The Talking Book...

Spurgeon's, "The Talking Book"

The Bible sanctifies and moulds the mind into the image of Christ.

You cannot expect to grow in grace if you do not read the Scriptures.

If you are not familiar with the word, you cannot
 expect to become like Him that spoke it.

Oh, be much with the holy word of God, and you will be holy.

Be much with the silly novels of the day,
and the foolish trifles of the hour,
and you will degenerate into vapid wasters of your time.

But be much with the solid teachings of God's word,
and you will become solid and substantial men and women:
drink them in, and feed upon them, and they shall produce
in you a Christ-likeness, at which the world shall stand astonished.
