Book Review: We Shall See God: Charles Spurgeon's classic devotional thoughts on Heaven

received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes from Tyndale House. The book, in short, is a compilation of Spurgeon's thoughts and views on Heaven. The most meaningful thoughts, according to Alcorn, are collected here in a useful devotional format. Alcorn also includes his own thoughts on Spurgeon's writings, which follow after each devotional. This was a mammoth task to take on and Alcorn has done and excellent job. 

If you like Spurgeon, you'll love having his thoughts on the topic of Heaven in such an easy to digest format. I find it helps keep one Heavenly minded, but not to the point where one would find himself to be of no earthly good. Alcorn has updated a bit of the language, thankfully, so that the meaning is not lost in, what is now, archaic language to many. I am pleased with Alcorn's effort. It stands out because it's not been done before, as far as this blogger is aware of, and for the fact that Alcorn has become recognized as one who is familiar with the subject of Heaven. I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to delve into Spurgeon.
