Lectures to My Students

Lectures to My StudentsAuthor(s): Charles Spurgeon
Publisher: GLH Publishing
Price: $0.99

“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 Pastors College in London.
