Product Description

What would it have been like to sit in Spurgeon's classes? 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, this book enables preachers to "apprentace" with Spurgeon for a season in order to learn about preaching. Such an internship will help you mine resources for gospel relevance and power in the twenty-first century. Such debates as the use of art, sermon length, the attention span of the audience, are just some of the topics you'll hear the Prince of Preachers expound as only he can.

Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

'The author, through well chosen quotations from Spurgeon's autobiography, his lectures and his sermons, enables us to understand the secret of Spurgeon's powerful impact for the kingdom of God, not only in the South East London but arouond the World... This book is higly recommended for everyone who has been called to preach. It will also prove helpful for Christians who prayerfully suppport the work of their minister.'
'In this work Spurgeon lives again not merely as a preacher but as a teacher of preachers for his generation and ours. Eswine honestly explores the strengths and weakness, theology and practice, personality and passions of Spurgeon to guide us on a path toward sound, gracious, and Spirit-empowered preaching for our time.'
'Zack Eswine has blessed all who care about preaching by giving us something we need--a down-to-earth theology of preaching made vivid by the exceptional life, ministry, and thought of Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Spurgeon's quest to let the Bible itself shape his preaching and the Holy Spirit give it power supplies a timely paradigm for those of us who preach today. Eswine's well- documented treatment of the subject distills Spurgeon's intentional practice in a way that promises to challenge, convict, instruct, but especially to encourage us to keep preaching in the confident expectation that God will speak when we preach in ways that reflect how he has spoken to us.'
"As hard as it may be for 21st century preachers to believe, Charles Spurgeon dealt with many of the same challenges today's preacher's face. In Kindled Fire, Zack Eswine allows us to sit at the feet of this powerful pulpiteer and gain insights from the life and ministry of one of the greatest preachers in the history of the church. Throughout the pages of this fascinating book, the reader feels drawn into Spurgeon's presence and receives valuable counsel as if from the great preacher's own lips. This is a volume that is both enjoyable and rewarding."
"A masterful book by a preacher, about a preacher, and for preachers—and all those who love a good sermon. Zack Eswine, professor of homiletics at Covenant Theological Seminary, explores the life and ministry of Charles Haddon Spurgeon and presents timeless truths about the call to ministry, theology for preaching, style and content, the preacher's power and struggles. Thoughtful questions for learning and discussion follow each of the thirteen chapters."

    A 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.
