Charles Spurgeon, perhaps the most prolific of all preachers, faced adversity from many places. Ridiculed and criticized by preachers from across the Christian spectrum, suffering from gout, caring for his invalid wife, battling depression, and carrying a burden of personal tragedy, Spurgeon refused to cave to the overwhelming adversity in his life. In this short biography of Spurgeon, John Piper demonstrates how Spurgeon, in all his trials, never lost sight of the absolute sovereignty and ultimate triumph of Christ.
