About Charles Spurgeon

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was born in Kelvedon, Essex, England on June 19, 1834. He converted to Christianity in 1850 at a small Methodist chapel, to which he detoured during a snowstorm. While there, he heard a sermon on Isaiah 45:22 and was saved—“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth, for I am God, and there is none else.” He began his own ministry of preaching and teaching immediately, and preached more than 500 sermons by the age of 20.

In 1854, at 19 years of age, Spurgeon began preaching at the New Park Street Chapel in London. He was appointed to a six month trial position, which he requested be cut to three months should the congregation dislike his preaching. He gained instant fame, however, and the church grew from 232 members to more than five thousand at the end of his pastorate. Many of his sermons were published each week and regularly sold more than 25,000 copies in 20 languages. Throughout his ministry, Spurgeon estimated that he preached to more than 10,000,000 people. 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.

Spurgeon read six books per week during his adult life, and read Pilgrim’s Progress more than 100 times. In addition to his studying and preaching, Spurgeon also founded the Pastor’s College (now Spurgeon’s College), various orphanages and schools, mission chapels, and numerous other social institutions.

Charles Spurgeon suffered from poor health throughout his life. He died on January 31, 1892, and was buried in London.

The Apostolic Fathers in English

  • Author: Rick Brannan
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

The “Apostolic Fathers” wrote what has become some of the most important literature in the early church—letters and epistolary documents, homilies and theological tracts, documents on church order, and apocalyptic literature. In fact, some texts came close to inclusion in the New Testament canon. Tertullian regarded Hermas as Scripture, Irenaeus treated 1 Clement as canonical, and Origen regarded the Didache as inspired. Barnabas and Hermas were included in Codex Sinaiticus and 1 and 2 Clement were included in Codex Alexandrinus. The near-canonical status of the writings of the Apostolic Fathers in the early church makes their importance for modern study undisputed.

Apostolic Fathers Reverse Interlinear

  • Author: Rick Brannan
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

The Lexham Apostolic Fathers Reverse Interlinear provides the English and original language text together. It also provides valuable scholarly information about how various words, phrases, and idioms are translated across a larger corpus. This makes direct study of a specific word or phrase easy, with original language tools only a click away.

The Apostolic Fathers Greek-English Interlinear

  • General Editor and Translator: Rick Brannan
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2010

Those known as “Apostolic Fathers” wrote what has become some of the most important literature in the early church—letters and epistolary documents, homilies and theological tracts, documents on church order, and apocalyptic literature. In fact, some texts came close to inclusion in the New Testament canon. Tertullian regarded Hermas as Scripture, Irenaeus treated 1 Clement as canonical, and Origen regarded the Didache as inspired. Barnabas and Hermas were included in Codex Sinaiticus and 1 Clement and 2 Clement were included in Codex Alexandrinus. The near-canonical status of the writings of the Apostolic Fathers in the early church makes their importance for modern study undisputed.

Following the model of other interlinears produced by Lexham Press (Hebrew Bible, New Testament, Septuagint), The Apostolic Fathers Greek–English Interlinear presents two levels of interlinear translation. The first is the lexical value, which is a gloss of the lexical or dictionary form of the word. The second is the English literal translation, a contextually sensitive gloss of the inflected form of the word. The difference in these glosses is subtle, but powerful. The first gloss answers the question, “What does this word mean?” The second gloss answers the question, “What does this word mean here?”

In addition to the interlinear translations, direct links to Louw and Nida's Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament based on Semantic Domains are provided for every Greek word, except for those words not present in the Greek New Testament. These links are context-sensitive and connect directly to the appropriate Louw and Nida article. Those familiar with Louw and Nida's lexicon know that one Greek word may have many different entries in the lexicon, one for each semantic sense. These Louw-Nida references jump to the appropriate article when there is more than one option—providing a contextually-appropriate lexicon definition for the word under study. These links also allow for searching the Apostolic Fathers text by Louw-Nida domain and article information.

This new interlinear from Lexham Press makes the Greek text of the Apostolic Fathers more accessible and useful for a larger audience. It features a literal translation for each word, a grammatically-informed context sensitive gloss, and other interlinear features. It also includes morphological tagging, idioms and cross-references, and lexical, text-critical, and translational notes.

Historic Creeds and Confessions

  • Editor: Rick Brannan
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2001

The history of the Church is filled with times of great theological debate. From the beginning, the Church has had to come together in light of theological controversy and form a body of teaching that would be universally accepted and practiced amongst all who confess Christ as Lord. This collection of Historic Creeds and Confessions contain the outworkings of godly men who came together and drafted what they considered to be the heart of Biblical truth.

The documents contained in the Historic Creeds and Confessions are foundational to basic Christian doctrine and are, for the most part, claimed across denominational boundaries. These classic documents are not simply of historical value, but they are immensely valuable for believers today to read, consider, and understand. They deal in real terms with what it means to live as a Christian. They struggle to quantify complex and confusing ideas in clear, undeniable terminology.

Included in this collection are:

Historic Creeds

  • The Apostles' Creed
  • The Nicene Creed
  • The Symbol of Chalcedon
  • The Athanasian Creed

Historic Confessions and Statements of Faith

  • The Belgic Confession
  • The Heidelberg Catechism
  • The Canons of Dordt

Reformed Dogmatics: Theology Proper

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Translator: Richard B. Gaffin
  • Edition: 1st English edition
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2013

Volume one of Vos' Reformed Dogmatics covers the Doctrine of God, including his knowability, his names, being, and character. Vos discusses the Trinity and its evidence in Scripture and its theological development in the church fathers. Also examined are God's acts and our knowledge of them, creation, predestination, and the providence of God.

