TIM CURNOW ET AL
Erroll Hulse, Tim Curnow, Erroll Hulse, David Kingdon, and Geoff Thomas have written seven chapters on the life and ministry of Spurgeon, particularly focusing on how it speaks to the church today. There are chapters on the famous Downgrade Controversy, Spurgeon’s involvement in politics, Spurgeon’s development as a preacher, Spurgeon’s ministry and his social concerns, and others. Foreword by Dr. Timothy George.
Of all the great preachers of Victorian Britain, Charles Haddon Spurgeon continues to exercise a profound influence over one hundred years after his death in 1892. His sermons and other publications are being reprinted and now circulate even more widely than is his lifetime.
This collection of essays highlights various aspects of his remarkable lie and ministry. Spurgeon emerges as a person of warm humanity, a passionate evangelist, a controversial Mr. Valiant for Truth, and a social activist of decided political convictions.
At point after point, Spurgeon yet speaks to today’s Church, calling us to a new commitment to the gospel of grace. As Dr. Timothy George says in his foreword, “In our own era of compromise and concession, we need urgently to heed Spurgeon’s appeal. The price of theological integrity, like that of liberty, is eternal vigilance.”
