Charles Spurgeon: A Biography (Charles Spurgeon : Une biographie)
It is not easy to portray in a few words a character as astonishing, colorful and gigantic as Charles Spurgeon. Despite the absence of television and modern media in his day, he is a giant, even when compared to the many current stars who occupy the field of the "evangelical" world.
This biography stands out, however, because, beyond the figures, behind the huge crowds, after the preaching, it reveals the leader of men, the giant in prayer, the child's heart that was really Charles Spurgeon. . But, even deeper than all this, it shows the sovereign and almighty God of Spurgeon, the one who kept his servant in total submission before using him with great power and efficiency.
Thousands, maybe even millions, heard Spurgeon and received eternal life in his day. Will our generation shut its ears? Spurgeon preached one message, one God - may his times and blessings not be unique!
