A personal account of Charles Haddon Spurgeon's life by a student at his college and a close personal friend Google Books Originally published: 1895
Hundreds of volumes have been written upon the life, labours and legacy of C H Spurgeon. What makes Williams' book so different? Most other writers concentrate on Spurgeon as the prince of preachers, publisher, pastor and philanthropist. He preached to an estimated 10 million in his lifetime. His prolific published works include the largest collection of written sermons in Christian history and 150 additional books. During his long pastorate, 14,692 were baptized and brought into membership. He pioneered orphanages, homes for the aged and other ministries to the poor and needy.
However, Williams, a student at Spurgeon's college and later a close friend has captured 'Spurgeon the person.'
