Charles Haddon Spurgeon (June 19, 1834-lanuary 31, 1892), the "Prince of Preachers," pastured the New Park Street Chapel-later the Metropolitan Tabernacle-for 38 years. (The Metropolitan Tabernacle was built to accommodate his growing audience. It could seat 5,000 people and allowed for another 1,000 standing room.) He held his audiences spellbound before the advent of electronic amplification. Many of his sermons were transcribed and published in a number of languages. The carefully selected sermons in this book focus on C. H. Spurgeon's teachings from the pulpit on Jesus Christ and on His great sacrifice. Through the blood of Jesus Christ, Christians experience the redeeming, cleansing, and preserving power that results in purification, sanctification, and atonement. C. H. Spurgeon goes into great depth on a number of themes familiar to Christians but which, with the added insight and vision he provides, become new, vivid, exciting, and enlightening. These include baptism, Justification, peace, communion, and reconciliation. 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.
