C. H. Spurgeon, Autobiography Volume 1: The Early Years

  • Author: Charles Spurgeon

$36.00 $29.00 Save 19%

By far, the best biography of Spurgeon, being his own account! Your respect and admiration for this great preacher and man of God will grow through the reading of this hugely important work. While any autobiography lacks the continuity of a well-researched biography, there is a freshness to it that is endearing. Spurgeon relates anecdote-like memories, along with detailed descriptions of some of the more pertinent events of his life.

The chapters dealing with his conviction of sin and subsequent conversion are especially enlightening.

His wife, Susannah Spurgeon, wrote several chapters that are also included – mostly about their courtship and early wedded life.

This volume deals mainly with Spurgeon’s childhood and early ministry with the New Park Street Baptist Church, and of course includes some of Spurgeon’s own humor.
