Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was a British Baptist pastor and founder of the world’s first mega-church. For over 40 years vast crowds gathered at London’s Metropolitan Tabernacle to hear him speak. Spurgeon preached to a total of 10 million people in his lifetime, and his sermons were typeset, printed and sold throughout the English-speaking world. If that output of thousands of sermons isn’t voluminous enough, Spurgeon spent his off-days writing Biblical commentaries, study guides, daily devotionals and works of Christian theology, many of which are still in print. Spurgeon’s direct style and emphasis on personal spiritual growth made him famous as a pastor, but he did more than just preach. He put his words into practice by founding Sunday schools, churches, an orphanage and a Pastor’s College. He edited a magazine, "The Sword and the Trowel," and wrote many articles and books to help fellow pastors construct effective sermons. His magnum opus, "The Treasury of David," explicates and meditates on each of the Psalms and is still used by pastors worldwide. Among Spurgeon’s most enduring works are his books of daily devotionals, "Morning by Morning" and "Evening by Evening." In these two famous works Spurgeon offers daily devotionals on Biblical texts and challenges readers to apply the lessons of scripture to their own lives. These two books have served as guideposts to generations of Christians seeking deeper meaning within the scriptures, and offer daily opportunities to pause, reflect and listen to God’s voice in a busy world. Spurgeon’s penetrating sermons and powerful oratory held vast crowds of listeners spellbound in his day, and he is regarded as one of the strongest thinkers and writers in recent Christian literature. His works continue to provide invaluable insights into a great spiritual mind and are used as models by countless pastors and preachers. Reading the “Prince of Preachers” provides a great practical resource for spiritual growth, personal witnessing and Christian study.
