What Theologian Helmut Thielicke Advised About Charles Spurgeon: Spurgeon Short for March 23, 2022
“I am almost tempted to shout out to those who are serving the eternal Word as preachers, and to those who are preparing to do so, in what I hope will be a productive hyperbole: Sell all that you have (not least of all some of your stock of current sermonic literature) and buy Spurgeon (even if you have to grub through the second-hand bookstores). And even if you do not take all of the counsels of your ministry, let him be a Socrates who helps you to find your own way.”
