Spurgeon preached his first sermon by age 16, held his first pastorate at 18, and was preaching in London by age 20. In this audio interview Tom Nettles and Christian George cover the early years of Spurgeon’s ministry.
Read the accounts of several men and women who were converted under the preaching of Spurgeon at the Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit in 1860. These accounts were written by church elders upon interviewing the individual. There are many accounts similar to the one below:
The attention of this young person was first arrested by a sermon of Mr Spurgeon delivered about eleven months ago from the text ‘Come unto me all ye that labour &c.’ Before that time she had never thought about coming to Christ, but when she heard that sermon her desire for salvation by the blood of Jesus was intense. For 3 weeks she was unable to hope but afterward through the instrumentality of several of Mr Spurgeon’s sermons she received great encouragement and found peace in believing. Having seen her again today I can now cordially recommend her as a babe in grace.
Unfortunately, there are no recordings of C.H. Spurgeon. However, his son Thomas succeeded him as the pastor of the Metropolitan Tabernacle and was said to have a nearly identical voice. Listen to him reading the end of his father’s final sermon.
A nearly-complete index of Spurgeon’s sermons arranged by books of the Bible is available from Spurgeon.org here. In it you’ll find a wealth of Biblical wisdom to enrich your devotional life and aid your Bible study.
