Besides the Bible and Spurgeon, what else do you read as a part of your devotions?
My list of preferred devotionals is as follows (using In the Hour of Silence currently):
William Jay, Morning and Evening Exercises for the Closet
Charles Spurgeon, Morning and Evening
Charles Spurgeon, Faith's Chequebook
Octavius Winslow, Morning and Evening Thoughts
I.D.E. Thomas, Puritan Daily Devotional Chronicles
Randall Pederson, Day by Day With the English Puritans
Randall Pederson, Day by Day With Jonathan Edwards
Mark Fackler, Day by Day With John Calvin
Henry Law, Daily Prayer and Praise
William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete Armour: Daily Readings in Spiritual Warfare
Alexander Smellie, In the Hour of Silence
John Calvin, Heart Aflame: Daily Readings from Calvin on the Psalms
John Brown of Haddington, Notes on the Psalter
Matthew Henry KJV Study Bible
Valley of Vision
I use Spurgeon's five volume sermon set for my devotional stuff.
I've found My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers very usefull over the years. Though I don't always agree with him.
I had used the Devotionals from Tabletalk, but I fell out of the habit (though I still read the articles) the devotions are pretty good!
My wife and I do Tabletalk in the mornings, along with the requisite Bible reading to go along with it, before we pray together.
That a good pattern! The thing I like about TT devotions are the Scripture "tie ins" with the devotions!
The fourth one down is what I have; 3.5" by 6" and hardcover!
Did a little searchin:
Table of Contents
I really do appreciate Alexander Smellie. He makes my last name seem normal!
Does anyone know if the Henry Law listed above is related to William Law, the one who discipled John and Charles Wesley for awhile?
I reviewed their biographical entries in the DNB and did not note any genealogical connection between William Law (1686 - 1761) and Henry Law (1797 - 1884), but I can't say for sure.
Henry Law's work on the Psalms is available online here.
We have been using Daily Reading J.C. Ryle which has been excellent
I can't really add to the old stuff, because it's already been listed. But for some contemporaries, try:
John Piper - What Jesus Demands from the World, 50 Reasons Christ Came to Die, Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ, Taste and See, Pierced by the Word, Life as a Vapor.
C.J. Mahaney - Living the Cross Centered Life
John MacArthur - Truth for Today: A Daily Touch of God's Grace
Lloyd-Jones has a devotional too.
Which of these would be palatable for the older crowd who is used to "The Daily Bread"?
For the devotions being short, enjoyable to read, and packed with truth said in few words, I would advocate the Gadsby's Hymnal. I've given it to nearly every member of my church, old and young both. The old love it, and it even comes in a large print version, though a little more expensive.
but any of you old UMC people remember The Upper Room.
I remember my mom picking up the new copy every Sunday!
My mom still gets hers!
D. A. Carson published two volumes of very intelligently written devotionals (devotionals with meat on their bones) back in the 1990s. They are both very good - and still in print.
