An Earnest Word with Those

Who Are Seeking Salvation
by the Lord Jesus Christ

Charles H. Spurgeon

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher who remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations. He is still known as the "Prince of Preachers".

Spurgeon never attended theological school. By the age of twenty-one he was the most popular preacher in London.

He was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition, defending the Church in agreement with the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith understanding, and opposing the liberal and pragmatic theological tendencies in the Church of his day,

Spurgeon preached to around 10,000,000 people, often up to 10 times each week at different places.

Spurgeon was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London for 38 years, despite the fact he was part of several controversies with the Baptist Union of Great Britain and later had to leave the denomination.

In 1857, he started a charity organization called Spurgeon's which now works globally, and he also founded Spurgeon's College, which was named after him posthumously.

Spurgeon was a prolific author of many types of works, including sermons, an autobiography, commentaries, books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns and more.

All of Grace

"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."

Charles Spurgeon

All of Grace by Charles Spurgeon is a classic. It’s plain gospel presentation has been used to lead many people to Christ over the years since it’s publication, and has inspired generations of soulwinners.

All of Grace is a simple and eloquent presentation of basic salvation through grace alone. Spurgeon wants readers only to consume his work and ponder it, he asks nothing in return because he believes in the power of God to bring unbelievers to Him.

This short and easy read is both a perfect introduction to salvation and an assurance of it for unbelievers and the saved alike. In the last line, Spurgeon beseeches readers to accept salvation now and "Meet me in heaven." 

You can read it in an evening, and every Christian ought to do so at least once.  It’s also a great book to give to a friend or loved one that you’ve been witnessing to.
