Charles Spurgeon, the great Baptist preacher of nineteenth-century London, is remembered today as the prince of preachers. However, the strength of Spurgeon s ministry went far beyond simple rhetorical skill. With a foundational commitment to the Bible, Spurgeon fearlessly taught the doctrines of grace and tirelessly held forth the free offer of salvation in Jesus Christ. In short, he was a firm believer in the truth of the gospel and the power of the gospel to save.
- Excellent, but over emphasis on Calvinism
I listened to this after listening to Spurgeon's autobiography in 2 parts, the early years and the harvest. This book cannot hold a candle to Spurgeon's autobio, but this is much shorter. It still added some interesting points that I had not picked up in the autobio.
One thing I did not like about this book was what I thought was an overemphasis on Calvinism. Spurgeon preached Calvinism, but not like it is taught today. Today's Calvinists teaching once-saved-always-saved do not teach what Spurgeon taught, and were Spurgeon's main detractors.
- Awsome & encouraging
Encouraged me to a deeper level whit Christ
- Always an encouragement!
Always a great encouragement when I read Spurgeon. And this biography shows me why that is. Spurgeon loved the doctrines of grace, and so do I.
