Earlier this year B&H Publishing Group released the first volume of The Lost Sermons of C. H. Spurgeon. C.H. Spurgeon to many is known as Charles Spurgeon, the popular British pastor from the 19th century. What this book was a collection of sermons and outlines from Spurgeon collected in a notebook that he preached. The years these sermons and outlines were written in this notebook was from 1851-1854.
Just recently, a second volume was released which have more sermons and outlines from the same years as the previous book. This time around we have The Lost Sermons of C.H. Spurgeon, Vol. II: His Earliest Outlines and Sermons Between 1851 and 1854. This book contains 57 sermons of Spurgeon that was written in his second notebook. This book has a photo of the notebook and the handwritten pages as well.
The sermons in this second volume are a various range of topics from various scriptures. Most of the sermons are from the New Testament and most of them also have one verse as its main reference. Some of the topics Spurgeon preached on were about hearing God’s word, the effects of the Law, temptation, and why the church needs the Holy Spirit. As I mentioned there are 57 great sermons from, who many call, the prince of preachers.
I confess that I have not had the chance to obtain a copy of the first volume of these lost sermons of Spurgeon, but if it anything like this second volume, I know it will be worth it. These sermons have been preserved from many years and I am thankful they have been published in a way that anyone read these sermons.
