Book Description

Can strong Bible teaching be enjoyable? Absolutely-especially when it comes from the pen of Charles Haddon Spurgeon. This big collection of Spurgeon's choice works (more than 1,400 pages!) features scores of sermons, plus complete books like All of Grace and John Ploughman's Talks, all lightly updated for ease of reading.

He was converted at age fifteen; by twenty-one, he was London's most popular preacher, ultimately speaking to crowds of six thousand or more at the Metropolitan Tabernacle. He also published many sermons and religious books.

This is not a book you just pick up for a moment; it demands attention or Mr. Spurgeon's words will go right over your heart and never touch your hear. Be prepared to sit for a bit as you digest east sentence the "Prince of Preachers" states. He has had me nodding in agreement and passionately crying at other times (I'm really not that much of a sap); but he goes deep with each spoken word. His love and passion for Christ is breathtaking and inspiring; he truly preaches Christ in a way I have never heard other preachers even try to attempt.

I honestly feel this book is a must read for the Christian that is beyond spiritual milk and ready to go deeper into their relationship with Jesus Christ. I love this book!

There are truly lots of contents but they are all over the place, you have lectures, with books, with sermons...I wish it could be more organized, better indexed. Honestly, I can't complain because of the price(although you can find all this for free online and convert it into the kindle format) I am just too lazy to do that, but I rather just buy all the books, then all sermons and etc... as separate volumes even if it costs a bit more, at least you'll always have your library well organized.

Not bad by any means and for the price I can't complain much.

Now the content itself is purely amazing, I have always been a fan of Spurgeon but had never really read his works in one single piece and I HIGHLY recommend to ANY CHRISTIAN or NON CHRISTIAN. The best explanation of the Gospel, Salvation and Doctrine of God ever published is contained here, no doubt

Spurgeon is a very good preacher, and his theology is direct and simple but powerful. The book is a must have.

of Spurgeon! If you like Christian reading, I highly recommend this writer. He is eloquent, biblical, poetical, and can flat out write! His gift is elucidation of the Word of God. He feels it and brings you along for the ride. Get this book.

I really don't know how to review this, basically I am simply saying I absolutely love the work and doctrine of Charles Spurgeon. The book is very big and heavy to hold, but the contents is such a blessing.

A great compilation of the works of Spurgeon. The one structural downfall is that Partner did not use the version of the Bible that Spurgeon used for scripture. He should have been aware that the the audience for this book is Spurgeon fans, those who are very capable of ,and definitely want to, read Spurgeon's works in the complete original, especially the scripture. When reading, you hear the voice of Spurgeon, and then when it hits scripture, it feels like another voice enters. Aside from that, it's always a blessing to consider these writings.
