Author(s): Charles H. Spurgeon
The classic and popular sermons of Spurgeon, now repackaged for a modern audience.
Draw closer to the throne of grace with these classic sermons from the “Prince of Preachers.” Working from the simplest of texts, Spurgeon mines spiritual riches from the precious prayers of Christ. Each address is delivered not in the flowery speech popular in nineteenth-century England, but in plain-spoken Anglo-Saxon that still nourishes—and convicts—modern readers. Combining a keen intellect, a passion for Scripture, and a zeal to make Christ known, Sermons on the Prayers of Christ is timeless.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834–1892) was Victorian England’s most gifted pastor. Ordained at age twenty, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon opened his career of spectacularly effective preaching at London’s New Park Street Chapel. Even in his own time, Spurgeon’s printed sermons—there were nearly 3,600 of them— were prized by fellow preachers for their ideal homiletic models, and by ordinary believers for their deeply devotional encouragement to follow Christ.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834–1892) served for 30 years at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. It is estimated that during his lifetime he spoke to 10 million people, and he became known as the “Prince of Preachers.” His works fill over 60 volumes; and more than a century after his death, his sermons and devotional texts continue to challenge and touch Christians and non-Christians alike with their biblical grounding, eloquent text, and simple encouragement. Among his published books are Lectures to My Students (Hendrickson); The Treasury of David (Hendrickson), a devotional commentary on the Psalms; All of Grace, the first Christian pocket-paperback published in the United States; numerous volumes of topical sermon collections; and the best-selling Morning and Evening.
