Great Sermon! I listen to anything that Iain speaks or preaches on when I come across them. The "tbcmontville.org" site must be the most beautifully complete place for the hundreds & hundreds of sound (mostly Reformed) preachers/teachers. When a much younger man in the faith of Jesus, among some fine men of God that appeared at or about the same time frame...who helped me very much when I never had a good, sound local church to attend to, one of them I was led to soon on was Iain Murray and his fine bio sketch of CHS years ago moved me to read Spurgeon more and more & he (CHS) became a regular companion of mine via the 1,000's of sermons we are blessed to have by the Prince of Preachers.
This address by Iain on Spurgeon is even better than the earlier one that I spoke of from many yr ago. I heard some new material, more facts and had it been exactly as the other I would have loved it just as much...there being something great about good biographies that move me to pray, to be more like these before us who plodded on all their lives serving the Lord.
I love mostly the Banner of Truths 2 vol on CHS by far but found the G H Pike one and the Fullerton and Carlisle ones helpful as well for I cannot read enough of his sermons (now read on CD too!) nor hear/read his bio over anytime.

Excellent message! Excellent, interesting, edifying message. After listening the message, I think it is impossible not to be interested in Spurgeon.

Edifying Speech! This is edifying, instructive speech like to promote faith and courage in the hearer. This is wonderful information that is wonderfully told. Great information on the background and enduring contributions of C H Spurgeon to the church. It includes stories of incidents that I'd not heard previously.
Some might ask, "Why study Church History?".
