Before a man becomes a Christian he has many false ideas about God’s way of salvation. These errors frequently prevent seekers coming to Jesus Christ and trust in Him wholly. InAdvice for Seekers, Spurgeon deals with these problems one by one. Before his own conversion he found many difficulties in coming to Christ, even though he had much biblical knowledge. The seeker will find a sympathetic counsellor in Spurgeon.
It is out of fashion to be a seeker in our day. Any real interest in the Christian gospel is often mistaken for faith itself. The seeker’s problems are driven “underground”, and he is treated as though he were a Christian when he is not. This book will help these “almost Christians”. But believers will also be helped. Doubts and fears will be removed and many trembling Christians will be brought to full assurance.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) was England’s best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1854, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 20, became pastor of London’s famed New Park Street Church (formerly pastored by the famous Baptist theologian John Gill). The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey Music Hall.
In these venues Spurgeon frequently preached to audiences numbering more than 10,000—all in the days before electronic amplification. In 1861 the congregation moved permanently to the newly constructed Metropolitan Tabernacle. Spurgeon’s printed works are voluminous, and those provided here is only a sampling of his best-known works, including his magnum opus, The Treasury of David. Nearly all of Spurgeon’s printed works are still in print and available from Pilgrim Publications.
