Many consider Spurgeon to be probably the greatest, and most influential, preacher that Britain has ever produced. Thousands flocked to his church every week at the turn of the 20th Century. Millions have since read his words through his sermons and books in print. It is a fair assumption that Spurgeon has had more of his words published than any other Christian Minister. Why? because Spurgeon is direct, clear and concerned about his readers. Here is the foundation of Spurgeon's ministry - his desire to see people come to trust Jesus so that they can spend eternity with God in heaven. It is a personal, passionate plea to you to consider where you are spiritually and the consequences of that. Spurgeon points you to how Jesus can provide security against your moral failings in front of a holy God, whom one day you will meet. Book jacket.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, (1834 - 1892) served for thirty years as preacher and pastor of London's six-thousand-seat Metropolitan Tabernacle. Converted in 1850 at the age of fifteen, he began to help the poor and to hand out tracts; he was known as "The Boy Preacher." He preached his first sermon at the age of sixteen. At age eighteen, he became the pastor of Waterbeach Baptist Chapel, preaching in a barn. In 1856, Spurgeon married Susannah Thompson; they had twin sons, both of whom later entered the ministry. Spurgeon's compelling sermons and lively preaching style drew multitudes of people, and many came to Christ. Soon, the crowds had grown so large that they blocked the narrow streets near the church. Services eventually had to be held in rented halls, and Spurgeon often preached to congregations of more than ten thousand. The Metropolitan Tabernacle was built in 1861 to accommodate the large numbers of people. The prime minister of England, members of the royal family, and Florence Nightingale, among others, went to hear him preach. Spurgeon preached to an estimated ten million people throughout his life. Not surprisingly, he is called the "Prince of Preachers". In addition to his powerful preaching, Spurgeon founded and supported charitable outreaches, including educational institutions. He also founded the famous Stockwell Orphanage. His writings, including thousands of sermons, are still popular with pastors and devotional readers who, like him, treasure the gospel of God's grace.
