Learn the Gospel from the Greatest Evangelist of Victorian Times!
October 31, 2015
Preachers and students of the Gospel will come to love reading C.H. Spurgeon's sermons. They are still as relevant today as they were then. I have read them as my devotional and as part of my serious Bible Study preparation for my adult Sunday School classes. He had a great heart and proper passion in getting out the message of salvation as no one else of his time was able.
Would I recommend these volumes? The answer comes through loud and clear as I sent a set to my own pastor.
I am thoroughly pleased with the Spurgeon 5 volume set. And just as please with the commitment of good service that I have enjoyed from you in past purchases. Looking forward to purchasing more resources of Spurgeon in the future.
From a recent introduction to Spurgeon's thoughts regarding Calvinism and Evangelism, and how the two are complementary rather than at odds with one another, I have been compelled to learn more on the thoughts of Spurgeon. These books contain a fair sampling of his sermons, from which we can discern those thoughts, but much as when reading the Bible, you must read through it before you can really begin to assemble a perspective on the thoughts of this most famous of preachers.
The order of the sermons presented has to do with the period when they were preached rather than an organization based upon scriptural references or subject matter. An index of both would prove very helpful for those who might be seeking out Spurgeon on specific subjects. Such is not included within these books.
These books appear to be photo reproduced from original old-style type-set printing. And the original books from which the pages were copied run the gamut from fairly readable to down right difficult - due to inadequate ink or worn type faces on some pages. It's not that they are unreadable, but they may challenge your wheel of fortune skills - filling in the blank letters that inevitable appear from time to time.
