(Charles Haddon), 1834-1892 [author.]Contributor(s): Spurgeon, Susannah, -1903 [compiler.] | Harrald, Josep [compiler.]Publisher: Edinburgh : The Banner of Truth Trust, [1962]Copyright date: ©1962Edition: Revised edtiionDescription: xviii, 562 pages : black and white illustrations ; 23 cmContent type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeSubject(s): Spurgeon, C. H. (Charles Haddon), 1834-1892 | Baptists -- Great Britain -- Clergy -- Biography | Evangelists -- Great Britain -- Biography | Christian biographySummary: At the age of seventeen, Spurgeon became the pastor of a handful of believers at Waterbeach in Cambridgeshire, meeting in what had been a dovecote. Within five years, he had become the best-known minister in the Metropolis, and within the next two, judged competent to conduct a service of National Humiliation on account of the Indian Mutiny in the Crystal Palace, where almost 24,000 persons were assembled. But this volume is far from being a record of human fame and success. From his first years of childhood in rural Essex to the first years of revival in London, Spurgeon pours out his story with an enthralling fullness and color that emphasizes the center and passion of his life. Whatever Spurgeon did, he did it for Christ; and therefore, even his autobiography leads our eyes from his own works of service to the Savior behind them.

At the age of seventeen, Spurgeon became the pastor of a handful of believers at Waterbeach in Cambridgeshire, meeting in what had been a dovecote. Within five years, he had become the best-known minister in the Metropolis, and within the next two, judged competent to conduct a service of National Humiliation on account of the Indian Mutiny in the Crystal Palace, where almost 24,000 persons were assembled. But this volume is far from being a record of human fame and success. From his first years of childhood in rural Essex to the first years of revival in London, Spurgeon pours out his story with an enthralling fullness and color that emphasizes the center and passion of his life.
