Interesting Bible Resource

This is a very interesting Bible resource published by Attic Books, a division of New Leaf Press.  It is a collection of sermons from Charles Spurgeon from 1859-1860.  The sermons are written in modern language, but they are unabridged and presented in their entirety.

I don’t know that I’ve ever read any of Spurgeon’s complete sermons.  These were written with the Scripture passage at the top and the main points given in a numbered outline form.  That made it easy to read for my organized brain.

I also liked that on this Kindle version, the sermons are listed and are easy to get to with one click (or touch).  That made it really easy to choose a sermon topic to read.  I think this is what will really make this a good Bible resource.

The sermons are long.  And even in modern language, I think they would be difficult reading for all but the well-read high schooler.  The outline form does help to put the thoughts into a coherent form.

There are 112 sermons here.  It is quite the lengthy book.  I can’t imagine sitting down and reading it straight through.  For my purpose, I would use the book as a reference.  Because it is listed by topic/title, I can envision assigning a student a reading that was applicable to a specific topic of study.

This is a great reference book to have available for home and school.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for review purposes.  All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
