This is a blog dedicated to the ministry of Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892). A man who began preaching and pastoral ministry at Waterbeach in England at the age of 17 and moved to London to assume the pastorate at the New Park Street (later, the Metropolitan Tabernacle) at the age of 19 where he would minister for the next 38 years.
Spurgeon is called “the Prince of Preachers.” His influence is still felt through his writings and transcripts of sermons which are still being published even to this day.
My desire is this for us to discuss and just share in God’s gift to the church!
I serve as a pastor in Colorado and a PhD graduate from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City and am a lifelong Spurgeonophile. Feel free to come along and comment!

What does “MTP” mean in the bibliographies?
It means Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, the set of books where Spurgeon’s sermons are found from his time as pastor of the Metropolitan Tabernacle from 1855-1891. In other cases, you may see NPSP, which stands for New Park Street Pulpit where he pastored the New Park Street Chapel from 1853-1855 before the church moved to Elephant and Castle and was renamed Metropolitan Tabernacle.
