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.
"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." - Jeremy Walker, Pastor, Maidenbower Baptist Church, UK
"… brilliantly focusses on ten key moments, convictions really, that shaped the larger–than–life Charles Haddon Spurgeon. These convictions steeled Spurgeon to weather controversy, depression, and setbacks. Through it all, Spurgeon’s exuberant love for God, the gospel, and for the church shines through." - Stephen J. Nichols, President, Reformation Bible College, CAO Ligonier Ministries, Sanford, Florida
