Biography

 C. H. Spurgeon
Source: Wikipedia
The descendant of several generations of Independent ministers, he was born at Kelvedon, Essex, and became a Baptist in 1850. In the same year he preached his first sermon, and in 1852 he was appointed paster of the Baptist congregation at Waterbeach. In 1854 he went to Southwark, where his sermons drew such crowds that a new church, the Metropolitan Tabernacle in Newington Causeway, had to be built for him. Apart from his preaching activites he founded a pastors’ college, an orphanage, and a colportage association for the propagation of uplifting literature. Spurgeon was a strong Calvinist. He had a controversy in 1864 with the Evangelical party of the Church of England for remaining in a Church that taught Baptismal Regeneration, and also estranged considerable sections of his own community by rigid opposition to the more liberal methods of Biblical exegesis. These differences led to a rupture with the Baptist Union in 1887. He owed his fame as a preacher to his great oratorical gifts, humour, and shrewd common sense, which showed itself especially in his treatment of contemporary problems. Among his works are The Saint and his Saviour (1857), Commenting and Commentaries (1876) and numerous volumes of sermons (translated into many languages).

"It is not the object of this book to ask anything of you, but to tell you that salvation is ALL OF GRACE, which means, free, gratis, for nothing." Charles Spurgeon is a cornerstone of the Christian religion. A preacher and teacher, his sermons have spread all over the world and his many printed works have been treasured classic for decades. All of Grace is a simple and eloquent presentation of basic salvation through grace alone. Spurgeon wants readers only to consume his work and ponder it, he asks nothing in return because he believes in the power of God to bring unbelievers to Him. As one reviewer puts it well: "[Spurgeon] brings the gospel to his readers with pointed illustrations, well-placed anecdotes, irrefutable arguments, heart-felt pleas, and (above all else) the plainly-spoken and rightly-applied word of God." This short and easy read is both a perfect introduction to salvation and an assurance of it for unbelievers and the saved alike. In the last line, Spurgeon beseeches readers to accept salvation now and "Meet me in heaven."

This volume contains Spurgeon’s commentary on various biblical commentaries, designed to provide a catalogue of resources for students and pastors. Spurgeon also includes two lectures he gave to his students at the Pastor’s College (now Spurgeon’s College) which discuss the nature and purpose of commentaries in general. Because such surveys of biblical commentaries are so rare, Spurgeon’s work remains useful and relevant, especially for those who trust him as a spiritual guide and interpreter of Scripture.

Charles Spurgeon believes that we all have personal banks of faith. In his book, Faith’s Checkbook, Spurgeon urges readers to view each daily Bible reading as a “check” from God to us. Believers can cash these spiritual “checks” to receive the gifts and promises that God has given. In this delightfully creative daily devotional, readers are given fresh hope every day that God is looking out for them and working for their good. There is no better way to start a morning than with an uplifting promise from God himself.

Organized by month, this devotional has a morning and evening meditation for every day of the year. Although these devotions are short in length, they are filled with spiritual goodness. In just a few sentences, Spurgeon is able to convey the wisdom of Scripture with eloquence and purpose. These daily messages provide Christians with the spiritual energy they need to begin and end each day. Spurgeon weaves a verse of Scripture into each devotion, helping readers draw deeper meaning out of the selected passages. This powerful devotional provides Christians with the spiritual nourishment required to strengthen their relationships with God. Readers will find themselves inspired by Morning and Evening: Daily Readings.

This collection contains twelve of Spurgeon's most famous sermons from the Book of Proverbs. The sermons cover such topics as God's omniscience, what causes and how to cure a wounded spirit, God's loving forgiveness, pride and humility, and how to be a godly friend. As with all of Spurgeon's speech and writing, these sermons possess the same charisma and friendliness. The sermons can uplift and enlighten, and reading them will leave readers with but one regret: that they could not hear the magnetic Spurgeon give them in person.

During his lifetime, Charles Spurgeon delivered over 3,000 sermons. These sermons fit into 63 printed volumes; volumes 13-40 cover Spurgeon’s preaching career from 1867- 1894. Because Spurgeon excelled as a public speaker, these printed words definitely lack much of the thrill of hearing them live. Even so, the sermons’ content has not only shaped the course of Christian history, but it has provided people insight, comfort, and healthy challenges. Spurgeon’s work remains especially influential among evangelical Christians.

C.H. Spurgeon was a British Baptist pastor whose work remains meaningful to Christians of all denominations. The father of the modern "mega-church," Spurgeon is most famous for his pastorship at London's Metropolitan Tabernacle, where he regularly preached to huge crowds. In his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to over 10,000,000 people and published over 55 books, sermons, and meditations which have been translated into 34 languages. Till He Come is a collection of addresses centered on the Lord's Supper. Some were preached to the congregation at Metropolitan, while others were spoken to small groups of Christians Spurgeon hosted on Sundays to celebrate communion. The collection addresses a diverse range of scriptures, but all stick to the common theme of Jesus' symbolic last meal. It will prove helpful to anyone looking for further insight on this interdenominational practice and will encourage believers to "do this in remembrance of me."
