"John Ploughman’s Pictures" is the second in the series of two "Ploughman Books" by Charles Spurgeon. Spurgeon took common phrases off the day and used them to teach spiritual lessons. Spurgeon told his Parables, or talks, from the point of view of an English Plowman named John, and he tried to mix truth and humor in his tales. Familiar phrases recognizable in this book are “If the cap fits wear it” and “Don’t Put the cart before the horse”. Filled with good advice, each chapter’s adage is illustrated by an interesting and sometimes humorous sketch.
