What would it have been like to sit in Spurgeon's classes?
I hope this book gives a sense of what a student would hear Spurgeon say about preaching if Spurgeon were to speak with them in the hall, from the pulpit, or on a walk down the streets of London.
Thus, the purpose of this book is to enable preachers to "apprentice" with Spurgeon for a season in order to learn from him about preaching. It is hoped that such an internship will prove valuable for contributing to preachers as they mine resources for gospel relevance and power in the twenty-first century.
But how could Spurgeon help the twenty-first century preacher?
The preacher today in the West will recognize some profound similarities with Spurgeon and his times. It is true that postmodernism and Enlightenment Rationalism are very different philosophies. But their results are similar in that they promote wide spread scepticism and doubt regarding the authority of the Bible. The debates about the use of art and sermon length at the turn of the twenty-first century are no different in substance than those found in England at the turn of the twentieth. The effect of attention span and the need for story to accompany logic are not new topics of discussion for preachers. In addition, pressures that reduce time for sermon preparation and engender the temptation for shallow or borrowed sermons are nothing essentially new.
Kerry Collins5 Stars Out Of 5May 26, 2009Kerry CollinsA great book and resource center for the motivation of the preachers and pastors that find themselves in a struggle for a clear perspective. This book lays out how Spurgeon faced the hard issues head on, and kept going on even in the face of much of what is just the day to day life of a minister. His day sounds close to ours in so many ways. I am about 1/2 way through it now and every page is speaking to me in a clear way.I would suggest all Ministers young and old get a copy, as well as much of the Laity would be helped by its content.
