Though best remembered as the most popular preacher of the Victorian era, C. H. Spurgeon was also the founder and president of the Pastors College in London. He supervised the training of over 800 students, presided at an annual conference for ministers, and, on Friday afternoons, delivered regular lectures on every aspect of pulpit ministry.
Featuring such gems as The Ministers Fainting Fits, On the Choice of a Text, and Posture, Action, Gesture, etc., this unabridged edition of Lectures to My Students contains twenty-eight of Spurgeon's classroom discourses on homiletics and overflows with practical wisdom, discerning wit, and sage advice. Covering the call, open-air preaching, ordinary conversations, use of illustrations, and conduct outside the church, Spurgeon's words are as rich and nourishing for pastors and students today as they were more than a century ago.
This book is an excellent and useful gift for pastors, seminary students, church history enthusiasts, and even collectors and readers of classic Victorian literature.
