of the keenest theological minds in the history of the church. All along, it enables the reader an opportunity to step into the world of Paul with over 150 photos, maps, illustrations, and charts.

The right-hand pages walk through Luke’s passion narrative, a few verses at a time, with explanations and reflections along the way. It’s an ancient way of praying the Scriptures – called lectio divina.
The left-hand page has a variety of quotes, information, and timely thoughts. Treat it like a buffet table from which you can take what you like. (If pressed for time, go directly to the right-hand page and spend your time there.) On Sundays and on various left-hand pages, we’ll especially call to mind the poor this Lenten season, remembering Pope Francis’ words that “(a)mong our tasks as witnesses to the love of Christ is that of giving a voice to the cry of the poor.”
