Publishers Description Shepherd's Notes- Christian Classics Series is designed to give readers a quick, step by step overview of some of the enduring treasures of the Christian faith. They are designed to be used along side the classic itself- either in individual study or in a study group. The faithful of all generations have found spiritual nourishment in the Scriptures and in the works of Christians of earlier generations. Martin Luther and John Calvin would not have become who they were apart from their reading Augustine. God used the writings of Martin Luther to move John Wesley from a religion of dead works to an experience at Aldersgate in which his "heart was strangely warmed." Shepherd's Notes will give pastors, laypersons, and students access to some of the treasures of Christian faith.

Thoughts to Ponder Aug 10, 2007
This book was reccommended by a friend who is a pastor. It was insightful, and thought provoking! All in Church leadership can benefit by reading this book.
Indespensible Advice Aug 16, 2006
Three things that I really appreciate about this book, are its candor, practicality, and humor. One very rarely finds a 19th century man who could communicate truths like these in such a way. In Lectures to My Students, Spurgeon gives indespensible advice to those going into the ministry about how to be an effective preacher. This book is a must have for those called to preach the Gospel and it is a fun read as well. God bless you.
A Gem May 23, 2006
This is a book that every Christian should read. Rev. Spurgeon made an impact in God-forsaken England by the Grace of Christ. It's interesting to see how Christ worked in this preacher's life. Of course, he is a sinner just like you and me, although justified by the blood of Christ. His sermons are important because they are a testimony to how Christ works to build up His Church. Of course, our focus should be on Christ and Christa only as our Supreme Leader and Commander in Chief in our spiritual battle.
Lecture Me Nov 25, 2005
"Affectation of intellectual superiority and love of rhetorical splendour have prevented many from setting forth gospel truth in the easiest imaginable manner, namely, by analogies drawn from common events. Because they could not condescened to men of low estate hey have refrained from repeating incidents which would have accurately explained their meaning. Fearing to be thought vulgar, they have lost goldne opportunities. As well might David have refused to sling one of the smooth stones at Goliath's brow because he found it in a common brook."
Thus, we catch a glimpse of the practical wisdom, which so easily dripped from the pen of Charles Spurgeon, in the preceding quote. It is but a small portion of the witty, yet solid, insights he gives in his work Lectures to My Students. Although this book is intended for those would be pastors and elders who are picking up the mantle of God's preachers, there are great principles of biblical and practical truth which can be applied to any Christian's life. On that basis alone I approvingly recommend this read to all.
Spurgeon's mastery and command of the English language did not keep him from "setting forth gospel turth in the easiest imaginable manner". In fact, with such an ability, he was one of the most avid communicators of his day, and even to this time. I've heard it said before that had Spurgeon's voluminous writings been "unrelgious" in nature, they would've been indeed used to exemplify the best of English language. Spurgeon has been affectionately called the Prince of Preachers, and rightly so, for his eloquence of speech was music to the ears of both the common man and well-to-do.
In Lectures to My Students, Spurgeon's subject matter ranges anywhere from Vocal demonstration and care to "The Minister's Self-Watch". It would behoove anyone who "desires the office of an Elder" to get a copy of Spurgeon's Lectures and make use of the matter found therein. Spurgeon was indeed a uniquely used individual of God. When it comes to preaching, he was definitely exceptional, not typical. Would it be that God would grant us more Preachers such as he!
A wonderful teaching aid Sep 19, 2005
This is one of the most helpful books for teaching that I have found. Spurgeon is known as "Prince of Preachers" and he really is a great teacher. I an certanly thankful He left some of his work for us to use. His ancedotes are great.
