The clergy and ministers of all denominations, home and foreign missionaries, open-air preachers, Sunday-school and Bible-class teachers, tract-distributors, and Christians of all ranks will here find much that will help them to exercise that "all-round ministry" of which Mr. Spurgeon himself was so earnest an advocate and so bright an example.
The Puritan William Perkins was the first to articulate prayer and preaching in his treatise on hermeneutics and homiletics titled The Art of Prophesying (1592). Perkins considered the pastor to be in the great succession of biblical prophets and apostles. Perkins’ method of preaching consists of interpretation, analysis, and application.
To English preacher Charles Spurgeon, winning souls for Christ was “that most royal employment.” This volume of his sermons focuses on that very topic. Some of these messages he delivered as college lectures, and others he gave before congregations of Sunday churchgoers. Gathered into one volume, these sermons will explain what it means to “win a soul”, how to do it, and why our efforts matter.
When Jesus gathered with his disciples on the eve of his death, he led them in the ritual of communion for the first time. He told them to “do this in remembrance of me”, and Christians worldwide still regularly partake in this symbolic act. Till He Come is a collection of short sermons and devotional addresses by Charles Spurgeon focusing on this theme. This great Victorian preacher will provide listeners with new insight into the spirit of this ecumenical tradition.
Charles Spurgeon was one of the most prolific and influential preachers of the 19th century, an influence that extends into the modern age. His spiritual passion is evident in this moving sermon as he focuses on the primary message of the Gospel. He states, “With all our preaching, I am afraid that we too much omit the simple explanation of the essential act in salvation.” This sermon provides that simple explanation, detailing the simple steps necessary to what Spurgeon calls “the grandest act of the Christian’s life.”
When Thomas Watson tells Christians to enact “holy violence”, he’s not talking about physical warfare. He’s urging Christians to take up spiritual arms in their pursuit of righteousness. Watson, a Puritan preacher and writer, uses passionate language to capture the fervor with which Christians should perform their duties of prayer, Bible-reading, meditation, and more. This fiery text is perfect for anyone looking to reignite their spiritual life so they can, as Watson puts it, “take Heaven by storm” and fight against evil.
In this captivating sermon, 19th-century preacher Charles Spurgeon urges believers to submit completely to the will of God. Why wouldn’t you, he argues, if you believe God is good, all-knowing, and wise?
Petty criminals Bill and Sam decide to kidnap 10-year-old Johnny for ransom money from his wealthy father. The plan turns on its head, however, when Johnny “Red Chief” Dorset decides he likes his captors better than his father.
Nineteenth-century preacher Charles Spurgeon may have surprised some when he delivered this sermon on the doctrine of election. Though predestination aligned with Spurgeon’s denominational beliefs as a Particular Baptist, it was still an unpopular sermon topic.
The great English preacher Charles Spurgeon lived in the 1800s, but his lament over the current state of spirituality sounds quite contemporary. Spurgeon saw a severe lack of spiritual knowledge among churchgoers of his day.
Surely Charles Spurgeon, one of the most prolific and important preachers of the 1800s, had plenty of reasons to be prideful. In this sermon, however, he notes that “of all creatures in the world the Christian is the last man who ought to be proud”. He provides examples from Scripture of prideful Christians whose lack of humility drove them apart and hindered their spread of the Gospel.
John Calvin describes the Catholic Church as “very miserable, and almost desperate” in this 1543 work. He appeals directly to Holy Roman Emperor King Charles V, pointing out the failures of the church and demanding change. On behalf of the reformers, Calvin details his proposed solution.
In this ambitious 18th-century sermon, Methodist theologian John Wesley covers faith of all types in a way that hadn’t been done before. He discusses the faith of everyone from heathens to deists to Protestants, drawing conclusions about each kind.
John Wesley was an 18th-century preacher and a cofounder of Methodism. In his stirring sermon “Of Hell”, Wesley dives into the theology of eternal punishment for unbelievers. He focuses on the two primary forms of punishment: that of loss and that of feeling. Wesley preaches with conviction, making it no wonder that his words were an important part of the revivalist movement that reignited the passion of formerly lukewarm Christians.
