Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

One contemporary scholar and authority on Spurgeon says of this work: 'Next to Mr. Spurgeon's great literary work, The Treasury of David, we consider (these) Lectures to My Students his greatest single contribution to the Christian world. There is more practical wisdom, common sense and sage advice packed within these pages than with any other book of similar size, or content.' This complete and unabridged edition of Spurgeon's great work will make it possible for today's generation to appreciate Spurgeon's combination of discerning wit and refreshingly practical advice. Included in the twenty-eight chapters of this classic volume are lectures such as: - The Call to Ministry - The Preacher's Private Prayer - On the Choice of a Text - On the Voice - The Holy Spirit in Connection with Our Ministry - The Blind Eye and the Deaf Ear - On Conversion as Our Aim - Illustrations in Preaching As were all of Spurgeon's messages to his people, each of these lectures is Scripture-saturated and Christ-honoring. They move swiftly and are fascinating in their content and sage counsel.

About the Author

Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) was a British Baptist preacher who remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is still known as the "Prince of Preachers." He preached his first sermon, from 1 Peter 2:7, in 1851 at 16 and became pastor of the Church in Waterbeach in 1852. He published more than 1,900 different sermons and preached to around 10,000,000 people during his lifetime. In addition, Spurgeon was a prolific author of many types of works including an autobiography, a commentary, books on prayer, a devotional, a magazine, poetry, hymnist and more. Many sermons were transcribed as he spoke and were later translated into many languages. Arguably, no other author, Christian or otherwise, has more material in print than C.H. Spurgeon.

...And believe me I would probably know. I've been reading as many books on preaching as I possibly can. I've discovered that most books on preaching today focus on structure and form. Their like my friend Gus says, "Car manuals for preaching." Structure and form have their place, but I think that it is over emphasized today. In this book Spurgeon remains extremely practical, yet raises the plane for the standared of both a good sermon and a good preacher. In this book he is in exceptionally rare form, he differs from most of his sermons. He is still just as Christ-centered and elequent but is more casual than in his sermons. After I read this book I felt as if I had aqired a new friend. I also felt as if I was part the Pastor's colledge. I could almost raise my hand and ask a question. I highly recomend this book to pastors and laymen alike with no regret.

I really enjoyed this book and recommend it for anyone in the ministry or entering the ministry. There are countless gems of insight and anecdotes by Spurgeon of his own experience, fellow ministers, and great men of God in days gone by. Each section is a precise snapshot of how old school, revival, God-entranced, Word-centered, Spirit-empowered ministry should be. There is great inspiration to be found here that challenges you to go deeper in your personal devotion in order to be more fruitful publicly. But what really amazed me was the practical advice that was given in every area of ministry from private to public prayer to sermon writing and delivery. Very insightful; and I am thankful to have gleaned these truths from the prince of preachers. The first 6 chapters are particularly captivating as they describe the essence of the minister and what his character and he in himself should be. Also worthy of special note is the chapter near the end on spiritual depression of the pastor/preacher; it is quite valuable.

This is one of my top 5 books. All of Spurgeon's works are worth the effort and resources to secure (such as his autobiography, commentary on Psalms called Treasury of David, salvific work titled All of Grace, and monumental 63 volume sermon set :), but that is not always feasible. If you were to have only one book by Spurgeon, I would say this should be it.

As has been said in the other more negative reviews: the presentation is not that great (this is the bibliobazar edition). The book itself looks very clean and sharp; it's a good size too, which I appreciate (just has a good hold and feel in your hands as you read). BUT, the type size is extremely small and the font is just okay.

This book is a classic, and should be a part of every Christian's library. What an encouragement and inspiration. This book has not lost any of its touch, even though the messages C.H. Spurgeon gave in it are over a hundred years old. Rather, he reveals why today's modern spiritualism is no match to the true power of God, encouraging us to WALK YE IN THE OLD WAYS and to GO BY THE OLD. PATHS.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was born in 1834 and was converted at the age of 16. By the age of 17, he was already adept enough in the Word of God that he was called to shepherd one of the local churches. During his lifetime, he published over 1900 different sermons. Each was original and thought-provoking. Those who have read his sermons know that each message was filled with the Word of God and sought to bring honor and glory to Christ alone. The teaching done by Spurgeon in these 28 lectures is a skill that has almost completely vanished from among pastor-teachers today. This 443 page book reflects just one reason why he was called, "The Prince Of Preachers" and "A Master Pulpiteer." Spurgeon's teachings and messages will go on in Christendom as being revelant to any age in any decade. The ministerial student will do well to study these lectures and seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit in applying them to their ministry. The experienced minister should also take the time out of often hectic schedules to study what made this "Prince of Preachers" a prince among preachers. No minister should ever be able to find fault with this classic. This contents of this book and the author should never be considered to be "out-of-date" and "not up-to-par in this modern world." It is a timely piece which I thoroughly enjoyed. I would highly recommend it be read over and over again.

"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.
