Book Review: Spurgeon on the Christian Life

Crossway’s book Spurgeon on the Christian Life by Michael Reeves is a superb read into the life and theology of the Prince of Preachers.

Like other books in the series, edited by Stephen Nichols, Reeves introduces the man and theologian, Charles H. Spurgeon, by giving a background on his life and what he meant to his community. He describes Spurgeon as a man who was full of life and passionate for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The remainder of the book goes into the theology and ministry methods and principles of Spurgeon. Topics that are discussed include, but are not limited to, The Bible, Calvinism, Preaching, Baptism, The Cross, Sin, Grace, Prayer, Suffering and even Depression.

Reeves also does a good job to point out that even though Spurgeon is a crowned theologian in Baptist Denominations, he shold not be overlooked by everyone who follows Christ.

I recommend this book highly and it would be a great addition to any library.

I received this book free from the publisher in exhange for a fair and honest review.
