|About the Book|
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) was Englands best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1854, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 20, became pastor of Londons famed New Park Street Church (formerly pastored by the famous Baptist theologian John Gill). The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey Music Hall. In these venues Spurgeon frequently preached to audiences numbering more than 10,000—all in the days before electronic amplification. In 1861 the congregation moved permanently to the newly constructed Metropolitan Tabernacle.Spurgeons printed works are voluminous, and those provided here are only a sampling of his best-known works, including his magnum opus, The Treasury of David.
