Draw closer to the throne of grace with these classic sermons from the "Prince of Preachers." Each address is delivered not in the flowery speech popular in nineteenth-century England, but in plain-spoken Anglo-Saxon that still nourishes--and convicts--modern readers. Combining a keen intellect, a passion for Scripture, and a zeal to make Christ known, these sermons are as timeless as their topics.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was Victorian England's most gifted pastor. Ordained at age twenty, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon opened his career of spectacularly effective preaching at London's New Park Street Chapel. Even in his own time, Spurgeon's printed sermons--there were nearly 3,600 of them--were prized by fellow preachers for their ideal homiletic models, and by ordinary believers for their deeply devotional encouragement to follow Christ.
