Description

by Charles Spurgeon
Publisher: Fox River Press
“Spurgeon was the master of the pithy quote. In fact, no author I have ever read is as quotable as Spurgeon. His published sermons as well as his books are a fertile source for ideas, expressions, illustrations, and axioms that help make biblical truth clear. I have on my shelves several anthologies of Spurgeon quotations. But none is as exhaustive, as carefully assembled, or as useful as this massive collection…”—from the foreword by Dr. John MacArthur

Exploring the Mind and Heart of the Prince of Preachers is a compendium of over 5,000 illustrations and anecdotes sorted under more than 1,000 topical headings drawn from the sermons and writings of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the most prolific Christian writer of all time.

This book contains:

  • Over 5,000 anecdotes and verbal illustrations, more than twice the size of other Spurgeon collections, all in Spurgeon’s original and unabridged language.
  • Quotes drawn from Spurgeon’s written works as well as his spoken words. This includes the entire 63 volume Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit series as well as 30 additional books he wrote.
  • Over 1,000 headings and sub-topics.
  • A synonym-grouping appendix with forty-four main headings, so you can easily search for related topics.
  • Three separate sections, with Section One containing material of general interest and Section Two containing material of special interest to preachers, teachers, and ministry leaders. Section Three contains salvation illustrations and anecdotes.
  • A blend of one-liners, longer anecdotes, and extended illustrations.
  • A comprehensive reference system documenting the source materials, for additional reading and study of Spurgeon’s original writings.

C. H. Spurgeon’s decades of speaking and transcription yielded what is probably the largest collection of written sermons in Christian history. Spurgeon was also a prolific writer: by most estimates he wrote over one hundred and fifty additional books during his lifetime. Many of these books have passed into antiquity, but several dozen titles remain in print today as a testimony to his enduring popularity.

The bulk of the extracts contained in this volume are taken from the complete sixty-three volume set of Spurgeon’s sermons, originally printed by Passmore and Alabaster and more currently reprinted by Pilgrim Publications. Additional quotes and illustrations are taken from thirty of Spurgeon’s most popular books.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1894) converted to Christianity at the age of fifteen. By the time he was twenty-two, he was the most popular preacher of his time. He frequently spoke to crowds numbering over 10,000 in the days before electronic amplification. A prolific writer, many of Spurgeon's works remain in print to this day.
