Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was born in Essex, England, and became a Baptist minister. In fact, he was probably Britain’s best-known preacher of the nineteenth century, serving with the New Park Street Baptist Chapel in Southwark, London, which he built into the Metropolitan Tabernacle. In addition to his public speaking, Spurgeon was involved in several charitable organizations, including an orphanage in Stockwell, and had an extensive influence through his writings.
Cheque Book of the Bank of Faith, a copy of which was given to me by a friend, is a set of 365 daily readings, each with a passage of Scripture containing some promise of God and a devotional application of that passage and its promise. In fact, the original subtitle was “Being Precious Promises Arranged for Daily Use.” There might be some of the readings where certain people would disagree a bit with Spurgeon’s theology, especially a few which sound overly Calvinistic and one that appears to be Premillennial. However, for the most part, they are quite scriptural and could serve adequately as a good year’s worth of devotional readings. There is an index of the Scripture texts in the back. Another similar Spurgeon devotional book, Morning and Evening, is also published by Christian Focus.
