SERMONS ON JESUS AND THE HOLY SPIRIT
Charles H. Spurgeon

Considering Christ and the Comforter

Since the days he shook the pulpits of Victorian London with Christ-centered passion, each succeeding generation seems to discover Charles Spurgeon anew. And this splendid collection is the ideal place to start. Featuring stirring sermons on the birth of Jesus, on his astounding love, and on his promised second coming, as well as comforting meditations on the work of the Holy Spirit; it offers over 40 homiletic gems from the Prince of Preachers.

In sermons as timeless as their topics, Spurgeon combines keen intellect, scriptural truth, and a zeal for making God known to a world in darkness. With insightful truths gleaming from every page, readers will find devotional treasure whenever they sample Spurgeon's gifted exposition, and will be drawn closer to the God who came, who will come again, and who sends his Spirit as a promise of his presence.
