View: 5105Volume 54 Sermons 3073-3124 Charles Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) is one of the church’s most famous preachers and Christianity’s foremost prolific writers. Called the “Prince of Preachers,” he was one of England's most notable ministers for most of the second half of the nineteenth century, and he still remains highly influential among Christians of different denominations today. His sermons have spread all over the world, and his many printed works have been cherished classics for decades. In his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to more than 10 million people, often up to ten times each week. He was the pastor of the congregation of the New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) in London for 38 years. He was an inexhaustible author of various kinds of works including sermons, commentaries, an autobiography, as well as books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns and more. Spurgeon was known to produce powerful sermons of penetrating thought and divine inspiration, and his oratory and writing skills held his audiences spellbound. Many Christians have discovered Spurgeon's messages to be among the best in Christian literature. Edward Walford wrote in Old and New London: Volume 6 (1878) quoting an article from the Times regarding one of Spurgeon’s meetings at Surrey: “Fancy a congregation consisting of 10,000 souls, streaming into the hall, mounting the galleries, humming, buzzing, and swarming—a mighty hive of bees—eager to secure at first the best places, and, at last, any place at all. After waiting more than half an hour—for if you wish to have a seat you must be there at least that space of time in advance—Mr. Spurgeon ascended his tribune. To the hum, and rush, and trampling of men, succeeded a low, concentrated thrill and murmur of devotion, which seemed to run at once, like an electric current, through the breast of every one present, and by this magnetic chain the preacher held us fast bound for about two hours. It is not my purpose to give a summary of his discourse. It is enough to say of his voice, that its power and volume are sufficient to reach every one in that vast assembly; of his language, that it is neither high-flown nor homely; of his style, that it is at times familiar, at times declamatory, but always happy, and often eloquent; of his doctrine, that neither the 'Calvinist' nor the 'Baptist' appears in the forefront of the battle which is waged by Mr. Spurgeon with relentless animosity, and with Gospel weapons, against irreligion, cant, hypocrisy, pride, and those secret bosom-sins which so easily beset a man in daily life; and to sum up all in a word, it is enough to say of the man himself, that he impresses you with a perfect conviction of his sincerity.” More than a hundred years after his death, Charles Spurgeon’s legacy continues to effectively inspire the church around the world. For this reason, Delmarva Publications has chosen to publish the complete works of Charles Spurgeon.

View: 5937Milton's participation in the history and politics of his time makes his works both exciting and difficult for students and scholars. This volume offers not only a newly-collated, scrupulously-edited old-spelling text of two of Milton's major poems, Paradise Regain'd and Samson Agonistes, but crucial information on the political, religious, print, and publishing milieu in which the poems appeared. New archival materials are used to show howMilton's volume appeared at a time of high tension with repressive measures against dissent, and disaffection with the extravagance of the court of Charles II and with his pro-French foreign policies. While teaching editions have all but ignored the material agents of publication, this edition examines Milton's poems aspart of a radical print network that continued to oppose the restored church and monarchy. Milton's publisher, John Starkey, is shown to be consistently sympathetic with republican and Machiavellian thought. Early readers not only linked Milton's poems with earlier literary texts but read them as commentary on their own times. Again, unlike teaching editions, this volume considers in detail the material process of producing the text and the many contributions made by the publisher andprinting house. This includes for the first time an analysis of the variant spelling as the work of multiple pressmen (or compositors). Finally, extensive notes provide word definitions and classical, biblical, geographical, and historical references helpful for students and scholars alike.
