Product Description

About the Author

C. H. Spurgeon, the great Victorian preacher, was one of the most influential people of the second half of the 19th Century. At the heart of his desire to preach was a fierce love of people, a desire that meant he did not neglect his pastoral ministry. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
An excellent brief book, by C.H. Spurgeon. Suitable for people who are familiar with the truth of the christian message, but have not yet become christians by trusting in Christ for salvation. Spurgeon seeks to help those who have been wandering around the wicket gate to actually take the step and enter in. This is a very helpful and valuable book.

Well Mr Spurgeon is often called the greatest writer for his time and this short book in my view does not disprove cast any doubt on that claim. He speaks( or writes) in a way few do now. He writes a powerful message for salvation and even in today's world there is no reason this can not be past to those seeking or far away from CHRIST. I do recommend this book to new believers and any unsaved friends you have (or even enemies).

HASH(0x9b659a8c) out of 5 stars The gospel: The power of God to save. 16 April 2005
By IWasPrimeScammed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The title of this book relates to Bunyan's Pilgrims Progress. The Pilgrim had to go through a little wicket gate, which stands for the entrance into the Kingdom (or salvation).

Charles Spurgeon, a greatly gifted physician of souls, was concerned that many hung around the wicket gate, as it were, but did not go in. Part of the problem being that they found many reasons to exclude themselves from the simple, honest and real invitation to every man, woman and child, who was willing to enter in. Remember the leper who came to Jesus and said: "If You are willing, You can make me clean"? Jesus answered: "I am willing, be clean", and with that He touched and healed the sick man. There was no lack of willingness in Jesus. All who come to Him for salvation will find it, because He was so willing that He actually died to get us in.

But even to believers the mysteries of the wicket gate can be quite daunting. After all, if we are not sure how we got in the gate, we can hardly recommend it to others! It only takes a little doubt to shut us up, and make us feel that if we only ploughed our way through a virtual library of books our assurance in the gospel would return. This won't do.

But what should someone do to be saved? Must they conclude that the wicket gate, that gives them access to light and life, is actually their baptism; or their going forward in a meeting; or their sinner's prayer; or even their spoken declaration to follow Jesus? This is what this small book is concerned with and helps us understand.

Why do I recommend this book to you? I do so because the gospel is at once utterly simple and at the same time profoundly deep. The gospel is, actually, if you wish to look at it like this, an introduction to the real and living Lord, Jesus Christ. It is not just accepting a number of propositions; neither is it simply getting your head round some difficult concepts. It is quite literally to encounter Jesus for yourself.

The reason that the gospel is the power of God to save is that it presents Jesus. The evangelist doesn't save people, nor, in a sense, does the repentant sinner get HIMSELF saved. The gospel is a wicket gate - a door. That door is Jesus. It's not just about Jesus; it is Jesus! "I am the door", says Jesus, "He who enters by Me shall be saved".

When you get excited about the "wicket gate" you aren't just getting excited about some method or way of salvation, you are getting excited about Jesus; the Jesus that died and rose again for you. That's why I can happily recommend this book to you: I want you to know Him.

HASH(0x9b705348) out of 5 stars around the wicket gate 4 Feb. 2000
By a. hansen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Spurgeon's book is a concise look at scriptural teaching on what true salvation is, and is not. He uses the allegory "Pilgrim's Progress" to illustrate his teachings on the matter. This book is an easy read, but pithy and thought-provoking. I enjoyed this book very much and have passed it on to others.

This book is great because of its simplicity and its beautiful illustrations of Biblical principles. I highly recommend this book to anyone and I recommend that you lend it to your friends, too. It is small but powerful.

HASH(0x9b705d50) out of 5 stars Terrible. So many typos, it's not even readable. 20 Oct. 2010
By montar en bicicleta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Though it says nothing about this in the description, this book was not written by a human. It was scanned and reproduced by a computer (Apparently to save on costs, humans were removed from every aspect of this books creation). There are literally typos on every page and in many places there are entire paragraphs and pages that are completely unreadable, because there are so many typos its nonsense. (It's not just a misspelled word here and there, its entire paragraphs full of gibberish.) I really wanted to read this book and I thought the price was great, but this is not a book, this is a production experiment gone awry. Do not buy this book, unless you just want to read the title, because that's about the only thing that is legible.

HASH(0x9b705c90) out of 5 stars riddled with typos 4 Feb. 2010
By Alan Westcott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As published by General Books, who used optical character recognition (OCR), this book has too many typos - and I mean serious typos: (page 1, "TV/TILLIONS of men are ...";page 3,"$rounb tfye tDtcket HEAT numbers of persons ..." and so on. I realize that the term 'typo' probably is not the best term for OCR flubs, but this book was a real publishing disappointment. Not worth the price, no matter how low.
