The Spurgeon Commentary: 1 John 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 Outdated language has even been updated, making Spurgeon’s writing easier than ever to understand.
