Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) is a name with which every Christian should be familiar. His ministry reached far beyond his London congregation. Not a man to water down his message to attract hearers, his doctrinally rich sermons – as preached and published – provide the meat of biblical Christianity to rich and poor alike.

Spurgeon’s was a life of purpose. He was a man of prayer, but also of intense and varied activity – a man who had a keen social concern, as well as a desire to see churches planted and young men trained for the gospel ministry.

He was humble and warm-spirited, a man who even in times of suffering pointed people to Jesus Christ. His resolute stand for the authority of the Bible in an age of compromise makes him an example for today’s church.

Arnold Dallimore’s concise and sympathetic biography will be an excellent introduction for those who know little or perhaps nothign of Spurgeon, and will also stir the interest of all who value the lessons of a unique and faithful ministry.
