In Lectures to My Students, Spurgeon has written the ultimate how-to guide for preachers.
This volume covers the basics of preaching, such as the nuts-and-bolts of choosing a text and composing a sermons.
Spurgeon, the master orator, also advises students on the mechanics of spontaneous sermons and impromptu speech, admitting that such a talent takes time and effort. He also laments that pastors often find themselves out of place—“speckled birds,” in his words—unable to conduct themselves in ordinary social circumstances.
This practical guide will be of enormous benefit to pastors and preachers.
Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) was a British minister known as the “Prince of Preacher’s” whose writings are considered classics and are still in high-demand today. He preached to over 10 million people in his lifetime and published thousands of sermons, besides starting a College for Pastors as well as orphanages for boys and girls.
