NOTE: These are Spurgeon's original devotions from the 19th century they sometimes use language that seems archaic to us, but you'll be able to understand and be blessed by the wisdom of this great preacher and theologian.

    Excellent Adaptation of a Daily Devotional Book

    Tap on the icon and you are opened to today's devotional reading. I particularly like the ability to swipe forward and backwards to read other day's text. The font is easy to read and the page layout is attractive. I purchased the book version but have to admit there is no way I will read it as long as this App is on my Nook Color.

    Not for a newer generation

    The language in the app is not very contemporary and very difficult to understand. The messages seem to be taken from old pamphlets or a daily promise book from decades ago for a very different era. I'm glad they provided a link to Bible Gateway that defaults to the translation of your choice, but nothing can translate the badly written messages. At first I tried to read it daily but I've just gotten mentally exhausted and frustrated with the old english. I would also like to see the colors and background to change per day or per opening to add a little interest.

    Great Messages/Verses

    You should know that the verses are in KJV. I normally don't read the KJV but it wasn't a big deal because it's still the word of God. The author is not very modern either but you will understand. That said, I found the app to be very easy to use, neat, and nicely made. The messages were great and even if it's things you already know, it's great to have a daily reminder anyway. :) God bless!

    Beautiful app

    I first tried Daily Bible Devotions, but then found this app and I like it so much better! Much easier on the eyes, always have the next days reading without having to wait days for them to update, and while the language can be a little archaic at times, to me it hits closer to home and the heart. Thanks for helping me draw nearer to the Lord!
