About the Author
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) served for 30 years at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. It is estimated that during his lifetime he spoke to 10 million people, and he became known as the "Prince of Preachers." His works fill over 60 volumes; and more than a century after his death, his sermons and devotional texts continue to challenge and touch Christians and non-Christians alike with their biblical grounding, eloquent text, and simple encouragement. Among his published books are "Lectures to My Students" (Hendrickson); "The Treasury of David" (Hendrickson), a devotional commentary on the Psalms; "All of Grace," the first Christian pocket-paperback published in the United States; numerous volumes of topical sermon collections; and the best-selling "Morning and Evening."

But in terms of the editing in the kindle version (from "fig publishers" or " fig tree publishers") which was $1 the typos seem to increase as the book goes on. It needs editing, even an quick browse by the publishers through each chapter would suffice to catch many typos..
There were parts I had no idea what the sentence conveyed, because a word was missing. In fact many parts like that.
The misspellings and typos, we're distracting, especially in the later parts of the book.
I bought this Kindle edition with excitement because it was only one dollar; perhaps I should have bought another publishers edition.
This is one of my top 5 books. All of Spurgeon's works are worth the effort and resources to secure (such as his autobiography, commentary on Psalms called Treasury of David, salvific work titled All of Grace, and monumental 63 volume sermon set :), but that is not always feasible. If you were to have only one book by Spurgeon, I would say this should be it.
As has been said in the other more negative reviews: the presentation is not that great (this is the bibliobazar edition). The book itself looks very clean and sharp; it's a good size too, which I appreciate (just has a good hold and feel in your hands as you read). BUT, the type size is extremely small and the font is just okay. There are little spot marks and smudges in some places (though the text remains legible), due to the book being a photocopy of an earlier print. Also, this is only the first volume of what is a 4 volume set (comprised of Lecture Series 1,2, and 3 and "Commenting and Commentaries"), the whole of which can be found here on Amazon in one convenient edition. Just search for the ISBN 978-0851519661 and you'll find it (notice the page count compared to all the others; the complete version clocks in at a whopping 911 pages). The full edition is produced by Baker and is very high quality.
Lastly, as this material dates back to the 1800s and is therefore open source, free PDFs of each Lectures series are available. Just search "lectures to my students pdf" and they should come up.
Wow. I mean Wow.
Not only the content, but how the issues that he was facing with doctrine (Downgrade Controversy) are the same challenges we face in evangelicalism today.
This really is a 'must read' for every seminary student, pastor, and minister/servant of the gospel of Christ.
You will be blessed in reading this book.
