About the author

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

2,856 books1,240 followers
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 Music Hall. In these venues Spurgeon frequently preached to audiences numbering more than 10,000—all in the days before electronic amplification. In 1861 the congregation moved permanently to the newly constructed Metropolitan Tabernacle.

Wonderful excerpts from Spurgeon here! Most of these portions focus on an intimate relationship with Christ. The selections weren't too unified, but I did appreciate and learn from them all.

There were two instances I had a small contention. First, Spurgeon in the first excerpts seems to imply that we are to seek spiritual "experiences" of Christ's presence. I did not see his support for these conclusions to be adequate from a scriptural perspective. For the Song of Songs, I'm not sure his hermeneutic was 100% accurate because he failed to mention what the passage would have meant to the original writer/audience and simply expounded what it signifies about Christ and the church.

Lastly, whoever the publisher was for this seems to promote Spurgeon on the back of the book like the health and wealth gospel, which was totally misleading! Here's part of it "Real contact with Jesus. ...Healing for your body, God's fulfillment of your needs... protection if God, total freedom from fear." All of these only partially capture what was actually discussed in the book. Half-truths at best, purposely misleading at worst.

The content of the book was FAR from the health and wealth false gospel, but the cover of the book really messed it up on this one! Spurgeon probably would have had a bit to say about the cover ...

Stopping early. Spurgeon apparently thought Song of Solomon was a total allegory, and I don't, so each chapter was a bit aggravating. I love how he writes, though, so I need to find more books by him. This is the only one I own.
