During the his lifetime (1834-1892) Charles Haddon Spurgeon preached 2 sermons per week over a period of more than 30 years. His sermons were tailored towards the working class of the Victorian era, delivered in the common everyday language of the people and drawing illustrations from their daily life experiences. These qualities of his sermons, combined with his legendary oratory skills (He was preaching to a congregation of over 10,000 in the days when the microphone was not yet invented) contributed to his immense popularity as a preacher. He is the most widely published author of religious works in English. The complete collection of Spurgeon’s sermons fills more than 60 volumes, published over a period of more than 60 years.
Reverend Spurgeon once wrote: “I have one great favour to ask of all readers of the sermons, and that is, that they will try to spread them abroad, and increase the number of regular subscribers. What has been good to you will be good for others if the Lord bless it. If you cannot preach yourself, you can distribute the word spoken by others.” It is in answer to this call that Spurgeon Collection was conceived.
Spurgeon Collection intends to present the sermons of CH Spurgeon in the modern blog format, which incorporates automatic indexing and site search capabilities. The intention is to post a few sermons each week for the edification of the internet Christian community. It is hoped that with this format Spurgeon’s sermons may be made more accessible to the reader who will be able to take time to meditate and contemplate on the weekly sermons.
