Overview

Charles Spurgeon was a simple country lad who went on to become one of the best-known preachers in London, Europe and the world. Caught in a snowstorm one night Charles snuck into the back pew of a dusty country chapel. He had no idea that as well as escaping the freezing temperatures outside he would be faced with the most important decision of his life. A wrinkled old man started to preach. Charles thought it would be a thoroughly boring service - but with the words "Look unto Jesus and be saved!" a cold and grumpy teenager began to realise that God's word can change you, completely! The simple country lad became a man who mixed with princes and beggars. He spoke words that touched the hearts of rich and poor alike. His fame became so widespread that it is reputed that even Queen Victoria attended one of his sermons. The Queen of England came to listen to the Prince of Preachers. But Charles was more concerned about the King of Kings - Jesus Christ.

From the Publisher
At night I've been reading my kids a biography of Charles Spurgeon by Christian Timothy George. It's in the Trailblazers series for children published by Christian Focus. They have biographies of great saints from Church history ranging from Jonathan Edwards and John Calvin to Bill Bright and Martyn Lloyd Jones...I'm impressed by the books that Christian Focus is putting out. If you have children, be sure to check them out. ~ Josh Harris(Senior Pastor, Covenant Life Church, Gaithersburg, Maryland)

    Excellent read!

    I was able to read a pre-publication copy of this book, and it is EXCELLENT. What a great story for middle school-aged children who are looking for an exciting and uplifting biography! This is the latest in the Trailblazer series of Christian biography, and it is a great addition. I look forward to sharing this book with the children I know. -Charles Spurgeon: The Prince of Preachers- will teach, edify, and entertain its readers both young and old!
