Cheque Book of the Bank of Faith (C.H.Spurgeon)

I owned a softcover copy of this old book in Spanish. I never had one in English until CFP sent me one for a reviewing purpose. My surprise was the beautiful design and layout of this book. Its size is similar to a conventional cheque book, designed to fit into an inside-pocket of a jacket or in a bag. They have other three devotional or daily reading books bound so as well.

It is bound in Italian two-tone burgundy and tan leather, housing a fine type of Bible paper (lightweight offset paper) with gilt edges and with the title engraved on the cover and the spine of the book. In fact when you read it, it seems you are reading a small Bible (171 x 82mm). A magnificent work by Charles Letts, Scotland. In fact Letts is the world’s most foremost purveyor of exquisitely crafted refined diaries and notebooks. See more at http://lettscorporatediaries.co.uk

This is the seventh edition, the first was in 1996, ensuring this publication has been well accepted. It is important that the presentation of a book gathers the best conditions to not be abandoned sooner or difficult to read. In this case, not only binding, but the same typeface has been carefully made to ensure the pleasure of reading a devotional book.

For typography they have selected an Oldstyle font, size 10, which makes it pleasing to the eye.
No introductions, other content, and a clean presentation, the verse day in a pure KJV begins with an italic typeface, continuing the comment of CH Spurgeon about it. Here is the comment of the editorial about the content:

A short reading for every day. Spurgeon wrote this selection of readings to encourage believers to enter into the full provision that their relationship to Jesus entitled them to realise, on a daily basis. He explains we have to present the promises of Scripture to God in prayer and faith, anticipating that he will honour what he has said.

As an extra for this publication, I will add that the first translation into Spanish was made by a missionary lady in the church where I gather in Spain, called Ms. Rachel Chesterman, from Bath, England, c. XIX century.

In my opinion, CFP has done an excellent job with the publication in this style and quality at a reasonable price, which is available in www.christianfocus.com .
