Charles Haddon (C.H.) Spurgeon (June 19, 1834 -January 31, 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher who remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations, among whom he is still known as the "Prince of Preachers". This despite the fact that he was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition, defending the Church in agreement with the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith understanding, against liberalism and pragmatic theological tendencies even in his day.
In his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to around 10,000,000 people, often up to 10 times each week at different places. His sermons have been translated into many languages. Spurgeon was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London for 38 years. He was part of several controversies with the Baptist Union of Great Britain and later had to leave that denomination. In 1857, he started a charity organization called Spurgeon's which now works globally. He also founded Spurgeon's College, which was named after him posthumously.
Spurgeon was a prolific author of many types of works including sermons, an autobiography, a commentary, books on prayer, a devotional, a magazine, poetry, hymnist, and more. Many sermons were transcribed as he spoke and were translated into many languages during his lifetime.

A little problem, but a big blessing still!
A great price for an even greater book,
Only problem is that a few of the chapters are missing the ending line, so the end is cut off abruptly, please correct this if you can.
this is a book that everyone needs to read, I've learned so much from it.
This particular version is not accurate. Sometimes blending Morning and Evening, other times not quoting sentences accurately, but leaving half sentences...
And it's Charles Haden Spurgen (not Charlos). At least spell it right if your gonna charge a dollar for it. Otherwise many include all of the book. Looks like you threw this together in ten minutes. Update and I will rate higher.
