‘The lectures are shot through with the ready wit and wisdom of C. H. Spurgeon. . . But there is also a high seriousness in these addresses. Spurgeon’s aim was to train men to be earnest, soul-winning preachers of the Gospel. He is deeply searching in his treatment of subjects like the minister’s self watch, the call to the ministry, the life of prayer and the work of the Holy Spirit in connection with our ministry. The lectures are packed with good advice. . .’ [Guy Davies on Spurgeon’s Lectures to my Students]
