The Soul Winner: Advice on Effective Evangelism (C.H. Spurgeon Classics)
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
“. . . full of the pith, humour and wisdom one expects of Spurgeon . . . it was to God that Spurgeon looked and expected blessing and that he received it . . . It is heartening to read of the joys and problems associated with the preaching of the Gospel . . . he had the ability to go to the heart of matters . . . This is a book to relish and enjoy, and then to apply, under the earnest seeking for the blessing of God, to today's world.”See All
One of the most effective evangelists of all time. Under his ministry Victorian London saw revival on a scale never seen since. Yet Spurgeon would be the first to point your finger away from himself to the true author of repentance and reformation - he realised that without God at work, he could do nothing.
Many people sought Spurgeon's advice on evangelism and preaching and so he addressed a wide variety of different groups of people on the subject. Here is a collection of his lectures and talks to take people away from human inspired gimmickry and slavish mimicry to think through for themselves how to enable God to work in their lives and ministry.
Spurgeon was the minister of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London during the Victorian era. The author of numerous books, his sermons were reprinted and sold in tens of millions. Thousands gathered to hear him preach, but he was not just an eloquent man, he was a man driven to taking the gospel to the people with the utmost urgency.

He is known as the 'Prince of Preachers'. His sermons drew thousands to his church. Yet, at the heart of his desire to preach was a fierce love of people, a desire that meant that he did not neglect his pastoral ministry.
