Charles Spurgeon, widely hailed as the “Prince of Preachers,” is well known for his powerful preaching, gifted mind, and compelling personality. Over the course of nearly four decades at London’s famous New Park Street Chapel and Metropolitan Tabernacle, Spurgeon preached and penned words that continue to resonate with God’s people today.
Organized around the main beliefs that undergirded his ministry—the centrality of Christ, the importance of the new birth, the indwelling of the Spirit, and the necessity of the Bible—this introduction to Spurgeon’s life and thought will challenge readers to live their lives for the glory of God.

SDG4 Stars Out Of 5One Question: Why?February 15, 2018SDGQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2There 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.

CowboyTacos5 Stars Out Of 5Spurgeon on the Christian LifeJanuary 25, 2018CowboyTacosQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Charles 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.
