Charles Haddon Spurgeon
1834 - 1892
Spurgeon is known as the "Prince of Preachers".
Usually I would give you a short bio here but there
are full length biographies of Spurgeon available on
the net. Click here to read a good one,
Charles Haddon Spurgeon - A Biography by W. Y.
Fullerton, hosted at the Spurgeon Archive. Instead,
I'd like to offer you an account of his conversion in
his own words. Click here to read that. Spurgeon was a
prolific preacher and his sermons were recorded,
published and continued to be published long after
his death. There are many books available and many of
his sermons can be found on the Internet. It was hard
to choose from so many good selections - which books
to recommend and what sites to offer links to. I
chose six of my favorite Spurgeon volumes and linked
to what I believe are the best of the Spurgeon sites.
I hope you will enjoy them.

Jesus Christ: The History,
Ceremony and Prophecy As Told In The Old
Testament. Following His resurrection, on
the road to Emmaus, Jesus explained to two of His
disciples how Moses and the Prophets (aka The Old
Testament) clearly presented "things concerning
himself". In that vein, Spurgeon presents 60 studies
on the historical, ceremonial and prophetic aspects
of those teachings about and word pictures (types) of
Christ found in the Old Testament.

The Power Of Prayer In A
Believer's Life by C. H. Spurgeon; Robert
Hall (Editor). Long before the days of "user-friendly
mega churches" (ugh!), Spurgeon was packing them in
by the thousands. His secret? The power of prayer! Do
you have it? Why not exercise it?
I would be remiss if I didn't include two of my favs:
These are both collections of sermons on many of the
men and women who populate the pages of the Bible.
Spurgeon studies their characters, pointing out key
principles for living that extend even to our
generation. Enjoyable reading!
