Okay, I am not much for e-readers. I personally prefer the feel of a hard book in my hands, and would rather turn a page than swipe my finger across the screen of an e-reader. However, when given the opportunity to review the Spurgeon Series (1855-1856) I decided to go for it, simply because I absolutely love Spurgeon's writings. With over 1700 pages, I quickly realized the benefits of having this loaded onto my little tablet, rather than trying to lug around who-knows-how-many volumes!
I had downloaded the book a couple weeks ago, but really got to enjoy it this past weekend, when we took a road trip. Visiting a city about 5 hours away for a few days meant a lot of time in the car, and I spent quite a bit of that time reading the Spurgeon Series. This includes Charles Spurgeon's sermons from 1855-1856, and they have been updated into a more modern language for easier understanding. Personally, I kind of wish it had been left in the original language, as I read many books from the 1700-1800's, and have no trouble with the language differences. However, I know why they do this, for many people who aren't familiar with it. Aside from that though, I have nothing but good things to say about the Spurgeon Series!
As I read through this book (I don't think I'm even 1/3 of the way through yet, but I'm enjoying the journey :) I am amazed at the depth of knowledge Spurgeon had. Coupled with a deep love for the Lord and for people, I can not say enough just how wonderful this book is, and how grateful I am to be able to read these sermons, preached some 150 years ago, on my tablet! We truly have been blessed with our modern technology, and I appreciate people such as Larry and Marion Pierce, who go to the effort of making these easily accessible for everyone. Now you don't have to pay out a lot of money to buy Surgeon's Sermon series in multiple volumes; you can simply download it to your tablet, and start reading, learning and enjoying right away!
