By J. C. Carlile

A great Tabernacle was once built for a great preacher.

Such were Charles Haddon Spurgeon’s preaching gifts that London’s Metropolitan Tabernacle—a structure accommodating 6,000 people—was built just for him. The great orator and preacher continued filling the pews until his death thirty years later, while also founding there a pastor’s college and an orphanage, which both still exist.

…Spurgeon delivered sermons that are eminently readable today, and still…in print over a century later.

Rejecting the Congregationalist theology of his father, Spurgeon was baptized as an adult, and soon after discovered his God-given gift in a pastorate near Cambridge, England. A powerful evangelist with a natural and appealing sense of humor, Spurgeon delivered sermons that are eminently readable today, and still, remarkably, in print over a century later.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon remains a role model for seminarians and seasoned pastors alike, and an imagined fiery presence in the pulpit through his inspired writings.
