Since the days he shook the pulpits of Victorian London with
Christ-centered passion, each succeeding generation discovers
Charles Spurgeon anew. Featuring Easter topics in time for the
season, this collection offers homiletic gems from the "Prince
of Preachers." In sermons as timeless as their topics, Spurgeon
combines keen intellect, scriptural truth, and a zeal for making
God known to a world in darkness.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was Victorian
England's most gifted pastor. Ordained at age twenty, just
four years after his conversion, Spurgeon opened his career of
spectacularly effective preaching at London's New Park Street
Chapel. Even in his own time, Spurgeon's printed sermons-
there were nearly 3,600 of them-were prized by fellow
preachers for their ideal homiletic models, and by ordinary
believers for their deeply devotional encouragement to follow
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.
