‘Spurgeon always provides a solid meal and sustenance on which one can live … Never was the truth he preached and proclaimed, in such a winsome and powerful manner, more needed than today.’ — D. MARTYN LLOYD-JONES

Book Description

This is a newly typeset edition of the only commentary on a complete New Testament book ever written by C. H. Spurgeon. Originally published as The Gospel of the Kingdom, it was largely written during the last days of the great preacher’s life. ‘Such words acquire a solemnity and pathos with which nothing else could invest them’, wrote Mrs. Susannah Spurgeon when first introducing the volume in 1893 shortly after the death of her husband. ‘We listen almost as to a voice “from the excellent glory”.’

Spurgeon’s Commentary on Matthew therefore represents the fruit of a lifetime spend in the study and exposition of Scripture. It bears all the hallmarks of the genius of one who in his day was known as ‘the Prince of Preachers’- reverence for the very words of Scripture, faithful teaching, deep insight, practical application, profound simplicity and spiritual power. Above all, from start to finish, the reader is struck by the author’s unbounded devotion to and commendation of the Lord Jesus Christ- the King who is himself the gospel of the kingdom.
