Whispers of Truth: Advice for Seekers

About the Book: Many people get lost in their faith walk by using the map of their own understanding rather than the guidance of God. Spurgeon, one of Christianity’s most enduring influences, helps set the seeker on the path of peace. In his classic work, Advice for Seekers, Spurgeon offers Scriptural truths to help remove the obstacles so the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ can be grasped.

From his own experiences and his years of ministry, C.H. Spurgeon shares a gentle spirit of grace through his words to comfort and encourage those desiring to know the Lord.

Chapters inside this exquisite reproduction of a late 1890’s classic work include:
  • Do not Try to Save Yourself
  • Despised Ones Seeking Jesus
  • Seekers Touching Christ
  • Still no Light and Why?
  • and 9 more
Apart from Biblical writers, Spurgeon is considered to be history’s most widely read preacher. Called the “prince of preachers,” he is said to have preached the gospel to over ten million people in his lifetime.

My Review:
The first thing I noticed about this book before I ever read it was how it has that old time look and feel to it. The rough edges, thick paper. I loved it All it was lacking was the leather cover and book marker to go with it. Reminds me of my journal.This is the first thing I've ever read by Spurgeon, but the whole time I read it I was being drawn back to a time only 8 years ago when I was on the fence about committing my life to Christ, for Christ.

                "There are people sincerely seeking out the truth; wanting to know more of the Lord and      the Bible, though not committed as disciples yet. They are asking questions and wanting to know more before making this most serious of decisions."

I kept thinking I had to be good enough, sinless enough, proper enough, worthy enough to have Gods love and forgiveness. That someone my works could be brought before God, laid at His feat and be acceptable, if only I tried hard enough, then I could commit my life to Him and be saved. The Advise for Seekers chapter had my heart and demanded my attention the whole way through. It never ceases to amaze me how so many people struggle with the same questions and how timeless Gods words are.

This is a wonderful book to have on hand for those who are struggling with accepting Christ.  It is filled with truth, the power of grace and love and how blessed we truly are that God sent Jesus for us all.Spurgeon knows what your excuses are before you even say and how to elevate those fears and show you Gods way.
