Spurgeon: A New Biography
While this book contains material of interest, it is jumbled and cold. The author was unable to personalize the life of a great Christian and he failed, not because of Spurgeon's life, but because of an impersonal, mechanical style that better fits a high school student writing about a robot. I am a quarter through and will struggle to the end, but only to meet an assignment.

As I read this book, I felt I was there with Spurgeon. The author wrote it such a fashion that it really spoke to me.
I was overwhelmed with what Spurgeon accomplished in his lifetime. Fantastic! So much so that I choose to acquire his writings.

This book is the one volume version of the two volume set originally published by Arnold Dallimore. This book is highly readable and is also highly pro-Spurgeon. That becomes highly clear in the sections that cover John Clifford and the Downgrade Controversy with the British Baptist Union. The book is also well researched and mentions facets of Spurgeon's life which many people may not know (his infant baptism by his Grandfather) and covers a lot of areas that many already do know. The book is divided into four sections complete with an introduction and epilogue that give a brief glimpse of life before Spurgeon in England and the history of the Metropolitan tabernacle after his death. I highly recommend this book for anybody who is a Spurgeon fanatic.
