Charles Spurgeon is one the most notable expositors of scripture. Hence the clarity of thought and perspective presented in these sermon volumes are outstanding. Even if you're not a preacher, its truly a wonderful resource for all lovers of scripture.
I was weary to make this purchase after reading so many negative reviews on the quality of the books, but I couldn't be more happy that I did.
Bought this collection at a gigantic discount and it arrived quickly. The external quality of the books is excellent (i.e., binding, aesthetics) and they look great on the bookshelf. The print is, as most other reviewers have already noted, the primary issue that unfortunately knocks the overall "product quality" down several notches. The main problem with the print is the inconsistency - I have noticed areas where it gets smaller and larger, areas where it is very dark and areas where it is so light that the words appear to be missing. But this is the only real complaint I have about these books. Despite this, the majority of the text is still readable - I've personally read 2 sermons so far in different volumes and they were so so good!
All in all, aside from the weird print defects and inconsistencies, this collection of Spurgeon's sermons is amazing. And quite frankly, I don't believe you could get a better deal for such quality of work (referring to Spurgeon here) for such a low price and have it still look fantastic. I'm satisfied with these volumes. Two of my close friends are as well.
I don't think I can exaggerate the greatness of this product. You know it's great when you finish the last volume with the sinking feeling that all good things come to an end, including your journey through these sermons. Lucky for me, Spurgeon left 60+ volumes that I need to tackle next. I've fallen in love with it for the quality and value of thought in the sermons. It has to be the best bang for the buck out of any purchase I've made. The Prince of Preachers has done most of the hard work by packing every page with condensed wisdom, and the publishers did a wonderful job of giving it a quality package. EXCELLENT BUY!
A great bargain at the reduced price. Wonderful reading. Great devotionally. Only problem is with quality of print; it is photocopied (?) and is thus uneven, but still clearly readable. Small price to pay for such content and such a bargain.
