An outstanding gift book, taking the reader into the world of Spurgeon. Deeply moving and edifying, these remarkable letters, written from a suffering pastor to his congregation, abound in exhortations to godliness, zeal and prayer. They provide a unique insight into Spurgeon’s life, and into the fervent soul-winning activity which was, alongside the preaching, a leading feature of an historic Calvinistic church.
Throughout the book there are notes on Spurgeon’s ministry setting the letters in context. Several classic sermonettes written during sickness are included, along with 16 pages of colour pictures of original letters.
