To know the Holy Spirit is to know Him as an ever-present, loving Friend and mighty Helper. From the Scriptures, Charles H. Spurgeon shows that the Holy Spirit wants to be our Comforter, Teacher, and mighty Advocate. The miraculous life the early Christians lived amazed the world and “turned it upside down.” Today, many are experiencing the same healing, miracles, and othe ...more

"To a great extent, this generation has gradually and almost imperceptibly become godless. Science has discovered second causes for us. Thus, many have forgotten the first great Cause--the Author of all. Even among professing Christians, while there is a great amount of religion, there is too little godliness." Those words were spoken over 130 years ago by Charles Haddon Spurgeon, hailed in England as the "Prince of Preachers." He spoke to a congregation of over 5000 every Sunday for decades, wi ...more

Do you need a more robust understanding of the Holy Spirit? Look no further. Whoa! What this book taught me is a worthy end, and reading the book was such a worthy means. Every word deepened my understanding- and, consequentially, love- for God's gift to us in the Holy Spirit. I couldn't even take it all in. I want to keep this book on my nightstand always.

(P.S I believe few things in my life have felt as providential as my discovery of this book. I stumbled upon it at a service plaza in somewh
Once again, I have been inspired by one of the greatest and godly men in history. Spurgeon reminds me from Scripture that to be known by the Spirit of God is an act of God's grace. I cherish what he wrote on page 107
"The law commands and makes us know what God requires of us, but the gospel goes further and inclines us to obey the will of the Lord. It also enables us to practically walk in His ways. Under the dominion of grace, "God worketh in you both to will and to act according to His good p

This short book, compiled from some of Spurgeon's sermons may appeal to some ex-charismatics for its length and title looking for some hope that they can remain reformed yet "spirit led". It's not that. I'm afraid that the pursuit of the miraculous works of the Spirit in this book would cause some to miss the greater work of God the Holy Spirit in his people. The work of comforter, teacher and Christ exalter aren't the sparkling arena filling acts of God, rather the dreary miserable daily buildi ...more

One of the best books I've read on the Holy Spirit. Charles Spurgeon really breaks down who the Holy Spirit is and what He can do in our lives if we allow Him too. I love his writing style and how real he is! This is the first Spurgeon book I've read, but definitely not the last. There's no "fluff" on this pages and I'm loving it! I have highlights and notes written all over it. Can't wait to finish it and read it again!!

I have always loved Spurgeon as a good reformed baptist would. This little book on select sermons on the Holy Spirit is quite refreshing. As always Spurgeon uses the English language exquisitely to convey the truths of God in his very unique style. After spending a little time in this book everyday for the past two weeks I can see a genuine difference in my life in acknowledging the work of the Holy Spirit and asking more of Him in my time in the word.

The person of the Holy Spirit is often not thought about by many believers. This is a great work that keeps the ministry of the Spirit in biblical bounds, glorifying Christ The Lord. I would certainly recommend this book.

An insightful book that delves into the Holy Spirit's work in believers' lives. C.H. Spurgeon writes in a compelling way, urging the reader on every page to consider the beauty of the Spirit and yield to His promptings.

Difficult to read or understand in parts, but some very helpful and useful material in other parts by the same token. I hadn't read any of Spurgeon's writings before but would keep a lookout for more of his work.
Kinda difficult to understand due to the 19 century English. Nevertheless, I can see that Spurgeon attempts to enlighten people towards the role of the Holy Spirit in Christians.

Book Review
The book Holy Spirit Power by Charles Spurgeon is about one of the three in the Holy Trinity, The Comforter. The Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit is in the old testament of the Bible and the new.
Mr.Spurgeon starts the book as an introduction to who the spirit is, saying that when people hear the word spirit they automatically think of an evil spirit, but the Holy Spirit is kind, comforting, and reassuring, but should not be taken as a joke. Half way into th

Holy Spirit can be complicated to share to others because of a various misinterpretations of people but this book elaborated Holy Spirit as a Person, far more than a force or a concept. Technically, Charles' literary skill is undoubtedly versatile that it can trigger the interest of both the believers and the people who are still yet to be converted. This book illustrated the Gospel of Christ in regards to the Holy Spirit in an effective and efficient way - a short but full-packed read indeed. I ...more

What a proclamation! What a mighty call to arms! This pocket sized hand grenade will accompany me into the ministry field for years to come. Packed full of passionate exhortations about the reality of Holy Spirit power, Spurgeon manages to be humble and down-to-earth one minute, yet is full of authoritative boldness the next, resulting in a proclamation of truth that leaps of the pages. This book will be a valuable weapon in the arsenal of any Christian pursing a life of freedom and truth amidst ...more

This little book is AMAZING with some HUGE truths of the Holy Spirit and how He operates, leads, corrects, and instructs. I recommend it to anyone who is serious about walking closer with the Lord and gaining a very detailed and fruitful understanding of the operations of the Holy Spirit and the power He provides to every believer! There is a whole level most Christians do not ever experience in God, and Charles Spurgeon spells out how to walk on those levels with God! Highly recommended for the ...more

I wanted to learn more about the Holy Spirit and how He works, and considered several books before deciding on this one. I had read one other Spurgeon book—Satan, a Defeated Foe—many years ago and liked it, and I’m happy I decided on Spurgeon again.

Since Spurgeon lived in the 1800s, his writing style is a bit difficult for many of today’s readers, including me, and the subject matter is pretty deep spiritually and theologically, so I had to go a bit slowly with this one, but it contains some rea

Recommends it for: all christians, all pastors, all families
You don't know who the holy spirit is aka the holy ghost until your read this book.

the true power of God is really unkown to us because we don't look at having a relationship with God. This is a book that introduces the power of God and who God is on the personal level.

this is a must read

I recommend this book for all people teens and adults.

Out of 5 stars I give this book 6. It's no wonder Spurgeon is called "The prince of preachers"!
Spurgeon never disappoints but this collection is deeply satisfying.

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
