A Fly on the Nose
52 Spurgeon Stories for Children
This 3rd book began, as the previous two, as a series of children’s talks based on the life of C. H. Spurgeon. Some of the stories are sad, some are funny, but each one teaches a specific truth from the Bible.
This book, a sequel to How A Spider Saved a Man’s Life (Vol 1) and The Milk’s Been Stolen Again (Vol 2), began as a series of children’s talks based on the life of C.H. Spurgeon, each one aiming to teach a particular truth rooted in Scripture.
Spurgeon himself had a great love for children. He founded an orphanage, and regularly visited the children there. They would throng around him and he knew virtually all of them by name. On one occasion, when Spurgeon was in Menton in France, a boy in the orphanage died.
Spurgeon, in response, wrote to all the boys in the orphanage, “I cannot bear to think of one boy going from the orphanage to hell; that would be terrible indeed! I often think about you all. I want to see you all happy here and hereafter.”
This book is written with the hope and prayer that children may be led by the Lord to find salvation in Christ, and learn truths from the Bible that will help them to live for His glory.
