I started out well, but despite repeatedly seeing the words "little book" in the text, after a while, reading this at one sitting, I found myself having trouble keeping my focus on what the author was saying.

Some illustrations and quotes did strike me and I noted those in the sections on Shelfari's book page. ( )

This is a relatively short, simple, very very clear presentation of the evangelical gospel by one who has been called the prince of preachers. it is of benefit to be be read and understood by all. ( )

The Righteousness of God
In this short book Spurgeon exposes the meaning of God's grace and its effects in the life of men and women that answered his calling. The obstacles faced by the christian when he pursues God's will are overcomed by faith and this is a expression of God's grace. Our sins can be subdued when we experience God's grace. This gift from God makes us righteous, provides reconciliation with our holy God and gives us peace. A clear and illuminated exposition about a central article of christian faith. ( )

The first thing that surprised me about this book (I listened to the audiobook version) was the very formal use of language. This book is a good example of how differently people used to write, in such a way as would seem elitist now. I have become so used to "accessible" language that it's interested to hear the literary equivalent of old-fashioned BBC language.

It is also fascinating to hear an account that predates our recognition of so many varied religions. The argument for belief in Christ rests entirely on our willingness to accept Him into our lives. Not for a moment does Spurgeon seem to consider the possibility that the reader might question why the Bible should be considered as truth or that the Bible might be considered of no more weight than any other religious book. Christ existed. We know this; we know the Bible is true. End of story. The belief that all religion might be "fantasy" is clearly not one that the author even considers in his attempt to convert the reader.

Additionally, he is clearly of WASP origins because he talks about a relationship with God. The church, as an entity, does not appear to enter into the picture at all, and there is absolutely no attempt at discussion of how disagreement with a church might affect faith. The Bible alone is considered, not any intermediary on earth.

As an argument for faith, by today's standards it's enormously full of holes. But for me its fascination lies in its portrayal of a different era, when Christianity was not only dominant but apparently unquestioned. ( )
