This thin volume is addressed to every reader—whoever they are, whatever they are and whenever they are. This was Spurgeon’s “earnest word” of the availability of salvation written in 1885. And it’s very much on target today.

The updating and abridging was done without removing the oral-presentation rhythm of the man to preached to ten thousand every Sunday (without amplification). His sermons had to be logical and easy-to-follow. They are.

Spurgeon, aside from Lewis and Schaeffer, is one of my favorite authors. Though known far better for his rhetorical skills, (and being called the "Prince of Preachers"), he is just as good with his pen. "All of Grace" is basically a biblical analysis on the sufficiency of Christ's sacrifice, and the need of "sola fides", no works. He uses life experiences, stories, and of course, scripture to back up his case. He also addresses issues in the hearts of "sirred" sinners, and uses, once again, his ...more
Profound and succinct.

Spurgeon's prose is a mixed lot. When he is truly writing he's clear and moving- especially his analogies and metaphors. However he seems to oft-times have preacher's synapse misfire and he goes on a long soliloquy which tends to be mired in high king James neo poetry.

As far as the subject: I'm no expert in Christian eschatology and the nuances of particular denominations so I find critiques based upon these grounds to be focusing solely upon the trees rather than the fore
I just finished this wonderful work of 125 short pages in which Charles Spurgeon presents the work of the Trinity in saving sinners. This book has a decidedly evangelistic tone, as the preacher addresses the reader in the imperative saying things like, “Come and see,” “Now look at this,” and “Listen to me.” I believe this book would be profitable reading not only for unsaved individuals, but for someone who is a new believer, someone who’s unsure if he’s saved, someone who wants to understand ho ...more
Very easy study to read. A very gospel centered that it was all about the greatness of Jesus and the Lord's redemptive heart towards his own. He deals with the sin that entangles us by showing us Jesus. He reminds us that the Lord knows very well that we cannot change our own heart and cannot cleanse our own nature, but he can when we submit to him by faith in Jesus. With faith comes repentance. If repentance is missing, then your faith is short lived and on shaky ground. Repentance is our turni ...more
Perhaps best read as meditative-devotional material, All of Grace is less a direct unfolding of doctrine along a progressive rationale and more a well-packed traveler’s knapsack loaded with “all the necessities” for a pilgrimage into the heart of Christian theology. Some chapters may sound altogether too basic, yet in others Spurgeon illuminates many familiar notions with his exceptional gift for metaphor and analogy. The talent for religious writing that is displayed here seems to come along on ...more
This was a great book that very clearly shows the Gospel and our utter need for grace.

It is written almost as a personal letter to one not believing, but I feel very strongly that we who believe need to be reminded often of the grace that saves us. We are quick to give ourselves credit, seek to earn God's favor, or even spiral in despair as we see we are no match for the demands in the law of God. Spurgeon paints a beautiful picture of the love God has for His people and very simply articulates
A fine explanation of the doctrines of grace by Spurgeon. One I will probably return to for its clarity of thought.
John Martindale
Funny how inconsistent Calvinist can be. Spurgeon being true to his Calvinistic self includes those parts of his theology, like "only those God predestined before the foundation of the world can believe and man has no part in any of it, its all of grace" But then pretty much the whole book is his pleading with men to put their faith in Jesus, he even encourages people to surround themselves with those teaching the gospel, because the more someone hears something, the more likely they are to thin ...more

I CANNOT COMMEND THIS BOOK ENOUGH!!! I would plead with everyone who happens to stumble across this review to read and re-read this classic book. I have now gone through All of Grace three times and plan on reading it many times more. Please, read this book to learn about the glorious gospel of grace! Learn about justification by faith alone and come to see that Jesus is the author and perfecter of our faith! Seriously consider reading this book, then buying multiple copies of it and handing the ...more

This is what Christianity is all about: Grace. Without God's grace - forgiveness we would never be able to receive salvation from our sins and have a relationship with God.

Spurgeon defines very clearly how we must not think that salvation is by works, but only by grace. Salvation is a gift and not something we can buy through works. As Paul also points out, there is nothing that we can do to obtain salvation. Like a gift, salvation can be either accepted it, or refused.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was a man who loved the Lord dearly. I recommend not only this book, but all of his works, knowing that they will bless you, as they have blessed countless before us. This book outlines the Gospel of Jesus Christ--the true Gospel. Men like Spurgeon would rather die than alter (even if slightly) this precious treasure of heavenly gold that has been graciously given to us from the Lord. For the Gospel must not be tampered with. It our job to understand it, and then to expla ...more
Angelyn Vaughan
This was my first Spurgeon book and I guess my expectations were a little off. I was expecting truths I had never pondered that radically changed what I think about God, i.e. "Knowing God" by J. I. Packer. Instead, this book is all about the basics. It's written to an unbeliever as he ponders the truth, converts, and is starting to be made like Christ. It's full of good and essential doctrine, but so little of it was new to me or stated in a way that I hadn't heard that I found myself wanting to ...more

