Book Description

Charles Haddon (C.H.) Spurgeon (June 19, 1834 – January 31, 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher who remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is still known as the "Prince of Preachers." This despite the fact that he was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition, defending the Church in agreement with the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith understanding, against liberalism and pragmatic theological tendencies even in his day.
In his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to around 10,000,000 people,[1] often up to 10 times each week at different places. His sermons have been translated into many languages. Spurgeon was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London for 38 years.[2] He was part of several controversies with the Baptist Union of Great Britain and later had to leave that denomination.[3] In 1857, he started a charity organization called Spurgeon's which now works globally. He also founded Spurgeon's College, which was named after him posthumously.
Spurgeon was a prolific author of many types of works including sermons, an autobiography, a commentary, books on prayer, a devotional, a magazine, poetry,[4] hymnist,[5] and more. Many sermons were transcribed as he spoke and were translated into many languages during his lifetime. Arguably, no other author, Christian or otherwise, has more material in print than C.H. Spurgeon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great sermon June 12, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an excellent read that I believe should be read by all Christians and would be good for Law of Attraction followers to read as well, because it ties into the power of prayer to bring blessing in many forms into your life, while explaining the higher moral values to be accompanied with your wishes.

It was a true eye opener and made me think differently about the wants,dream and desires we all have throughout our lives. It gave me appreciation for what I have and actually showed me how to achieve more, but how to do so only if it be the Lord's will. I would have loved to been present at one of Charles Spurgeons actual sermons. I am sure it would have been life changing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really learned a lot ~ January 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Someone online had wished me a New Year's greeting that said "May you have Blessings Beyond Jabez" I did not know about the Prayer of Jabez, so I googled it & saw some negative internet comments about it being a prosperity teaching that was based in error. I decided I was going to find out for sure. I bought this Kindle download by Spurgeon & was so glad I did! I was amazed at how much was covered in a relatively short booklet. It is written in the style of a time gone by when people took time to truly THINK. Spurgeon is a real inspiration to pray and meditate on the Word of God. He took the prayer, and for me opened a doorway of insight into my own life & how I look at things that resulted in a deeper walk with my Lord, Jesus Christ. I am very happy I learned of this teaching & I feel Spurgeon's booklet was the best introduction I could have had with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dose of common sense from the past June 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You won't find 20th-21st century get rich prayers in this short volume work, but you will discover a biblical significance to the prayer of Jabez. Spurgeon delivers, as always, an airtight and biblical understanding of the text. Highly recommended (anything by Spurgeon should be highly recommended). The work is simple, small, and a quick read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great words of advice on a time honored scripture May 16, 2014
By mwh

First let me say I did not know Spurgeon was from the late 1700's.
First let me say I have tried the prayer, and it works 100% of the time as I would expect it Pray it earnestly and without reservation at the same time, do not pray for selfish motivation. Let me say that when you read this you may have to read it two or three times to get the true meaning and let it soak in. Rated the first time and contemplate what it has to say and then go back and read it later and I think you will get more out of it at least I did. May God bless you as you continue your studies and if you read this.

Spurgeon is definitely "old english" and a little difficult to read word for word. He has such a wonderful message that I couldn't just leave the book unread. Once I got to the point that I could read over his "thees" & "thous", etc and replace those with modern "English" it was very enlightening. I have read another of the "Jabez" books but found Spurgeon to cover a much broader scope of life and how we should pray or not pray about life...especially, in the latter part of his book.

The old time teachers of The Word tell it like it is. I was blessed by his teaching and you will be too, if you have ears to hear.
