Product Description

About the Author

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) was England's best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1854, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 20, became pastor of London's famed New Park Street Church (formerly pastored by the famous Baptist theologian John Gill). The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey Music Hall. In these venues Spurgeon frequently preached to audiences numbering more than 10,000—all in the days before electronic amplification. In 1861 the congregation moved permanently to the newly constructed Metropolitan Tabernacle. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to win souls for Christ 11 Mar 2011
How important is it that human beings are able to relate to their maker? What are the consequences of not knowing God, and not coming to Christ to be forgiven? In this age of non-stop entertainment and countless distractions from thinking beyond the here and now, it is difficult for our society to take seriously the claims of the Bible, and to grasp the fact that without God we are lost and face an eternity of darkness, pain and regret.
Many never think of spiritual issues at all and believe that death brings annihilation, with no consequences for anything that may have been said or done. The idea that there is even such a thing as good or bad, are outside the language and thought processes of too many.
How important is it to us that people around us are heading to destruction? It is very hard to grapple with this fact, as it hurts us to think that those around us that we love are in such straights, and we feel powerless to do anything about it. If someone chooses death, rather than eternal life, does it drive us to petition God to act to impress upon them their dangerous state? Do we try to think carefully of ways to engage the person, and "witness" to them?
These are some of the issues discussed by Charles Haddon Spurgeon, in his book "The Soulwinner." This book is a collection of lectures to his students, to stimulate them to be very proactive in winning souls for Christ. He is clear that this is not just the job of the minister, but every Christian should be searching for opportunities to act and speak for Christ, and show those around them their need of forgiveness, and the love of Christ to rescue from punishment.
Spurgeon seeks to persuade and encourage all of us as Christian believers, to be soul winners.

5.0 out of 5 stars life changing 20 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are many books on witnessing today, most of which are just a collection of prepared anwers to the most common objections of cultists, atheists and members of other religions. This approach may be good to sell books, but not to win souls, because it does not take count that every individual is different, and we have to adapt in order to be effective evangelizers.
Spurgeon's approach is completely different. He does not give us a systematic approach to witnessing, but rather he simply explains what it means to win a soul, why it is so important, possible obstacles and so forth with so much heart, dedication and evident love for God's Word that after I finished it I was totally inspired to go out on the streets and tell everybody about the wonderful Good News of Jesus Christ.
Every page is filled with personal stories, anecdotes and practical examples that make this book a pleasure to read.
A must read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Challenging and Inspiring Read 29 Jun 2010
This book challenged me in my personal holiness. It was during a time when I was entering what might be called "A dark night of the soul". Spurgeon is very clear on what he considers true and false converts, and this caused a lot of introspection on my part, something I can say I am thankful for, though it was not an easy process to go through.

Spurgeon addresses many types of witnessing approaches for all types of people and situations, so the book has a wide appeal to Christians at all stages and stations of life.

There are a lot of great one-liners or quotes, which I have taken the time to write down in a quotes book, which I hope to use in my evangelism or preaching. Spurgeon really did have an amazing command of the English language.

I personally disagree with Spurgeon on Calvinism, which is intertwined almost into every thought. This of course is no reason not to buy the book. Whatever your persuasion this book will be one of the most challenging reads you've had in a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before soul-winning, we need soul searching. 24 Sep 2013
By Penguin
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What is the business of Christians or the church? Fishing (Matthew 4:19), or in the context of this book, to win souls for Christ.

Haven't we all stumbled when we try and tell people about Christ? How many people whom we have been instrumental in bringing to Christ? Are we all easily discouraged? Are we effective in telling people the gospel? In my experience, I have met with indifference and apathy far more often than a keen interest and an open mind. We may ask, where do we fail and what are the secrets to winning souls? This book takes us on a field trip into this "fishing" business. From the mind of one of the greatest soul-winners, we are shown the ins and outs of how this business is really run!

Oftentimes to prepare for personal evangelism, we are equipped with knowledge, for example, "answers" to the common challenges, reasons to believe, or how to explain the gospel in three simple steps. When I fail, I often think that it is because I don't know enough. But no, this book is not about the theology or convincing arguments, which if memorised will guarantee souls being won; no, such list doesn't exist. Rather the business is about the people - the believers who would like to share the gospel, and the non-believers, who they are and why. In particular, we might think that we might win someone's soul by winning the argument, but no. Spurgeon says that people, with their opinion to them more weighty, more worthy of belief, than God's inspired declaration, are very hard to influence. He warns us, "not to fight them with their own weapons. I do not believe that infidels ever are won by argument; or, if so, it very seldom happens... As a rule, they barricade their minds against the assaults of reason ...
