We Shall See God - Randy Alcorn

Charles Spurgeon's classic devotional thoughts on Heaven. I must first admit that Randy Alcorn is one of my favorite authors. I have enjoyed all of his non fiction works including this one. Randy has divided each chapter into 50 daily readings from Spurgeon with commentary from the author after each one. Spurgeon's material has not been widely available in our day, but was very popular in his time.
Charles Spurgeon has left quite a legacy of speaking and writing. He lived from 1834-1892, and preached 3,561 sermons that have been compiled into 63 volumes and totals over 20 million words. Until now, a lot of this material was not found easily. It is good to see these updated sermons in one volume.
It is not a book one would read once straight through, but should refer to chapters as reference. This is as much a Alcorn book as a Spurgeon one, which is not to downgrade the quality of the material at all. To those that are not aware, 100% of the royalties from all of Randy's books go to further Christ-centered causes. Randy is also founder of Eternal Perspective Ministries. I would recommend this book as a reference tool for any pastor, or anyone interested in church history in general, and Spurgeon in particular.
