Meet the Author
Charles H Spurgeon
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.

Spurgeon's reputation as the "prince of preachers" precedes him - few Christians would not know who he is. The topic at hand in "Holy Spirit Power" is The Holy Spirit and while many Christians understand God the Father and God the Son (Jesus), The Holy Spirit is a much more difficult concept to grasp. This little pocket book compiles a few sermons that Spuregon preached on the subject of The Holy Spirit and it's a great little pocket book to have in your back pocket to edify you. While Spurgeon was no doubt a powerful preacher I personally find his language "flowery" at times but any paragraph where I feel he waxes overly lyrical about something is quickly offset by the next paragraph which is usually hard hitting and condenses a complex matter into a few simple sentences that are powerful. If you find yourself asking questions such as "Is The Holy Spirit a person or a 'thing'" then I suggest you pick up this cheap book and read what the prince of preachers had to say on the subject. Well worth it and Spurgeon never disappoints. Recommended.
Once again after reading a Charles Spurgeon book I am left inspired and encouraged in my faith. Keeping the gospel as the focus, he outlines the characteristics of the holy spirit in a very informative and easy to follow way. Practical wisdom in how to respond to the holy spirit is included which refreshes the reader. By learning about this key area of Christian doctrine, any christian reader will be left brimming with joy.
