Read an Excerpt

As a busy minister, Charles Haddon Spurgeon cherished the rare opportunities that allowed him time to visit with close friends. On one such occasion, when Dr. Theodore Cuyler of Brooklyn came to England, Spurgeon invited him for a walk through the woods-another pastime Spurgeon loved yet seldom had time for. During the walk, Spurgeon surprised his guest with a rather unexpected comment. Their conversation must have been lighthearted and even mirthful, for suddenly Spurgeon stopped and said, "Come, Theodore, let us thank God for laughter." Later, when Dr. Cuyler spoke of this particular visit, he said, "That was how he lived. From a jest to a prayer meant with him the breadth of a straw."
