atkins-bookshelf-quotations“Hope itself is like a star — not to be seen in the sunshine of prosperity, and only to be discovered in the night of adversity. ”

From the Devotional Classics of Charles Haddon Spurgeon (2008). Spurgeon (1834-92) was one of England’s best-known Baptist preachers, regarded as the “Prince of Preachers.” He was a prolific writing, having delivered more than 1,900 sermons to congregations as large as 10,000 parishioners. Spurgeon’s magnum opus was The Treasury of David that includes his commentary on every verse of the Psalms. The book, almost 3,000 pages long, was completed in 1885 and is considered the most comprehensive pastoral study of the Psalms ever written. Because his writings have always been always been in print, he is often quoted.
