In 1857, Charles Spurgeon—the most popular preacher in the Victorian world—promised his readers that he would publish his earliest sermons. While these sermons have been lost to history for almost 160 years, The Lost Sermons of C.H. Spurgeon forwards a collection of these rediscovered sermons so they can finally be read, studied, and enjoyed by the millions around the world who admire Spurgeon's spiritual insights and literary grace.

This inaugural volume, The Lost Sermons of C. H. Spurgeon, Volume I: His Earliest Outlines and Sermons between 1851 and 1854 contains an introduction to what will be a multi-volume series, an overview of Spurgeon's life and times, seventy-eight sermons he preached itinerantly and as pastor of Waterbeach Chapel, and an analysis of these sermons by editor and Spurgeon scholar Christian T. George.

About the Series

This multi-volume set includes full-color facsimiles of Spurgeon's original handwriting, transcriptions of his outlines and sermons, biographical introductions, and editorial commentary that further illuminate Spurgeon's work. Written for scholars, pastors, and students alike, The Lost Sermons of C. H. Spurgeon will add approximately 10 percent more material to Spurgeon's body of literature and will constitute the first critical edition of any of Spurgeon's works.
