The New Testament abounds with men and women of God, and the great 19th century English preacher Charles Spurgeon reveals their faith, failures and lessons in these readable character studies that have application to our own lives and generation. The men and women of the New Testament have left us a great spiritual legacy, and in Men and Women of the New Testament Spurgeon sketches these lives in vivid detail and with remarkable clarity. The thirty-eight character studies in this collection include prominent figures like Paul and Timothy as well as unnamed Biblical characters like the Woman of Samaria and Pilate's Wife.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1894) converted to Christianity at the age of fifteen. By the time he was twenty-two, he was the most popular preacher of his time. He frequently spoke to crowds numbering over 10,000 in the days before electronic amplification. A prolific writer, many of Spurgeon's works remain in print to this day.
