The Spurgeon Commentary: Titus makes Spurgeon’s content accessible—there’s no longer a need to comb through many volumes looking for one nugget of wisdom. Spurgeon’s writings are now curated in a format that is tied directly to the biblical text.
The commentary directs you to places where Spurgeon explicitly cites or alludes to a verse, using specialized, technology-based research to offer you the best of Spurgeon. It highlights illustration content: illustrations accompany the commentary and are tagged with preaching themes, so the preacher looking for an illustration relating to either a topic or a verse will be able to find one easily. It highlights application content: each section of Scripture includes at least one application from Spurgeon based on those verses. It saves time: reading Spurgeon for pleasure is wonderful, but preachers and teachers working under deadlines need ways to streamline their sermon preparation process. This commentary does all this by trimming the excess out of Spurgeon’s sermon archive and increasing functionality, usability, and readability. Outdated language has even been updated, making Spurgeon’s writing easier than ever to understand.
“‘God is not a man that he should lie, nor a son of humankind that he should change his mind’ (Num 23:19). The word ‘lie’ here includes beyond its ordinary meaning the thought of change, so that when we read that God cannot lie we understand by it not only that He cannot say what is untrue, but that having said something that is true He never changes from it and does not by any possibility alter His purpose or retract His word. This is very consolatory to the Christian—that whatever God has said in the divine purpose is never changed. The decrees of God were not written upon sand but upon the eternal brass of His unchangeable nature.” (Page 268)
“The infirmities of old age often create petulance, so the grace of God is to make the venerable Christian to be full of faith, love, and endurance.” (Page 297)
“If it is so that God cannot lie, then it must be the natural duty of all His creatures to believe Him.” (Page 276)
“If God has given us His peace, it is a treasure of untold value, a ‘very valuable pearl’ (Matt 13:46). To be at peace with God is better than to be a millionaire or Czar of all the Russias. Peace of mind, restfulness of heart, quiet of spirit, deliverance from care, from quarrelling, from complaining—I know that I need that kind of peace, and you need it too, do you not? You need it in your family, in your business, in your own hearts. Well, then, here we meet again, having this same need of peace. And when we get it, we meet once more in finding the same delicious enjoyment of it.” (Page 274)
“Churches without elders are like an army without officers. Those err greatly who despise order.” (Page 281)
