Her late husband, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the English Baptist pastor renowned as the “Prince of Preachers,” had written the book. The book, a commentary on the gospel of Matthew, was Spurgeon’s final work, which Susie described as “the last sweet, loving labor for the Master’s glory of...

Jesus Flips the Script, by Ryan Stanley

The way Jesus interacts with people is usually quite surprising. You think you know what he is going to say, but he goes a completely different direction.
