About the Author
C. H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) the great Victorian preacher, was one of the most influential people in the world during the second half of the 19th century. The text of his Sunday sermons were published all over England in newspapers on Monday. Converted in 1850 at age 16, he immediately manifested unusual gifts and preached his first sermon only a year later at age 17. In 1854, he was called to be pastor of New Park Street Baptist Church, where he continued for six years until the crowds attending required the construction of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, where he served as pastor for the next 32 years.
At the heart of his desire to preach was a fierce love of people, a desire that meant he did not neglect his pastoral ministry. The Pastor’s College was founded in 1857, at which thousands of men were trained for the Christian ministry and sent all over the world. He was married to his wife Susannah and they had two sons. Spurgeon was well-known also for numerous books and published editions of his sermons, among them the vast and rich seven-volume The Treasury of David, the most comprehensive commentary on the Psalms ever published.
