From the Writings of Charles H. Spurgeon

"A record of combat with sin and of labour for the Lord." C. H. Spurgeon

This tab contains a daily devotion from the pen and heart of Charles H. Spurgeon. We entitled it Sword and Trowel but these devotions are culled from a variety of Spurgeon publications.

Sword and the Trowel was the monthly magazine edited by Charles Spurgeon who was known as the "Prince of Preachers." He was England's best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. Spurgeon was a prolific author of sermons, an autobiography, commentaries, books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns. 

Morning and Evening: a further compilation of devotional readings by Spurgeon. 

Faith's Cheque Book: Precious Promises Arranged for Daily Use by Spurgeon.
