A Ten Star Book on the Life of Spurgeon Jun 23, 2004
Lewis Drummond has given the Church of God a great book with this massive, 800+ page book on the life of one of the English language's greatest pastors, Charles Spurgeon. The book reads very quickly and you will find yourself getting lost in the life of Spurgeon from his early childhood to his glorious days in ministry to the very dark days of the end of his life. You will read the good and the bad of Spurgeon for he was just a sinner redeemed by God's grace and you will also find a man passionate for the truth of God's inerrant Word.
In short, you will be challenged to pray that God would raise up more Spurgeons not only for the United States but for Great Britain and all the world. How we need godly men to once again proclaim God's truth in an age of compromise and spiritual decay.
This a must for every preacher to read. Feb 2, 1999
This book captivates you. Spureon stood out as a preacher and pastor far above most who ever pastored. Dr.Dummand has given a vivid description of the many faceted sides of the great preacher. When I finished the book I felt like it should be studied rather than just read. You will love the many tidbits of fascinating information about the man and his ministry. Mr. Spurgeon was involved in controversary quite often. The author tells how and why. Spurgeon took a strong stand on the fundamentals of the faith when many others were not as open. There are many paralells to prominent pastors of today. It will especially encourage and strengethen younger pastors. As I read the book two thing struck me. How I wish I had read this 50 years ago. Then how we need more his tribe today. Every Christian would be blessed and profited by this book.
