spurgeon1Spurgeon – A New Biography – Arnold Dallimore

Using the two-volume autobiography and other dependable sources, Dallimore has produced a much more concise narrative of Spurgeon's life. He has also set out to understand and present something of the inner man - Spurgeon in his praying, his sufferings and depressions, his weakness and strengths. This volume will meet the need of those completely ignorant of Spurgeon and his vast achievements, but will also stir the interest of those who value his unique ministry.

forgottonspurgeon1The Forgotten Spurgeon - Iain Murray

This book traces the main lines of Spurgeon's spiritual thought in connection with the three great controversies in his ministry-the first was his stand against the diluted Gospel fashionable in the London to which the young preacher came in the 1850's; the second, the famous "Baptismal Regeneration" debate of 1864; lastly, the lacerating Down-grade controversy of 1887-1891 when Spurgeon sought to awaken Christians to the danger of the Church "being buried beneath the boiling mud-showers of modern heresy."

freeindeed1Free Indeed - Heroes of Black Christian History - Mark Sidwell

What do a musician, a pioneer, a teacher, a dyer, a warehouse worker, a carpenter, an African prince and a janitor have in common? All were leaders who at great personal cost left a legacy for Christ in their communities, the world and the church of Christ. Most grew up in slavery and poverty. Many educated themselves, and even taught themselves to read. Some became missionaries in the land of their ancestry or to native Americans. Others pioneered denominations still in existence. Some wrote hymns still enjoyed throughout Christendom today. Several saw great revivals. All experienced the double hardship of religious persecution combined with racial discrimination. All were African Americans. (Bob Jones Press)
