Tom Nettles examines the life of one of the world’s most famous preachers. He isolates key convictions that appear in Spurgeon’s life either before or immediately after his conversion, and traces them through his life as he develops into the charming, interesting, confident, humble, spiritual–minded man and pastor whose work and witness dominated evangelicalism in the last half of the nineteenth century.
Tom J. Nettles
… perhaps the most, well–rounded treatment of Charles Spurgeon that has been achieved in Spurgeonic literature. A must read not only for pastors but for all Christians in learning how to love and serve Christ with unflinching fidelity.

There is depth in the study, and there is breadth, and—perhaps most preciously—there is a happy recognition of the grace of God, the beauty of Christ, and the power of the Spirit, upon which Spurgeon’s ministry depended and in which he himself delighted.
Pastor, Maidenbower Baptist Church, UK

… shows how the remarkable fruitfulness of Spurgeon’s ministry developed from tiny seeds sown in his childhood and youth.
