Overview

“My college lectures are colloquial, familiar, full of anecdote, and often humorous; they are purposely made so, to suit the occasion. At the end of the week I meet the students, and find them weary . . . and only in a condition to receive something which will attract and secure their attention, and fire their hearts.”

Though best remembered as the most popular preacher of the Victorian era, C. H. Spurgeon was also founder and president of the Pastor’s College in London. He supervised the training of over 800 students, presided at an annual conference for ministers, and, on Friday afternoons, delivered regular lectures on every aspect of pulpit ministry.

Featuring such gems as “The Minister’s Fainting Fits”; “Posture, Action, Gesture, etc.”; and “On the Choice of a Text,” this unabridged edition of 28 of Spurgeon’s classroom discourses on homiletics overflows with practical wisdom, discerning wit, and sage advice. Covering the call, open-air preaching, ordinary conversations, using illustrations, and conduct outside the church, Spurgeon’s words are as rich and nourishing for pastors and students today as they were more than a century ago.

CHAPTERS INCLUDE
• The Minister’s Self-Watch
• Our Public Prayer
• On Spiritualizing
• The Blind Eye and the Deaf Ear
• On Conversion as Our Aim
• The Sciences as Sources of Illustration

An excellent and useful gift for pastors and seminary students, church history enthusiasts, and even collectors and readers of classic Victorian literature.

Not sure about the one rating for poor quality, as the date of the review predates this edition of the book.  I found very few character errors in this edition and felt the content was wonderful.  Must reading for anyone who engages in pulpit ministry and wants to be effective.

Great book however this version has a bad problem with its characters making it virtually unreadable.
