Product description

Review

... Nettles has given us an immense and monumental portrait of almost every aspect of the life of "the prince of preachers,"... educational, edifying, and enjoyable to read, this massive work is a masterful contribution to Baptist history and Christian biography. (David S. Dockery ~ President, Trinity International University, Deerfield, Illinois)

Nettles presents the ministerial brilliance of the "Prince of Preachers,"... readers will be encouraged and edified by this engaging account of Spurgeon's life and ministry. (Steven J. Lawson ~ President, OnePassion Ministries and Professor of Preaching,The Master’s Seminary, Sun Valley, California)

This is certainly deserving of the best book of 2013. (Sam Storms ~ Lead Pastor, Bridgeway Church, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma)

... an "all-round" study of Spurgeon that provides us with a fully reliable, substantial examination of an extremely important figure in the life of Victorian Evangelicalism and the world of that era. (Michael A. G. Haykin ~ Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky)

... takes us into the heart of Charles Spurgeon's conviction and his pastoral theology. This is a book that will encourage, educate, and bless its readers.
(R. Albert Mohler ~ President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky)

While numerous biographies of Spurgeon have been published over the decades, Spurgeon's thought normally receives short shrift from his biographers. This is why this new biography is so important. By focusing on Spurgeon's memoirs and published articles, Tom Nettles has filled an important gap in scholarship related to Spurgeon with this exhaustive intellectual biography of the Prince of Preachers. Many pastors and other casual readers will be encouraged by Spurgeon's commitment to a high view of Scripture and historic Baptist orthodoxy from a Reformed perspective. Scholars will be forced to reckon with Spurgeon the theologian as they pursue their own studies of the famed Victorian pastor. (Nathan A. Finn ~ Dean of the School of Theology and Missions and Professor of Christian Thought and Tradition, Union University, Jackson, Tennessee)

What Nettles makes plain is that for Spurgeon, all theology is pastoral theology. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It should be widely distributed by all who love the gospel of God's grace that Spurgeon preached. Every pastor, ministerial student and those who work to train men for the ministry should carefully learn from the life and labors of Charles Haddon Spurgeon as Tom Nettles elucidates them. Nearly everyone who knows of Spurgeon admires him for his great accomplishments. Nettles helps us understand the theological underpinnings of those accomplishments. In doing so, the author, like his subject, has served the church well. (Tom Ascol ~ Pastor, Grace Baptist Church, Cape Coral, Florida)

I just wonder why FL doesn't at least make mention that it's on their other site.
