‘This sparkling and startling address is perhaps the most rousing call to gospel arms you will ever encounter. If you can read it without being profoundly stirred, I strongly suggest you seek urgent spiritual help.’ – Jonathan Stephen, Principal, Wales Evangelical School of Theology, Bridgend, Wales
Spurgeon gave The Greatest Fight in the World almost as a last word to impart to his followers in the faith his belief in the armoury of the Scripture, the armour of the church, and the strength that God gives us to fight. Be encouraged and empowered to take up your sword and join the fray of the Christian life. This powerful advice to Christians is a battle charge for living the faithful life whether in Spurgeon’s day or in ours.
C. H. Spurgeon
C. H. Spurgeon, the great Victorian preacher, was one of the most influential people of the second half of the 19th Century. At the heart of his desire to preach was a fierce love of people, a desire that meant he did not neglect his pastoral ministry.
The clarity and power of the themes... were timely then, and they seem just as timely today.

Always a wordsmith, Mr. Spurgeon leverages the power of language in this volume for spiritual motivation like nowhere else.

There was a mouse who gathered around a number of mice and said to them, "Let me commend to you an elephant. What seems a tree trunk on our right is actually one of his legs and he has three others just like this. His nose from top to bottom is as long as thirty mice end to end. His skin is so tough that we'd break our teeth trying to gnaw it. When he makes a noise it shatters your ear drums. He is so tall I cannot see the top of his head. So be aware of this extraordinary being; be respectful and get out of his way when he walks by because we are so tiny he won't notice us. But he will never knowingly hurt us. He feeds on grass and leaves. He is benign and good. This is the elephant, the king of the jungle." So it is when any preacher today is asked to commend a book of Charles Haddon Spurgeon's. A mouse is going to commend an elephant. We will add nothing at all to his reputation. He is simply utterly immense in his preaching, his energy, the size of his heart, his generosity and humour, his love for God, his discernment and wisdom. Read anything of his, and these addresses towards the end of his life are as good a place to begin to learn about one of God's true giants as any of his writing, and never stop reading him.
