Christian’s Latest Book

Charles Spurgeon has been called “one of evangelical Christianity’s immortals”.  Converted at 14 and with a congregation of his own by 16, Spurgeon had, by his early twenties, already become pastor of the largest Protestant congregation in the world. His legendary and booming voice reached crowds of 20,000+ without amplification and it’s been said that he could be heard up to a mile away. His church baptized almost 15,000 members, maintained a weekly attendance of 6,000 people and spawned 66 parachurch ministries, including two orphanages, a book fund, a retirement home and a theological college. Each week, Spurgeon wrote nearly 500 letters, digested six meaty books, preached up to 12 times and wore the hat of pastor, president, editor, author, and evangelist. By 1892, he had published more words in the English language than any other Christian in history and without the aid of television, radio, the Internet or modern transportation, it is estimated that he proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ to over 10 million people in his lifetime.  

In 1857, Charles Spurgeon assured his readers that he would publish his earliest sermons. That promise, for a myriad of reasons, went unfulfilled and for almost 160 years, these sermons – the first 400 written by Spurgeon, just after his conversion and between the ages of 16-20 — were lost to history … until they were discovered in 2011 by Dr. George.  Beginning in January 2017, B&H Academic will begin releasing a twelve-volume set that includes full-color facsimiles, transcriptions, contextual and biographical introductions and editorial annotations. Written for scholars, pastors and students alike, The Lost Sermons will add approximately 10% more material to Spurgeon’s total body of literature and will constitute the first critical edition of any of his works.
