    Spurgeon on the Christian Life

    Quality: 5

    Meets Expectations: 5
    Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1893) was a Reformed Baptist pastor and author. This book is both a biography of Spurgeon and an explanation of his theology. The book does a good job of being theological without being hard to understand. Most of the book is quotes from Spurgeons sermons and other writings grouped into sections on his main beliefs. My only problem with this book is the section on Calvinism that tries to prove its point by basically ridiculing Arminianism with terrible arguments. But I guess I shouldve expected when I chose to read a book about a Calvinists theology. Overall it was a good book and explains how all theology should revolve around Christ.

    One Question: Why?

    There is much we can learn from the theologians of the past. Spurgeon was an excellent example of a man who was motivated and directed by the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, whether one agrees with his theology or not, investing time learning from his beneficial.

    In this particular book, author Michael Reeves has done a tremendous job at capturing the passion that is Charles Spurgeon. Utilizing Spurgeon's very own words, the author allows Spurgeon to minister to the readers directly by utilizing his own writings to speak.

    However, I find myself left asking one question: why?There are literally millions of books being published every year that compete for our attention, so why is this one worthy of our attention? If the goal is to introduce readers to a theology of the Christian life, why not read Scripture? If the goal is to let Spurgeon speak and minister to the readers, as the author intends to do here, why not read Spurgeon directly? Even if the goal is to combine the two by learning theology of the Christian life from those who have gone before us, again I ask, Why not consult their writings directly?

    There is no doubt that this book is tremendously written. I enjoyed reading it. But I would urge readers to consult their Bible first, and then consult the readings of the men directly.

    Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purposes of review. However, my review was not influenced in any way by the author, publisher, or any other person associated with this book and is the result of my own reading of it.
