An Exposition of the Gospel According to Matthew: The Gospel of the Kingdom
by Charles H. Spurgeon
First published posthumously in 1893, the year following his death, this volume represents the only New Testament commentary written by Spurgeon and is reproduced here in a facsimile reprint of the original edition published by Passmore and Alabaster, Spurgeon’s publishers. To this 263-page work we have added portraits and other illustrations, but most importantly, a collection of selected unpublished letters to and from Spurgeon, as well as some of his manuscript book reviews and sermon outlines. Transcriptions of each of these has been provided, along with interesting information on the persons and subjects addressed in the correspondence. A glossy insert of color reproductions of some of the more significant letters is included and a previously unpublished work, “Letters on the Down-Grade Controversy, with Notes by Dr. Eric Hayden,” with additional Spurgeon letters, completes this volume. These important additions to our reprint of this fine commentary should make this a highly collectible book. Black cloth hardcover, with gold stamping and color dust-jacket. 70 illustrations. 384 pages.
A note we received:
"Can you tell I was really excited this morning about the commentary? First, let me say that the library just received your latest publication, An Exposition of Matthew: The Gospel of the Kingdom by Charles Spurgeon. It is a beautiful facsimile of his posthumous commentary beginning with the photo and introduction by Susannah Spurgeon, the copy of the text, and the piece de resistance, the glossy reproductions of handwritten letters by the Prince of Preachers. Thank you for your excellent work on bringing back another Particular Baptist classic!" --J. Brodrick, Director of Library Services, Grace Bible College
Another note received lately: "Rev. Spurgeon was an exceptional Christian writer. It might not be the easiest of reading, but every sentence has so much meaning. Thanks again." --J & S from Missouri

I received this volume a week ago, and I am noe readung it devotionaly. The way Spurgeon writes is with the intent towards always to setting your affection on things above, and specifically on our blessed Savior Jesus Christ. This volume also has many letters ( in the back of this volume written by Spurgeon which I find very interesting and encouraging! I've been immensely blessed even in reading over these first 15 pages or so, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of it as well! This is the last of Spurgeons's work, just before He went to his heavenly reward! I highly reccomend this volume! You will be greatly encouraged, and immensely built up by reading and considering the contents therein.
I have always been a student of Charles Spurgeon. He is one of the best, if not the best, of the great Bible expositors of our past generations. However, I have been unaware until this volume was released that Mr. Spurgeon had written a commentary. This commentary is written in his familiar characteristic style. No avid Bible scholar, minister or Bible teacher should.be without this volume. Spurgeon's observations in the Gospel of Matthew will add a great deal to your study and proclamation of the truths found in this particular gospel. I would urge you to order your copy while they are in stock. It is an excellent value. I possess the entire Newport Commentary series and I am most gratified that I have added this latest edition to my set.
