Spurgeon--A New Biography
Summary: A well written, very readable account of the Prince of Preachers--starting with his childhood, continuing with his rise to the pulpit and finishing with an extensive overview of his work as a seasoned preacher. There is an excellent overview of all the special projects he undertook such as the children's home, the Pastor's college and the almshouses. This book also spoke much of Mrs. Spurgeon's work in the shadow of the great Tabernacle.
Personal Thoughts: Thus far, this is certainly the best biography I have ever read on Spurgeon. It is not at all tedious as other biographies can be, and while thorough, it still travels at a pretty good pace. This book is honest as you read of Spurgeon's struggles, trials and even bad habits. Depression was no stranger to this man of God. It's a simple book with huge impact. I particularly loved reading about Spurgeon's sincerity and wish I could mimic that in even a small way.