The Righteousness of God
In this short book Spurgeon exposes the meaning of God's grace and its effects in the life of men and women that answered his calling. The obstacles faced by the christian when he pursues God's will are overcomed by faith and this is a expression of God's grace. Our sins can be subdued when we experience God's grace. This gift from God makes us righteous, provides reconciliation with our holy God and gives us peace. A clear and illuminated exposition about a central artic
Classic book explaining God's grace. Quite readable for something written in the 1800s.
The Law is for the self=righteous, to humble their pride; the Gospel is for the lost, to remove their despair.
He is able to treat the ungodly as if they had been always godly.
You must not meassure God's corn with your bushel.
Faith is only the channel, not the fountainhead.
The world is no friend to grace.
Brian Eshleman
Spurgeon seems determined to keep his rhetorical gifts on a leash and to keep this little volume very simple, but talent keeps escaping from his pen. Whenever he does, almost begrudgingly, let loose an illustration, it is fantastic. The Prince of Preachers is equally compelling in his candor of how much he needed the intervention of the grace of God and needs it so long as he lives.

Although the cover to this edition is not the one i read, it's still entitled All of Grace and is by Rev C.H. Spurgeon.

Also absent the CD.

Found within this book was the reflection of Christ's grace upon grace; unselfish desire to received deserved glory.

Reconciled back to the Father God; we have in Christ faith at a cost that is foolish to ignore.

I think what I got the most out of this book is the humble and loving heart of Spurgeon towards the lost. These are portrayed amazingly clear in the introduction and conclusion. Throughout the book, you will see an earnest attempt at communicating a clear yet simple message so that even the less educated person may be able to grasp truth and respond.

This book literally will preach to you. All of Grace is a book where Spurgeon recorded his salvation sermon. I can hear his voice and feel his tone and catch the passion that he wanted to deliver. One thing I like is the sincerity of Charles Spurgeon in delivering his material: it is simple, passionate, persuasive and compassionate. The message is clear, firm and I learn a lot from Charles; of how and what to deliver in such preaching.
Victor Moreno
Explica detalladamente como la gracia de Dios es mas grande de lo que imaginamos, aparte como el canal para llegar a su gracia es la fe y somos salvos por ella.
This is not a book for the perfect. It is not a book for the easily offended, it is not a book for the atheist and it is certainly not a book for those without need of help. It is, however, a book for those who find themselves in need: In need of a Saviour, in need of happiness or in need of a better perspective. If you find your heart in a need of a kick start, or if you don't, read this book. It has passion and zeal by the bucketload, but perhaps most importantly; within its cover is a good ol ...more

Great little book for the person inquiring about salvation.
Caleb Sargent
This book is pertinent to your understanding how salvation works.
Great little book which reminds us that salvation is God's work from start to finish. Written in a winsome and personal style for seekers. Direct and challenging in it's day, I'm sure. But illustrations etc seem a bit dated now.
Nevertheless, it is also invaluable to the Christian , touching on the topics of repentance, faith, justification, and their relationship with grace...
Helpful for preachers who wrestle with the tension of salvation being God's initiative, but at the same time call people
Very good--the illustrations and plain language Spurgeon uses (as well as the order he addresses his arguments) to explain the Christian faith are fantastic. The truths are timeless, while the writing, style, and overall feel of the book definitely feel out-dated.

Quick read, although I chose to take my time. I recommend it to all who are looking for a quick, clear gospel presentation on the Cross and grace. (The complete text of the book is available online at

I look forward to reading more by Spurgeon.
Jeff Bettger
Spurgeon is an author who I was not fond of a few years ago. His word pictures seemed tangentile, and he often seemed to be going down multiple trains of thought at once. I kept running into his work, and now he is very dear to me.
This book is super encouraging. It is him bluntly sharing a rich theology of grace. This is the Gospel being presented. A great book to give to non-Christians, and a great reminder for those who do believe. I recommend it.
Daniel Hill
Although this book is a basic presentation of the gospel and clearly aimed at people investigating the Christian faith, I was still able, as a long-standing Christian, to get so much out of it. Everyone needs to continually come back to the gospel of grace and Spurgeon lays it all down in such a straightforward and direct manner that it still feels fresh over a hundred years later. The church in these days certainly needs to return to All of Grace!
Jordan Dorsett
This incredible book is perpetually worshipful, down to the last word. It's like a 120 page hymn. The challenge was to not grow weary in this constant adoration of God, because the more I read of God the more exposed my wretchedness became. All of Grace is difficult to read quickly, simply because Spurgeon aims for topics that demand pauses for awe. Highly, highly recommended for the believer, the wandering, and the stranger to God.

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 M ...more
