Bible Commentaries Spurgeon's Verse Expositions of the Bible Spurgeon's Verse Expositions
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was born in Essex, England. After preaching his first sermon at the age of 16, he became pastor of the church in Waterbeach at the age of 17. His most fruitful years of ministry were at the New Park Street and later the Metropolitan Tabernacle pulpit in London. Called the "Prince of Preachers," he had more than 1,900 sermons published prior to his death.
Before each weekly sermon, Spurgeon read a passage of Scripture, often interrupting his readings with spontaneous verse by verse comments to expose the Scripture's meaning and content. Many of these expositions were published at the end of his weekly sermons in The Sword and The Trowel.
However, they have never before been published as a work to themselves. Three volumes are here published under the title Spurgeon's Expositions of the Bible containing a complete compilation of those expositions. While not every scripture of the Bible was covered in his transcribed expositions, this mammoth project has resulted in a "virtual" concise Bible commentary.
