Much better than the modern book of the same name

I was surprised to see that Charles Spurgeon was the writer of this book, and I just couldn't imagine that his teaching on the prayer of Jabez would be anything similar to the modern book by Bruce Wilkinson. Thankfully, it is not. Spurgeon, in his down-to-earth, matter of fact style, gives his take on Jabez's request, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed...." I didn't count the number of times Spurgeon repeated that phrase in this book, but it was enough to become a bit too much. I understand the reason that he continued going back to the phrase; it just seemed to me that he could have accomplished the same message without so much repetition. That said, I believe that Mr. Spurgeon's interpretation of Jabez's plea to the Lord is spot-on, and far above the interpretation of Wilkinson. Jabez's request was not a selfish request for advancement or riches; it was a request made of a pure heart to be used by God, and to not become what his name implied, that he would cause pain to others.