Reformed Dogmatics: Anthropology

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Translator: Richard B. Gaffin
  • Edition: 1st English edition
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2013

The second volume of Reformed Dogmatics examines anthropology, with a focus on the nature of humanity, sin, and the covenant of grace. He begins his examination of human nature with the question: What does scripture say about the nature of humanity? From there, Vos examines the relationship between the body and the soul. In hamartiology, Vos surveys various philosophical perspectives on sin and investigates the claims of Scripture. The volume concludes with a lengthy study of God's covenants with humanity through the Old Testament culminating with the New Covenant.

Reformed Dogmatics: Christology

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Translator: Richard B. Gaffin
  • Edition: 1st English edition
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2013

The focus of volume three is Christology. It covers the Person of Christ which includes his two natures and the incarnation, and then also the work of Christ: his death and resurrection, the nature of his sacrifice, and his office as priest and mediator.

Reformed Dogmatics: Soteriology

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Translator: Richard B. Gaffin
  • Edition: 1st English edition
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2013

Volume four covers Soteriology continues and builds on Vos' examination of the work of Christ. He discusses the nature of salvation, evidence of salvation in the Holy Spirit and the Church, and the order of salvation (the Ordo Salutis).

Reformed Dogmatics: Ecclesiology, the Means of Grace, Eschatology

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Translator: Richard B. Gaffin
  • Edition: 1st English edition
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2013

The fifth and final volume of Reformed Dogmatics presents Geerhardus Vos' views on Ecclesiology, the Sacraments and Eschatology. He deals with the nature of the church and its purpose. Vos' discussion of the Means of Grace goes beyond merely the sacraments of baptism and the Eucharist into issues of the Gospel Proclamation as well. Lastly, he concludes with his examination of eschatology both in the sense of "things to come" and also in the sense of the current state of the church as existing in the "already, but not yet."

Augustine versus Luther on Sin, Sexuality, and Salvation

  • Author: Wendy L. Widder
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2013
  • Pages: 72

Augustine of Hippo and Martin Luther had absolutely foundational influences over the thought, practice, and development of Christian theology. Yet somehow the work of these two theological giants has produced out-of-balance perspectives within Protestantism on marriage, sexuality, and singleness—thanks to Augustine’s view of sexuality as shameful and Luther’s exaltation of marriage as the sure way to holiness.

Augustine versus Luther on Sin, Sexuality, and Salvation analyzes how the theologians’ views on sin and salvation affected their divergent perspectives on marriage and sexuality. Their drastically different conclusions are still evident in Christian attitudes toward marriage and singleness today.

Let Go and Let God? A Survey and Analysis of Keswick Theology

  • Author: Andrew David Naselli
  • Foreword: Thomas R. Schreiner
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 459

Keswick theology—one of the most significant strands of second-blessing theology—assumes that Christians experience two “blessings.” The first is getting “saved,” and the second is getting serious. The change is dramatic: from a defeated life to a victorious life, from a lower life to a higher life, from a shallow life to a deeper life, from a fruitless life to a more abundant life, from being “carnal” to being “spiritual,” from merely having Jesus as your Savior to making Jesus your Master. So how do people experience this second blessing? Through surrender and faith: “Let go and let God.”

Second-blessing theology is pervasive because countless people have propagated it in so many ways, especially in sermons and devotional writings. It is appealing because Christians struggle with sin and want to be victorious in that struggle—now. Second-blessing theology offers a quick fix to this struggle, and its shortcut to instant victory appeals to genuine longings for holiness.

This book’s thesis is simple: Keswick theology is not biblically sound. This book tells the story of where Keswick theology comes from, explains what exactly it is, and then refutes it while building a case for a biblical alternative. No other book surveys the history and theology of second-blessing theology like this and then analyzes it from a soteriologically Reformed perspective.

The Lion of Princeton: B.B. Warfield as Apologist and Theologian

  • Author: Kim Riddlebarger
  • Series: Studies in Historical and Systematic Theology
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2014

There’s little doubt about the impact B.B. Warfield has had on American Christianity. Some hail him for his apologetic and polemical skills, praising him as a defender of Reformed orthodoxy. Others view him with less regard—as too focused on the role of reason in faith and too devoted to the inerrancy of Scripture. But all agree that he is a man with whom one must reckon.

Despite the resurging interest in his life and work, Warfield’s views are often misunderstood. In The Lion of Princeton, Kim Riddlebarger investigates Warfield’s theological, apologetical, and polemical writings, bringing clarity to the confusion that surrounds this key figure of the Princeton tradition.

Riddlebarger provides a biographical overview of Warfield’s life and traces the growing appreciation for Warfield’s thought by contemporary Reformed thinkers. Furthermore, he evaluates the fundamental structures in Warfield’s overall theology and examines Warfield’s work in the field of systematic theology.

Warfield’s theological heirs revere his memory, while his critics continue to find his work misguided and his legacy troubling. “The Lion of Princeton,” as he was known, was certainly up for the challenge. We must therefore take a fresh look at the work of this great scholar, who was in many ways the most significant American apologist, polemicist, and theologian of his age.

Kim Riddlebarger (PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) is senior pastor of Christ Reformed Church in Anaheim, CA, and has been a visiting professor of systematic theology at Westminster Seminary California. He is author of A Case for Amillennialism and The Man of Sin, and a co-host of the White Horse Inn radio program.
