Charles Haddon Spurgeon was one of the greatest preachers of all time, but he was a humble man of humble background. Saved at 15, he began preaching at the age of 17 and continued for forty years until his early death at age 57. The Baptist church he helped build in London, England, the Metropolitan Tabernacle, still stands and is still filled, today.
C.H. Spurgeon wrote many thousands of books, periodicals and essays, including the magazine, “The Sword and the Trowel,” which continues to be written and published, today.
The Metropolitan Tabernacle is a Reformed Independent Baptist Church, taken out of the Baptist Union by Pastor Spurgeon when he saw the other members of the Baptist Union becoming more and more liberal.
While we do not agree with all the points of Reformed doctrine, which is Calvinist, we have much to gain by studying the life and writings of this man who was so used of God.
