About the Author

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) was England's best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1854, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 20, became pastor of London's famed New Park Street Church (formerly pastored by the famous Baptist theologian John Gill). The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey Music Hall. In these venues Spurgeon frequently preached to audiences numbering more than 10,000—all in the days before electronic amplification. In 1861 the congregation moved permanently to the newly constructed Metropolitan Tabernacle. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
In Charles Spurgeon's day, most people understood their connection to the soil. Maybe there weren't many farmers in his congregation in London, but the language of plowing, sowing, cultivating, and harvesting was still familiar. People knew that these things had to be done for food to be on the table. More importantly, they understood that regardless of how skillful the farmer, there would never be a crop without God's blessing.

A good preacher teaches spiritual truth using everyday life illustrations. What better than nature and farming? "Some of the mightiest of prophets and preachers came from the plough, and surely that must be a good college which has furnished such able divines. As all the world is fed by the produce of the farm, so may all men's minds find food in meditating upon the ways of God in nature and providence, as seen by the husbandman."

In using agricultural metaphors to teach, Spurgeon imitates Jesus. Maybe that's why he was called the "Prince of Preachers."

Farm Sermons is a collection of 19 of Spurgeon's agriculture related sermons. Examples are "The Sluggard's Farm" (Proverbs 24:30-32), "Ploughing the Rock" (Amos 6:12), and my favorite, "What the Farm Labourers Can Do and What They Cannot Do" (Mark 4:26-29).

These are typical Spurgeon sermons: deep in theology and rich in imagery. If you want something light and easy, you won't find it in this book. And unlike some collections of Spurgeon's sermons, Farm Sermons has not been "updated for the modern reader." But if you like the language of the Puritans, the theology of the Bible, and a teaching method similar to the Lord's, you'll love this book.

If you are not familiar with the sermons of C H Spurgeon, then this is a good book to start with. Spurgeon has the gift of using the ordinary things of life to help explain God's Word. Sit back and enjoy God's Word as depicted on an English farm. Go from there to Spurgeon's lectures titled "Sermons on Candles". Spurgeon with a prolific writer having produce over 3000 sermons in his life time. Enjoy!
