It is not easy to depict in a few words a character as astonishing, colorful and gigantic as Charles Spurgeon. Despite the absence of television and modern media in his time, he stands as a giant, even when compared to the many current stars who occupy the field of the "evangelical" world.
This biography, however, stands out because, beyond the figures, behind the immense crowds, after the preaching, it reveals the leader of men, the giant in prayer, the heart of a child that Charles Spurgeon really was. But, even deeper than all this, it shows Spurgeon's God, sovereign and all-powerful, the one who kept his servant in total submission before using him with great power and effectiveness.
Thousands, perhaps even millions, heard Spurgeon and received eternal life in his time. Will our generation turn a blind eye? Spurgeon preached one message, one God – may his times and blessings not be unique!
