This collection of C. H. Spurgeon’s travel letters offer a rare insight into a different side of the famed preacher.

Of the many telling phrases C. H. Spurgeon gave the world, one speaks to the way he, and his contemporaries, greatly valued letters, or what he called “gifts of the pen.” 


He lived in a golden age of letter–writing, and helped to make it so. 


The best letters, he knew, are written with caring reflection, love of the written word, wit, and a vivid sense of place. His travel letters model these gifts. 


His love of nature, history, culture, and art live—and breathe—in these pages. 


Rest and recreation, on holiday, when he could follow these interests, were meaningful, renewing gifts from God. He cherished them, and needed them.  


They lend a special, one–of–a–kind voice to this book.


With a painter’s gifts, set amid the countryside of England, or places of Europe, Spurgeon’s Travel Letters are eloquent, and many times moving. His “gifts of the pen” shine in them. 


At long last, they have a place well–deserved, a place all their own.


Now, we ourselves may travel with Spurgeon—discovering the world that he knew. 


And we may bless God for the privilege given in these letters.

About 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 Prince of Preachers’ sense of humor comes through loud and clear … as he meticulously noted the beauty of The Artist’s created world everywhere he traveled.

Mary K. Mohler, Director, Seminary Wives Institute, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

In a day when pastors are burned out and Christians are weary, these letters are a reminder that rest is God’s good gift. In his travels, Spurgeon models for us how we can enjoy God’s world in our rest with childlike faith and wonder, and so, be energized and equipped for faithful service.

Geoffrey Chang, Assistant Professor of Historical Theology and Curator of the Spurgeon Library, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Kansas City, Missouri
