Book Description

“Read this book to generate thought and reflection. Read it to find the perfect quote for your book or sermon or blog post. Read it and I am certain you will be blessed.”
Tim Challies // Pastor of Grace Fellowship Church, blogger, author of The Next Story, Sexual Detox, The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment.

This book will introduce a new generation to the Prince of Preachers. Many of these quotes are short enough to post on Twitter, but powerful enough to change your life.”
Adrian Warnock // Blogger,, Author, Raised With Christ – How The Resurrection Changes Everything

“It is great to have another reliable book of poignant quotes by the Prince of Preachers, especially one that includes the source of the sayings as well as a Scripture index. Because Spurgeon was so full of Christ, he will undoubtedly and deservedly continue to be quoted until our Lord’s return.”
Tom Ascol // Pastor, Grace Baptist Church of Cape Coral, FL, Executive Director, Founders Ministries

“Stephen McCaskell has done a great service for those of us who are not Spurgeon scholars. This collection offers wonderful, concise quotes on many subjects and serves as a reminder of Spurgeon’s brilliant preaching and wit, as well as his powerful insights into God’s word.”
Barnabas Piper // Writer, Book Reviewer and Columnist,

“Stephen McCaskell has sifted through the enormous volume of material produced by Spurgeon and pulled out some of the best gems. He even organized them by topic and scripture reference! I can’t think of a Christian that won’t be blessed by this book. Get this book today and put it to use.”
Stephen Altrogge // Pastor, Blogger, Songwriter, Author, The Greener Grass Conspiracy and Game Day for the Glory of God.

“Few people are as quotable as Charles Spurgeon. Few people have spent more time in his work than Stephen McCaskell. These two truths come together perfectly in this new must-have Spurgeon resource. You’ll laugh, cry, be convicted, and be encouraged – maybe all on the same page!”
Luke Wilson // Pastor, book publisher, & founder of Deep Roots Library

I am a great admirer of Charles Spurgeon, the great 19th century Baptist preacher. There are few pastors and authors who I turn to as frequently as Spurgeon, whose skill with handling the Word of God is matched by his mastery of a good turn of phrase.

It's this latter gift that I think first attracted me to the Prince of Preachers. Few authors, outside of perhaps C.S. Lewis and G.K. Chesterton, are as eminently quotable as Spurgeon on such a wide variety of subjects. Sometimes dreadfully serious, other times displaying a sharp wit that puts the best modern satirists to shame.

This is why I'm so thankful for Through the Eyes of C.H. Spurgeon, a new book of Spurgeon quotes compiled by Stephen McCaskell. McCaskell has painstakingly compiled quotes from Spurgeon's vast library of books and sermons, covering topics ranging from character and mormonism to revenge and substitution.

Here are just a few standout items:

On doctrine:

"Men go after novel and false doctrines because they do not really know the truth; for if the truth had gotten into them and filled them, they would not have room for these day-dreams. (A Good Start, Page 108)"

On false teaching:

"It very often happens that the converts that are born in excitement die when the excitement is over. (The Soul Winner, Page 16)"

On preaching:

"We hear complaints that the minister speaks too harshly and talks too much of judgment. Saved sinners never make that complaint. (The Ship On Fire-A Voice Of Warning, Volume 10, Sermon #550 - Genesis 19:17, 19)"

Through the Eyes of C.H. Spurgeon is carefully organized, lovingly crafted and tremendously helpful resource for Spurgeon admirers. Whether you're looking for a great quote to use in an illustration, want a conversation starting status update, or are just looking for a encouraging word from a departed brother in the Lord, you will greatly benefit from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Huge! December 6, 2012
Wow. What an incredible resource! This book will be helpful to many people--lay persons and pastors alike. I HIGHLY recommend that you pick up this book. You will not be able to put it down. It's a resource that as a pastor, I will be using for years to come.

Stephen McCaskell has done a fabulous job assembling some of the greatest Spurgeon quotes out there. Spurgeon himself, one of history's greatest preachers, has influenced many people (myself included) with his eloquence and word choices and superior doctrinal insight.

What I love most about this book is that I have some of Spurgeon's greatest work wrapped up into one book, and each coincide with a particular topic. Spurgeon's quotes on Arminianism and Calvinism are classic. I'm also excited about the fact that so many different types of categories are included. For example, you can read what Spurgeon says about: Afflictions, Character, Evolution, Gospel(!), Justification, Prayer, Joy, Trials and Work. This is an invaluable resource; get this on your desk!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent new book of Spurgeon quotes December 10, 2012
This is an excellent compilation of Spurgeon quotes categorized by subject and Bible reference. If you are looking for a Christmas present for a preacher, look no further, go BUY IT NOW! This book will introduce a new generation to the prince of preachers. Many of these quotes are short enough to fit into a post on Twitter, but some are powerful enough to change the course of your life. Gleaned over hundreds of hours of labour and skilfully categorised you will regularly want to dip in and be pastored by possibly the greatest proclaimer of the gospel the English language ever produced. It's just as well inexpensive CDs of Spurgeon's sermons are available as this book could otherwise seriously damage your wallet by stoking an insatiable desire to read more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quote selections and very well indexed February 2, 2013
Stephen McCaskell has done an excellent job compiling the choicest of quotes from the Prince of Preaches himself. Spurgeon's wit and theological understanding of the gospel is unsurpassed by most.

Another big plus is that the source is given for each quote, and indexed by scripture and topic.

This book will prove to be a help in the following ways:
1. To be read in your personal devotions (in addition to the Holy Bible)
2. For the Father (or mother) who is leading family worship and wants to be able to illustrate topical points from the Word
3. For the home Bible study leader
4. And most obviously, for the preaching pastor of any church.

I strongly encourage everyone who loves their Bible and the ministry of C. H. Spurgeon to add this to their library!

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable Resource for Christians in All Walks of Life December 7, 2012
Spurgeon is one of those unique historical figures who has the capacity to inspire and discourage at the same time, especially those who labor as preachers. On the one hand, Spurgeon is a master at combining vast Scriptural knowledge with commonsense wisdom and a startling array of illustrations and it would behoove anyone who teaches from the Scriptures to sit at his feet for a while. On the other hand, the apparent ease with which he worked his brilliance (forgive the gushing; you'll understand once you start reading) makes him a tough act to follow.

Stephen McCaskell has done us all a great service in compiling and arranging these quotes, providing an enjoyable introduction to an historical figure every Christian should meet. Highly recommended!
