It was one hundred and twenty years ago today that Charles Haddon Spurgeon finished his earthly race. He was 57 years old. The life and legacy of Spurgeon is well known. He was London’s most popular preacher during the second half of the 19th century. He was passionately and thoroughly biblical and unusually gifted in his mental and oratory abilities. He was also incredibly prolific. The manuscripts of his sermons fill 63 volumes, which, according to Eric Hayden, “stands alone as the largest set of books by a single author in the history of Christianity.”
Keep reading because down below I’ll be giving away a little piece of history—a sermon manuscript page that has been heavily amended by Spurgeon himself.
