For almost 160 years, Charles Haddon Spurgeon’s earliest sermons were lost to history. Thanks to Christian George and Spurgeon’s College, these powerful words from one of the world’s most popular preachers are now widely accessible to be read, studied, and enjoyed in the twelve volumes of the Lost Sermons of C. H. Spurgeon series. This journal contains Spurgeon’s own inspirational words culled from these early sermons. On the page directly following each quote, you’ll find the source—the name and number of one of Spurgeon’s early sermons—for easy reference. In addition, the customizable table of contents at the front of the journal and the date feature at the top of each page allow you to keep your thoughts organized. Whether you use your journal for writing sermons, taking notes, or daily journaling, allow Spurgeon’s stirring words to speak to your life today.
This book is titled “Spurgeon Journal” and I guess that I thought there would be more quotes and inspiration to draw from inside. As far as journals go, it’s very well made and would make a wonderful gift for a pastor or someone who loves to write in a journal. The customizable table of contents makes it easy for a person to keep their thoughts and topics (or sermons of their own) organized and easy to find.
The book is well constructed with 140 acid-free pages. It is lightweight which would make it a nice journal to slide into your Bible cover or purse. There are a few quotes here and there from Charles Spurgeon’s early sermons but they’re placed at the bottom of the page—which I admit, I overlooked at first.
Overall, I love this journal, I just wish the quotes were in a more prominent position on the page so that I could better draw inspiration from them.
