Book Description

C.H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) is best-remembered today for the remarkable ministry he exercised in London during the Victorian era. His influence was incalculable. Thousands listened to his preaching every week. While hundreds of thousands throughout the world later read his sermons in published form. A man of great natural gifts, charm and wit, Spurgeon’s master passion was evident in everything he did – to preach Jesus Christ to all as the only Saviour. But as early as 1855 this brought him into a serious and prolonged doctrinal controversy with Hyper-Calvinism By tracing this conflict, exploring the issues involved in it and showing what was at stake in them, Iain Murray underlines the contemporary relevance and importance of sharing Spurgeon’s convictions.
