The Forgotten Spurgeon
Charles Spurgeon is one of the most well-known and beloved preachers of the 19th century. However, according to Iain Murray in this book, much of what Spurgeon stood for was either quickly forgotten or left out in the biographies that immediately followed his passing. "It seemed to me that the Spurgeon of the sermons (which Murray had been studying) was a forgotten man and the more that I read the more the conviction deepened." Pg 4
Spurgeon is often referred to, as the "Prince of Preachers" People tend to see him as a great, sometimes humorous speaker. While this was true, Spurgeon was also dead serious when it came to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Throughout his lifetime, Spurgeon found himself in the midst of three major controversies. The first controversy centered on the weakening evangelicalism that Spurgeon was observing in his day. Spurgeon's preaching was focused on the Doctrines of Grace, while many of his contemporaries saw the Doctrines of Grace as a thing of the past. The second controversy dealt with the subject of Baptism. The third, and perhaps most well known, was the Down-Grade controversy. Murray does a commendable job in navigating through these controversies and showing the reader how Spurgeon dealt with each one. Spurgeon was and is today being used by God to show many their need for a Savior.
This book is very helpful in understanding Spurgeon's theology and what he truly believed. I highly recommend this book so people can have a clearer better rounded view of Spurgeon and appreciate the passion this man had for Christ.
Goes into the "real" life story of Charles Spurgeon. Revealing his
doctrine and beliefs of the scriptures. Very in-depth and enlightening
to me. I'm still reading it and enjoying it very much!
