New from Cross-Points Publishing: O Death, Where Is Your Sting? Classic Sermons on Dying in Christ and Our Heavenly Hope by Charles Spurgeon, available in paperback and Kindle editions.
O Death Where Is Your Sting shares six powerful sermons on death by Charles H. Spurgeon, the Prince of Preachers, to lift your eyes from the vanity and hopelessness of this world to the eternal hope all believers have in Jesus Christ. Death brings much pain and sorrow, but take heart that “The Believer’s Deathday Better Than His Birthday” and the deaths of God’s people are “Precious Deaths” because they mark the day of our heavenly homegoing.
Spurgeon’s Scripture-saturated preaching has lifted grieving souls for generations. I hope this new volume of classic sermons will do the same for you, whether you consider the fate that will come upon us all, grieve the loss of a loved one, or walk through the valley of the shadow of death yourself.
“Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 KJV
“Death in itself cannot be a theme for rejoicing with God. But death in the case of believers is another matter. To them, it is not death to die; it is a departure out of this world unto the Father, a being unclothed that we may be clothed upon, a falling asleep, an entrance into the Kingdom.” C. H. Spurgeon
