Lessons for a Life of Joyful Eagerness in Christ
Mary K. Mohler
This is an extraordinary account of an extraordinary woman. Too often dismissed as the invalid wife of a great preacher, Susannah Spurgeon was in truth a ‘woman of valour’ (Proverbs 31:10) and a partner in the gospel with her husband. When the great explorer David Livingstone asked Spurgeon how he did the work of two men every day, the reply came: “You have forgotten that there are two of us, and the one you see the least of, often does the most work.”
Susannah did suffer years of chronic and debilitating illness, but through it all she looked eagerly for ways to serve the Lord. Her famous book ministry,
for example, supplied thousands of needy pastors and students with good literature. This is a delightful, engaging, and inspiring portrayal of Susannah’s life, with the bonus selection of extracts from her various devotional books.
Throughout, we are reminded that we can know even more of God’s grace as the burdens grow greater.
