Thought provoking 100+ year-old truths for modern preachers.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Lectures to My Students (Paperback)
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 This contents of this book and the author should never be considered to be "out-of-date" and "not up-to-par in this modern world."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.
