Charles Haddon Spurgeon

1834-1892

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

We have more writings by Charles Spurgeon than any other Christian in history. 

At the age of 20 he became pastor of the New Park Street Church. At that time it had only 232 members.  

As his fame grew among the Christian community of England, the number of people who came to listen to him speak in different venues exceeded 10,000 at times. 

Those in attendance sometimes included members of Parliament and the Royal Family. 

Many of the great theologians and preachers of the last century such as D. L. Moody, J. Hudson Taylor, J. C. Ryle, F. B. Meyer, the Bonar brothers, George Müller, and William Robertson Nicoll have said that Spurgeon greatly influenced their spiritual lives.   ____________________

Long before the megachurch, nearly 6,000 people crowded every service to hear Charles Spurgeon.  Discover why his masterful preaching astonished his era.

...the foremost secret that empowered Charles Spurgeon was his devotion to prayer.

Considered by his peers then and now as "The Prince of Preachers," Charles Spurgeon built London's Metropolitan Tabernacle into the world's largest independent congregation during the nineteenth century.  While many factors have been highlighted that help explain the effectiveness of Spurgeon's preaching, the foremost secret that empowered Charles Spurgeon was his devotion to prayer.

...Spurgeon would take them to the basement prayer room where people were always on their knees interceding for the church.

When people would walk through the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Spurgeon would take them to the basement prayer room where people were always on their knees interceding for the church.  Then Spurgeon would declare, "Here is the powerhouse of this church."  That statement is backed by the amazing number of sermons that Spurgeon preached on prayer.

You will be inspired and challenged in your prayer life, especially if you experience struggles in prayer.

Spurgeon was a great believer and teacher in passionate, Holy Spirit-directed prayer.  His word pictures of the majestic throne of grace that God calls believers to be privileged to come before is well worth the price of the book alone.  You will be inspired and challenged in your prayer life, especially if you experience struggles in prayer. ________________________

Tell others about Jesus like Charles Spurgeon did:

Though not all Christians are called to full-time Christian Ministry, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________________
