Spurgeon’s forgotten sermons

with 2 comments

Sermons Beyond Volume 63 (CHS)If you appreciate Charles Haddon Spurgeon and have profited from the Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit series, you are likely to be interested in this: a volume of 45 Spurgeon sermons from DayOne that might well have constituted the continuation of the series, had it been resumed after WWI.  The blurb says:

Here are 45 sermons which were awaiting publication in the Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit when it came to an abrupt end in 1917.

The 63 volumes and 3563 sermons of Spurgeon’s New Park Street and Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpits were a remarkable achievement, and it was only on account of the shortage of paper and metal caused by the First World War that publication ceased on 10th May 1917.

Many hundreds of sermons were ready and waiting for their weekly publication and notices in the last two sermons indicated that it was the intention to resume publication once peace had been restored. However, only twenty hitherto unpublished sermons were to appear in 1922 in a volume entitled ‘Able to the uttermost’.

It is the purpose of this volume to bring to light the sermons which probably would have appeared in te remainder of Volume 63 and at the start of volume 64 of the Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, sermons which originally appeared only in magazine format from 1877 to 1881.

Spurgeon appreciators and afficionados, read a taster or get purchasing!

    • Good man! Proof-reading is one good way to get through a book properly, but you seem to have developed the knack of both looking for errors and appreciating the substance – good multi-tasking!

      Thank you for the recommendation (although we shall know who to blame for errors – can’t be Spurgeon’s fault, can they?).
