'A thankless task.' 'A waste of time.' Two of the ways worn out people have described the Christian training of children. You don't have to feel that way! In this book you will find encouragement, practical help and biblical principles. You will also go away with a new vision of the importance of the work in which you are involved.

I'm pretty sure any book written by C.H. Spurgeon is worth your time. This book did not disappoint. Spurgeon offers encouragement and advice when it comes to teaching children about Jesus. Whether you are a parent or a Sunday school teacher-- or aunt, uncle etc you can have a powerful impact on a child's spiritual life. Spurgeon reminds us that ultimately whether the child chooses to know Christ is in Gods hands, we are called to be faithful to pray for the child and teach them diligently about ...more

This was one of the most refreshing books I have read in the past year. Not only was it loaded theologically, it stirred the affections and my will to go and do children's ministry. This was the first Spurgeon book I have read, and it certainly will not be my last if this is how he writes. His passion and zeal for the gospel shines through every page, and it is incredible to see how he can ink out 5 pages on one line of Scripture. Whether you are in children's ministry or not, you need to read ...more

Definitely a must read for parents, teachers, and pastors.

Read it first in 2009 and since then, I have returned to visit it several times.

I shared some quotes on my blog:

I read this when my children were young about 15 years ago. It was one of the most helpful & encouraging books I read. Something that has stuck with me is that we should never assume children are too young for theology!

The Prince of Preachers tells, in startling clarity, why ministry to children should be foremost in a preacher's mind. It is a true antidote to delusions of grandeur.
Becca Harris
A short read but one of the most encouraging books on training and teaching kids that I have ever read!

My all time favorite read on the subject of how to commingle children with theology. His profound words are just as true and relevant today as when he first wrote them.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) was England's best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. 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 ...more
