Advice for Seekers

"Soul, dost thou desire eternal life? Is there within thy spirit a hungering and thirsting after such things as may satisfy thy spirit and make thee live forever? Then 'Come for all things are ready'."

     Attic Books is a division of New Leaf Press that reprints antique books while maintaining the vintage appearance. Titles include biographies, classics, and church resources. Advice for Seekers by Charles Spurgeon is one of the Attic Books. 

     Advice for Seekers is both comforting and challenging. The original language was maintained in this reprint, so it doesn't have the same flow as modern English. Every page in this book points the seeker to Jesus Christ. 
"To believe that which God says, to do that which God bids, to take that salvation which God provides-- that is man's highest and best wisdom... Trust in the Incarnate Saviour, whom God appointed to stand in the stead of sinners."

      The author shares how Jesus is the mediator between God and man, an approachable Saviour. There are timeless truths shared in this small book.
"Solid peace with God is not to be found through the mere reception of any creed, no matter how true or scriptural. "Ye must be born again" means a good deal more than you must believe certain dogmas... you must press beyond this. You must come to the living, personal Christ, once crucified, but now living to plead at the right hand of God, or else your acceptance of the soundest creed cannot avail for the salvation of your soul. Salvation lies in Jesus only." 

Advice for Seekers
Charles H. Spurgeon

Many people get lost in their faith walk by using the map of their own understanding rather than the guidance of God. Spurgeon, one of Christianity’s most enduring influences, helps set the seeker on the path of peace. In his classic work, Advice for Seekers, Spurgeon offers Scriptural truths to help remove the obstacles so the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ can be grasped.
From his own experiences and his years of ministry, C.H. Spurgeon shares a gentle spirit of grace through his words to comfort and encourage those desiring to know the Lord. 
Chapters inside this exquisite reproduction of a late 1890’s classic work include:
  • Do not Try to Save Yourself
  • Despised Ones Seeking Jesus
  • Seekers Touching Christ
  • Still no Light and Why?
  • and 9 more
Apart from Biblical writers, Spurgeon is considered to be history’s most widely read preacher. Called the “prince of preachers,” he is said to have preached the gospel to over ten million people in his lifetime.
