Charles Spurgeon was the unlikeliest of candidates to win the heart of Susie Thompson. He was rural England and she was London and Paris. After seeing and hearing Charles in the pulpit for the first time, the furthest thought from her mind was marrying him. How then did Charles Spurgeon win and keep the heart of Susie Thompson?

Charles loved Susannah every minute of every day for as long as he had breath. She said that he was her ‘most precious treasure’, the ‘desire of my eyes’, and ‘my loving and dearly beloved husband’.


Ray Rhodes is the author of the upcoming book from Moody Publishers, Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon. The book will be released on September 4th.
