The collection of Spurgeon's sermons were first of all a great deal. The price unbelievable for such rich writing. Furthemore, the classic style green binding with embossed gold gives the volumes a quality antique appearance. Each volume fits nicely in my hands for reading without being clumsy. However, the greatest benefit of owning these sermons is the spiritual insights found within the pages of each sermon. Every time I read another sermon, I am amazed at how much I learn.
For the price, it can't be beat. Legibility is good to adequate. It might be valuable to note that this orginally ten volume set, now bound in five, is heavily weighted toward early Spurgeon. This series was first published in the U.S, beginning in 1857, up through 1883. However, the first sermon of the first volume dates from 1856 and the final sermon in the last volume dates from 1876. Nothing wrong with this at all. His early work has great fire and power. (See for example the Revival Year Sermons 1859.) But those wishing a little more from his more mature preaching ministry might find another resource somewhat more helpful. Spurgeon died in 1892 and continued preaching at the Metropolitan Tabernacle up through most of 1891.
