In this well-known daily devotional, Charles Spurgeon provides the wealth of God's promises into the Christian’s personal account of faith. In his characteristic pastoral manner, Spurgeon warmly exhorts the reader to see every promise that God has made to His children as a check that He has written, which is to be received and cashed by personally endorsing the gift it signifies. The believer will be led day by day through God’s guarantees and pledges to His people supplying comfort, wisdom and understanding from His word.

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. ( )

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was a British Particular Baptist preacher who still remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is still known as the "Prince of Preachers". This despite the fact that he was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition, defending the Church in agreement with the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith understanding, against liberalism and pragmatic theological tendencies even in his day. Spurgeon's quotes apply just as much today as they did in the 19th century, where he preached to a congregation of at least six thousand every week. ( )

Each page starts off with scripture, and is supplemented with thoughts that set you pondering the rest of the day. The quotes of Spurgeon have been preserved in 19th century English, and that adds to the charm of this book. If you appreciate messages that are direct and straight to the point, then I am sure that you will love this book. ( )
