Details

All of Spurgeon’s works are deeply personal, yet the volumes of his autobiography retell the story of his life from start to finish with more detail than his sermons, lectures, articles, and volumes of his other writings. Charles H. Spurgeon’s Autobiography, Compiled from His Diary, Letters, and Records is devoted to the complete biographical account of his life and mission. Some of the content is reproduced from Spurgeon’s sermons, manuscripts, books, and other content, while the rest contains explanatory remarks from the editors, including Spurgeon’s wife. This 4-volume biography tells the story of Spurgeon’s childhood, his life at Stambourne, his education and upbringing, and his historic preaching career. It includes hundreds of illustrations, letters, poetry, and other material, making it the first and most detailed complete biographical account of Charles Spurgeon.

Author Bio

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, 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.).
