What a joy it was to read this book! Without a doubt this was one of the most challenging books I have ever read. At the end of this review, you will see a link where you can read the entire book online.
This book is a collection of 19 full-length sermons by Charles Spurgeon all based upon Scripture texts that have to do with farming. Since Spurgeon lived over 100 years ago, some may find his language a bit strange at times; however, the “down-to-earth” nature of Spurgeon’s preaching easily makes up for any words or phrases with which the reader may not be familiar.
Spurgeon is extremely adept at examining a brief text from all possible angles, and he employs colorful and descriptive imagery to drive each point home. His well-thought and logical explanations are thought provoking, and his intense passion for both the saved and the lost comes through clearly in each sermon. Let me highlight a few of my favorite sermons in this book.
