Editorial Reviews

Steve Lawson, a great preacher in his own right, has emerged as our generation's finest biographer of great preachers. His works on John Calving and Jonathan Edwards are both masterpieces. Steve has a knack for pointing out and explaining the outstanding traits that made each of these unique preachers truly important and influential. 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. --Dr. John MacArthur: Pastor, Grace Community Church; President, The Masters College and Seminary Sun Valley, CaliforniaI own at least three dozen different biographies of the prince of preachers, but Steve Lawson's new book on Charles Spurgeon will from now on have akey place of prominence in my short list of favorites. Dr. Lawson understands what made the great preacher's heart beat: it was the gospel, charged with a passion for the souls of lost people and kept steady by the doctrines of grace. The clear rhythm of that pulse reverberates through this book and it's a catchy beat. I'm profoundly glad for that, and I hope countless readers will be moved to get in step with the cadence. --Phil Johnson: Executive director, Grace to You; Curator, The Spurgeon ArchiveFor more than thirty-six years, Steve Lawson has had an intense interest in the ministry of Charles Spurgeon. In April 1976, he wrote a paper on Spurgeon's theological controversies for a Baptist history class at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. In that paper, Lawson said about Spurgeon, 'He magnified God's grace and glorified God's Son.' Lawson has shown in this book how those traits of Spurgeon's ministry, plus his thorough commitment to the infallibility of Scripture, his fervent grace-centered evangelism, his utter dependence on the work of the Holy Spirit, and his personal courage, make Spurgeon transcend the ages as a model for church-centered gospel ministry. Every Christian will be encouraged by Lawson's description of Spurgeon's life and his analysis of Spurgeon's driving commitments to the whole counsel of God. Loaded with pungent quotes from Spurgeon and punctuated with helpful and pertinent exhortations from Lawson, this is a book for us all. --Dr. Thomas J. Nettles: Professor of historical theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky.
