How a Spider Saved a Man’s Life
And 51 other great Spurgeon Stories
This book began life as a series of children’s talks based on the life of C.H. Spurgeon, each one meant to teach a truth of Scripture to the very young.
Spurgeon 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. Great read-aloud stories for children 12 and under.
