Considered by his peers then and now as "one of evangelical Christianity's immortals," Charles Spurgeon's remarkable expository preaching in the city of London during the 1800's was a revival explosion that is still felt today. With results unparalleled in England since the days of Whitefield and Wesley, Spurgeon's nearly four decades of ministry remain one of the greatest pastoral, evangelistic, social ministries ever seen. Lifted up by the reviving and quickening power of the Holy Spirit, Charles Spurgeon's life and effectiveness was clearly rooted in this: his deepest desire centered in living a life of God-honoring Christian holiness. Exalting his Savior in godly living and preaching the gospel with power were his one consuming passion. Spurgeon believed that true happiness could only be found when we are free from the power of sin, when the gospel has purified our lives and we have a deep desire for holiness.
Most everything this man wrote is good for the soul. His thoughts on holiness in the life of those who claim to be followers of Christ is desperately needed today in light of the church's low view of sin and holiness. Highly recommended for any person who genuinely trusts in Christ.
