Selected from Spurgeon's lifetime of work of over 3,500 sermons, this volume features fifteen sermons on women of the Old Testament--the pious, the faithful, the notorious, the broken. Here you will discover that women such as Esther, Hagar, Rahab, and Hannah are much like you in their desire for faith, their relationship struggles, their daily pressures and doubts, and their growing trust in a loving God.
Gently updated for the modern reader, Spurgeon's words are as rich and nourishing as they were more than a century ago. So let him introduce you to the complex, passionate, and very real women of the Bible--as you've never known them before.
CHARLES HADDON SPURGEON (1834-1892) was one of England's best-known preachers in the second half of the nineteenth century. Ordained at 20, just four years after his conversion, he spent most of his career preaching in London's 6000-seat Metropolitan Tabernacle. The founder of a college that trained over nine hundred pastors during his lifetime, he also opened orphanages for underprivileged boys and girls, providing education to each one. He stands in the very first rank of preachers. No one since has been as widely read devotionally or so frequently mined by ministers.
