Book Review- Advice for Seekers, by Charles H. Spurgeon
I was blessed with the opportunity to review the classic "Advice for seekers" recently released and published by Attic Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing. nlpg.com Charles Spurgeon was an influential Baptist Minister, who is known as the world's most influential preacher. This book was published initially in 1896, and Attic Books recreated it, complete with original spelling and style.
I have to admit, i do not read as many "old dead guys" as I know I should. We all have so much to learn from the old dead guys :) And in theology this is particularly true. I am glad i read this wonderful little gift book.
The first thing i noticed about the book when it arrived is its small, doable size. Its a durable hardcover book with beveled pages, staggered and choppy around the edges, very artsy. It made reading the book an experience in itself.
Spurgeon hits on the primary points of the Gospel in his brief 134 pages. He discusses topics such as
- Why Can't we save ourselves?
- What is our natural standing as fallen man?
- What is Jesus' role in our lives?
- How to be saved?
- If you are saved, why do you not FEEL saved?
- What does Repentance look like, and why is it important?
- What gives ME the right to obtain eternal life?
These answers and more are answered in a lyrical, yet, understandable way by Sturgeon. I'm grateful that Attic Books has reprinted this lovely little book.
