Charles Spurgeon, the great Baptist preacher of nineteenth-century London, is remembered today as 'the prince of preachers.' However, the strength of Spurgeon's ministry went far beyond simple rhetorical skill. In this book, Steven J. Lawson shows that Spurgeon fearlessly taught the doctrines of grace and simultaneously held forth the free offer of salvation in Jesus Christ.
The Gospel Focus of Charles Spurgeon is a passionate call for all Christians to follow Spurgeon in maintaining the proper balance between divine sovereignty in salvation and fiery passion in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
"Steve Lawson, a great preacher in his own right, has emerged as our generation's finest biographer of great preachers... This work on Charles Spurgeon is likewise brilliant, highlighting Spurgeon's Calvinistic convictions alongside his evangelistic zeal - showing why those two characteristics are perfectly harmonious and equally essential characteristics of any truly biblical ministry. A riveting work, this book will fuel your enthusiasm for both sound doctrine and earnest evangelism." - John MacArthur, Pastor, Grace Community Church
