Spurgeon's renowned ability to convey the power of Scripture with eloquence and purpose make this an invaluable resource for both the new Christian and the seasoned believer. About the Author Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), the "Prince of Preachers," preached his first sermon at age sixteen. During his lifetime he preached to an estimated ten million people.
