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.
