Spurgeon's Own Hymn BookISBN: 9781527104426
Charles Haddon Spurgeon was passionate about congregational worship. Arising from devout affection, the frustration he found while using the the compilations of hymns available in his day, spurred him to compile this selection of hymns for use in his congregation. Over 1,000 psalms, hymns and spiritual songs include not only direct praise, but doctrine, experience and exhortation, enabling the saints to edify one another in their singing. Cross-references to Spurgeon's other works ensure that this will be a valuable addition to any library.
This beautiful gift edition includes
- a foreword by Spurgeon scholar Tom Nettles
- added Spurgeon essay 'How Shall We Sing?'
- elegant hardback cloth bound cover
C. H. Spurgeon, the great Victorian preacher, was one of the most influential people of the second half of the 19th Century. At the heart of his desire to preach was a fierce love of people, a desire that meant he did not neglect his pastoral ministry.
Persons frequently ask me how to get started reading poetry. Reading the rich texts found in this hymnal is a pretty good way to learn how to read and enjoy poetry, but it is an even better way to feed your soul with these beautiful Psalms and hymns.
