The story of Spurgeon’s life, largely in his own words, from the events of childhood and youth and through the period of his mature ministry. C.H. Spurgeon Autobiography is an inspiring record of a Christian life which continues to be of blessing for so many.

‘In his heart’, wrote Archibald Brown, ‘Jesus stood unapproached, unrivalled. He worshipped Him; he adored Him. He was our Lord’s delighted captive.’ Whatever Spurgeon did he did it for Christ. None can read these pages without being indelibly impressed with the author’s words, ‘there is no time for serving the Lord like the very earliest days of youth.’
