Lectures to My Students

Charles Haddon Spurgeon
In Stock

  • Though best remembered as the most popular preacher of the Victorian era, C. H. Spurgeon was also 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" "Posture, Action, Gesture, etc." and "On the Choice of a Text," this unabridged edition of 28 of Spurgeon's classroom discourses on homiletics overflows with practical wisdom, discerning wit, and sage advice. Covering the call, open-air preaching, ordinary conversations, using 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.

    • Our Public Prayer
    • On Spiritualizing
    • The Blind Eye and the Deaf Ear
    • On Conversion as Our Aim
