The story of Spurgeon’s life, largely in his own words, from the events of childhood and youth and through the period of his mature ministry. C.H. Spurgeon Autobiography is an inspiring record of a Christian life which continues to be of blessing for so many.
‘In his heart’, wrote Archibald Brown, ‘Jesus stood unapproached, unrivalled. He worshipped Him; he adored Him. He was our Lord’s delighted captive.’ Whatever Spurgeon did he did it for Christ. None can read these pages without being indelibly impressed with the author’s words, ‘there is no time for serving the Lord like the very earliest days of youth.’
About the Author
C.H. Spurgeon (June 19, 1834 – January 31, 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher who remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is still known as the "Prince of Preachers".
Banner of Truth Trust released this revised edition of Spurgeon's Autobiography, which originally appeared in four volumes. Having completed volume one of the now two volume set, I can say without hesitation that my respect and admiration of this great man of God has grown even greater. While any autobiography lacks the continuity of a well-researched biography, there is a freshness to it that is endearing. Spurgeon relates anecdote-like memories, along with detailed descriptions of some of the more pertinent events of his life. The chapters dealing with his conviction of sin and subsequent conversion are especially enlightening. Susannah Spurgeon wrote several chapters that are also included - mostly about their courtship and early wedded life. This volume deals mainly with Spurgeon's childhood and early ministry with the New Park Street Baptist Church, and it is not without some of Spurgeon's own humor. Very good indeed!
