Advice for Seekers

Title:  Advice for Seekers
Author:  Charles H. Spurgeon
Pages:  142
Year:  2013
Publisher:  Attic Books
                Over the years, I have read many different perspectives or reviews on Spurgeon as a man, his faith and his writings.  There are some who would agree with him and others who wouldn’t.  Yet once in awhile it is good to read something written by Charles Spurgeon as food for the mind, heart and soul.  I found this small book so very rich for every part of my being.  Advice for Seekers is written for those who have reasons for not considering the claims of Christ or haven’t really taken time to consider fully who He is or what He has done.
                If you are a Christian, then I would still highly recommend the “advice” given herein.  Why?  Regardless of how long or short your walk with the Lord has been time isn’t the measuring stick, but Christ.  As we walk in our respective fields of employment, homes and such, we can forget the simplest yet most profound Person.  Sometimes as we gather with others who are likeminded we tend to no longer know how to speak to them in a way that causes them to stop and consider in their hearts this God we worship.
                I recommend a copy for personal libraries of homes all around the globe, right next to the Bible.  When life gets busy or emotions are awry, it is hard to know where in the Bible to read and find comfort.  Perhaps this small book and the heart of this pastor can help steer the most torn up soul.  It has been written as well as spoken that where we set our eyes there we will be most influenced.  So give pause in your day and ask yourself, “Where am I looking?”
                Spurgeon, with simplicity and conviction of heart, will move you toward Christ as you read through the pages.  If you need refreshment or a fire rekindled within the depths of your soul, remember you aren’t alone in these experiences.  Others have gone through this before.  Spurgeon is such a man who left behind words that ring with truth, conviction and exhortation.
                Whether you are a fan of his writings or not, don’t base your decision of reading nor purchasing a copy on that standard alone.  Consider where you are right now in your walk with Christ, in fellowship with others and be willing to open up your heart to being renewed.  The book is not a theological debate nor is it loaded with words that are of academic consideration; it is simple, plain and forthright.  Published with the very words of Spurgeon as he wrote them and now available for us today for serious and prayerful thought by readers everywhere.  Grab a copy and perhaps give a copy away as a gift.
                My rating is 5 stars.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
