"…it is not the object of this book to ask anything of you, but to tell you that salvation is all of grace, which means, free, gratis, for nothing."

C.H. Spurgeon is best known for his reasonalble and rational sermons and teachings. He preached to thousands in England during the 1800s; many times in contradiction to the established church beliefs.

All of Grace insights include:

  • The salvation of God is for those who do not deserve it.

  • Faith is the work of God's grace in us.

  • Forgiveness leads to repentance.

  • If you look to Christ for your beginnings, beware of looking to yourself for your endings.

  • The life of your soul lies in faith; its health lies in love.

Common and vivid illustrations such as limpets at the seaside, a cup by the fountain, and fighting a swarm of flies with a sword characterizes the simple yet eternal truths of the gospel as shared by C.H. Spurgeon, a Reformed Baptist preacher.

Always humbly directing the focus on the God of all grace, the author beckons his readers to accept salvation as the free and for nothing promise from a faithful heavenly Father of love.

About the author (2011)

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was born on June 19, 1834, at Kelvedon, Essex, England, the firstborn of eight surviving children. His parents were committed Christians, and his father was a preacher. Spurgeon was converted in 1850 at the age of fifteen. He began to help the poor and to hand out tracts; he was known as "The Boy Preacher." His next six years were eventful. He preached his first sermon at the age of sixteen. At age eighteen, he became the pastor of Waterbeach Baptist Chapel, preaching in a barn. Spurgeon preached over six hundred times before he reached the age of twenty. By 1854, he was well-known and was asked to become the pastor of New Park Street Chapel in London. In 1856, Spurgeon married Susannah Thompson; they had twin sons, both of whom later entered the ministry. Spurgeon's compelling sermons and lively preaching style drew multitudes of people, and many came to Christ. Soon, the crowds had grown so large that they blocked the narrow streets near the church. Services eventually had to be held in rented halls, and Spurgeon often preached to congregations of more than ten thousand. The Metropolitan Tabernacle was built in 1861 to accommodate the large numbers of people. Spurgeon published over thirty-five hundred sermons, which were so popular that they sold by the ton. At one point, twenty-five thousand copies of his sermons sold every week. The prime minister of England, members of the royal family, and Florence Nightingale, among others, went to hear him preach. Spurgeon preached to an estimated ten million people throughout his life. Not surprisingly, he is called the "Prince of Preachers." In addition to his powerful preaching, Spurgeon founded and supported charitable outreaches, including educational institutions. His pastors' college, which is still in existence today, taught nearly nine hundred students in Spurgeon's time. He also founded the famous Stockwell Orphanage. Charles Spurgeon died in 1892, and his death was mourned by many.
