“His eyes never slumber, and His hands never rest; His heart never ceases to beat with love, and His shoulders are never weary of carrying His people's burdens. ...Wherever Christ is, there is God; and whatever Christ does is the act of the Most High. ... Happy are we who belong to such a shepherd, whose humanity communes with us, and whose divinity protects us. Let us worship and bow down before Him.” —Charles Spurgeon
CHARLES HADDON SPURGEON (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) remains highly influential among Christians of various denominations, among whom he is known as the “Prince of Preachers.” It is estimated that in his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to around 10,000,000 people. Spurgeon was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London for 38 years. He was a prolific author of many types of works including sermons, an autobiography, commentaries, books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns and more. Many sermons were transcribed as he spoke and were translated into many languages during his lifetime. Spurgeon produced powerful sermons of penetrating thought and precise exposition. His oratory skills held his listeners spellbound in the Metropolitan Tabernacle and many Christians have discovered Spurgeon's messages to be among the best in Christian literature. He suffered ill health toward the end of his life, afflicted by a combination of rheumatism, gout and Bright's disease and often recuperated at Menton, near Nice, France, where he died on 31 January 1892.
