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.
Wrapped in custom marbled paper and leather like Spurgeon's original notebook, this collector's edition has gilded edges and contains dozens of photographs not found in the standard edition.
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.

"Christian Georges edition of The Lost Sermons of C. H. Spurgeon is not only a remarkable gift to admirers of Spurgeon, but it also provides an illuminating view into nineteenth-century evangelical thought. I recommend it highly."
Thomas S. Kidd, distinguished professor of history, Baylor University
"This series represents a coming together of the perennial pastoral interest in Spurgeon with the renewed scholarly attention to the Prince of Preachersand I trust Spurgeon would have it no other way. I pray these volumes will be a boon to historians and a blessing to the church for generations to come."

"There is gold here, and Im grateful for Christians work in digging it up and exposing it to view. Reflect upon the young Spurgeons sermons because they powerfully and beautifully show us the person and work of Jesus Christ."

This book is a call for celebration for any Spurgeon lovers or any who appreciate great preaching in general. If you are like me, you already read often from the pool of sermons available in either the New Park Street Pulpit or the Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit sermon sets. Perhaps you would agree with me as well in saying that Spurgeon is one of the greatest preachers who ever lived. This gorgeous volume is the first in what will be an indispensable set.
Spurgeon himself meant to publish these sermons from his earliest ministry, but it never worked out. His notes have languished in storage for these many years. Now Christian T. George has rescued the sermons and B & H Publishing has blessed us all by committing to print them in quality, beautiful editions. What will be obvious the minute you pick up these volumes is that both Mr. George and the publishers have treated the sermons as a labor of love.
Once you open this beautiful volume you will find a treasure trove. You will read a history of how the project came together, an interesting timeline that puts Spurgeon in historical context, and introduction, two interesting essays on Spurgeon, and an essay about the sermons themselves. Mr. George then describes his sources and methods and even gives a sermon analysis that reviews the number of words in his sermon notes and other interesting facts. I must confess that I found every page of the introductory material to be interesting reading. Dont miss the incredible amount of information in the footnotes as well.
Then theres the sermons. Many of them are only an outline, but Mr. George has put such incredible research of interesting tidbits both historical and personal that are loads of fun for Spurgeon fans. Who wouldve thought that Spurgeons first outline mostly came from John Gill! As I read the sermon outlines, I could tell that these were, perhaps, before Spurgeon completely hit his stride, but they still showed the homiletic genius that he was. It also demonstrated how Spurgeon can teach us all to find great sermons in unlikely texts.
This Collectors Edition contains the same content as the regular volume as you will see when comparing each Table of Contents, but is still worthwhile to check out. I suspect many Spurgeon fans will prefer it. ( I do!) It has the look and feel of those heirloom volumes that existed in Spurgeons day and have lasted until ours. It comes in a slipcover box and is a cloth over boards volume with leather spine binding. In addition, theres genuine gold foil on the spine as well as gilded page edges. Im a book lover and own many, but this collectors edition is easily the best Ive seen published these days. Dont miss the incredible pictures either that have been added in unnumbered pages at this end of this bookthey arent found in the other edition.
I look forward to getting each volume as they come out and cant wait to have the set completed. If you are a book lover, this is the release of the year. I pray this series has great success and mark me down as its first admirer.
