The Soul-Winner (Gagner des âmes, oui mais comment ?)
The conquest of souls! What power, expectation and distant horizons in this expression! The Lord Jesus has given this mission to his Church, and every child of God is burning to commit to it. This conquest revolutionized the world in the first century AD, and many times since. She sent great missionaries all over the world. And it is again the conquest of souls that makes the heart of every true servant of God vibrate.
What can I do, little me, weak and ready to faint at the slightest growl of the opponent? Can even one who has some strength give birth to a dead soul to spiritual life? Charles Spurgeon, mighty soul winner in the 19th century, draws the marvelous union of human helplessness with divine omnipotence in the salvation of souls.
For him, this work is not the business of professionals, but it forms the heart of the mission of every Christian. It shows how to grasp this "evangelical mission" head-on in the various aspects of the life of the Church.
Spurgeon looks at the qualifications required by God and by man, the obstacles encountered, the cost involved and the reward offered. There is no triumphalism here, but a lucid and living gaze on this task of resurrection. Both the young lamb of the flock and the old warrior will find in these pages a challenge to their love for the Savior.
Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) - A famous Baptist preacher in 19th century London, he preached to large crowds for nearly 40 years. He was the founder of numerous works in a wide range of fields.
