Sermon Illustrations from Charles Spurgeon

Part of what gained Charles Spurgeon his reputation as the “Prince of Preachers” was his skill as a master illustrator. While he preached all his sermons over 100 years ago, many of his similes and stories are as fresh today as when he told them. Who can forget, for example, his comparison of the gospel to a lion in a cage, ready to conquer once it is let out?

In this book you’ll find 300 of the best illustrations Spurgeon used in his sermons. These have not previously appeared in the other Spurgeon illustration collections Feathers for Arrows, Barbed Arrows from the Quiver of C. H. Spurgeon, or Flashes of Thought. Instead, they have been carefully selected from his volumes of sermons.

These illustrations are also labeled with preaching themes and Scripture references, making them easy to find in Logos Bible Software. With 300 Sermon Illustrations from Charles Spurgeon, you’ll be inspired in your preaching by a master at driving the truths of Scripture into the hearts of his hearers

Charles Spurgeon

C. H. Spurgeon (1834–1892) is one of the church’s most famous preachers and Christianity’s most prolific writers. He converted to Christianity in 1850 at a small Methodist chapel and began his own ministry immediately, preaching more than 500 sermons by the age of 20. Logos has collected his sermons in The Complete Spurgeon Sermon Collection (63 vols.).

Spurgeon was the pastor of New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle). Many of his sermons were published each week and regularly sold more than 25,000 copies in 20 languages. Spurgeon is still known as the “Prince of Preachers” by Reformed Christians and Baptists.

Spurgeon founded the Pastor’s College (now Spurgeon’s College) in London. Dwight L. Moody was deeply influenced by Spurgeon’s preaching, and founded the Moody Bible Institute after seeing Spurgeon’s work at the Pastor’s College in London.

By the time of Spurgeon’s death in 1892, he had preached almost 3,600 sermons and published, also under the name Charles H. Spurgeon, 49 volumes of commentaries, along with numerous books of sayings, devotions, and more. The Charles Spurgeon Collection (149 vols.) contains over 3,550 sermons from this gifted speaker and leader and his most-loved works like The Treasury of David, Lectures to My Students, The Sword and Trowel, and dozens of other volumes. Also available from Logos is Spurgeon Commentary: Galatians, and the Spurgeon Sermon Upgrade Collection (2 vols.).
