Holy Spirit Power

Having been given this book by a good friend, it allowed me to continue my pursuit of books and writings that speak of walking with God.  There is hardly a better place to go than to Mr. Spurgeon when thinking of walking with God, and the subject of the Holy Spirit is vital to the […]

John Ploughman’s Talk

C.H.  Spurgeon had an amazing ability to speak or write to a wide variety of audiences.  Among the many things that he wrote, this little book became one of the most popular among laymen.  Here Spurgeon assumes the name John Bloughman and writes to the common man about common things.  “Ploughman” immediately drew pictures of […]

Spurgeon’s Prayers

 C.H. Spurgeon was probably the most quoted preacher of the last two hundred years.  It is no wonder that many of his very prayers, prayed during the services of Metropolitan Tabernacle in London (1854-1892) would be transcribed and printed as well.  And I must admit, after reading twenty six pulpit prayers recorded in this book, […]

Spurgeon’s Autobiography, Vol IV

Having finished the fourth and final volume of this classic autobiography of the great English preacher, I felt as though I had watched Spurgeon grow up, serve God greatly in his generation, and go on to his reward at the early age of 58.  This last volume (written mostly by family and associates) covers much […]

The Second Coming of Christ

Moody books put no author on this book other than the seven people who wrote the seven chapters.  They are:  Harriet Beecher Stowe, D.L. Moody, J.C. Ryle, George Müller, D.W. Whittle, George C. Needham, and Charles H. Spurgeon.  An invitation of sorts is given anonymously  at the end.  I bought this book while “rescuing a […]

Spurgeon’s Autobiography, Vol III

I have been working my way through this large set.  It was originally done in London by Passmore and Alabaster in 1899.  It was compiled posthumously by Spurgeon’s wife and his private secretary, although Spurgeon personally wrote most of it during his lifetime.  Today you can buy it through Pilgrim Publications in Pasadena, TX.  It […]

C.H. Spurgeon’s Autobiography, Vol 2

These few short years that began Spurgeon’s long London ministry (1854-1892) were nothing short of amazing.  Spurgeon came to London as a stranger to the large city, looking much like a “country bumpkin” even to Susanna who would soon become his bride.  Spurgeon and the people, however, quickly adapted to one another.  Soon the New […]

C.H. Spurgeon’s Autobiography, Vol. I

By his wife,and his private secretary This is a reprint of the original volumes (Passmore and Alabaster, London, 1897) by Pilgrim Publications in 1992.  It is the only unabridged edition of the original now printed.  It was originally done in four separate volumes but this set is four volumes printed in two large books.  Most […]

Morning and Evening

My choice for this year’s day-by-day reading.  Great book!  “The Scriptures are the swaddling bands of the Holy Child Jesus; unroll them and you find your Saviour.  The quintessence of the Word of God is Christ.  This volume contains Jesus Christ’s letters to us, perfumed by His love.  These pages are the garments of our […]

The Down-Grade Controversy

This is a relatively small booklet which is a collection of the monthly articles Spurgeon wrote in The Sword and Trowel during this controversy including one related sermon.  The Baptist Union was being infiltrated by German Rationalistic thinking especially in its denial of the authority of Scripture.  Spurgeon was among the first to recognize the […]
