Mini-Review of Spurgeon’s Sermons Vols. 1-10

Spurgeon’s Sermons Vol. 1-10 by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I honestly don’t even know where to start on this review. Reading through all of these volumes took me around eight months, and I don’t regret it at all. The power and passion in these sermons is immense, as well as the wisdom and Biblical knowledge. While I don’t agree with everything Spurgeon said (there were a few weird lines about evolution/age of the earth, etc.), there was so much goodness that I could easily overlook a few differences. The love this man had for Christ was enormous, and just reading these sermons showed a man of God who truly loved and knew Jesus so deeply. He preached of the love of Jesus and the power of His Blood so often!

There was also stunning honesty as Spurgeon dealt with his own failures and his battles with depression. He never pulled punches in telling his congregation that Jesus is enough for everything that we could face, that Jesus saves and keeps His children completely and to the uttermost. These sermons weren’t a righteous man looking down his nose at his congregation, but rather a heartfelt, loving plea from a sinner to even the worst of sinners, because Jesus is the Savior, the loving Savior of the vilest. Spurgeon realized how vital the Gospel is, and he preached this Gospel with a desperation, like a man trying to save another from a burning building. I absolutely loved reading these sermons, and it’s evident that the Lord worked through Spurgeon mightily. To God be the glory for these wonderful sermons, and I am so thankful I had to chance to read them. I was very blessed by these sermons, and I would recommend these books to any Christian.

I wrote a review a bit ago, but to be honest, it wasn’t that exciting of a review, so I’m not going to post it here. Instead, I’m going to share a few excerpts from the book that really struck me.
