The first book I've read by Spurgeon.

Spurgeon emphasizes our need to be in communion with God by prayer and he explains why there is power in prayer. There is power in prayer not for the fulfillment of selfish desires, but only for the will of God and that is, in a nutshell, why there is power in prayer (when our desires are conformed to His will).

Loved it.

There is one area that I would want to quibble with Spurgeon. He says, near the end, that "grace is God." That is not quite true. God is gra

Charles Spurgeon never fails to encourage and inspire me. A book that only takes a couple of hours to read but that could be contemplated for a lifetime.

I have never to this day heard a sermon on prayer, just saying that the Church I feel has lost its passion for Prayer.

In 1854, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 20, became pastor of London's famed New Park Street Church (formerly pastored by the famous Baptist theologian John Gill). The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey M ...more
