In this episode, Tyrell sits down with Mark Penrith, pastor-teacher of Crystal Park Baptist Church in Benoni, South Africa. Mark and Tyrell discuss Charles Spurgeon’s famed Lectures to My Students, which is a written selection, originally published in 1869, from his addresses delivered to college students at the Pastors’ College Metropolitan Tabernacle in London.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon was born in Kelvedon, Essex, England on 19 June 1834. His father and grandfather were both pastors and, at the age of twenty, he became the pastor of the New Park Street Church in London. The congregation quickly outgrew the building and moved to Exeter Hall. In 1861, the congregation moved to the newly constructed Metropolitan Tabernacle. During his lifetime, he published over 3,500 sermons that filled 63 volumes. His series stands as the largest set of books by a single author in the history of Christianity. During his last years, he suffered severe physical pain from a gout attack. He was growing increasing ill and died on 31 January 1892.
