Collection Description

Biographical Note

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, born in 1834, was a Baptist minister in Great Britain. He was famous for his preaching skills and, from the time he was a young man, attracted thousands of people to hear his sermons. A prolific author, Spurgeon’s published sermons were very popular. He held strict Calvinistic views and, therefore, alienated himself from some Baptist ministers. Despite his controversial views, he remained a popular speaker. Spurgeon died in 1892 after suffering from gout.

Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of two letters from Spurgeon to a Reverend W. H. I. Page. In the letters, dated September 18, 1889 and March 3, 1890 Spurgeon discusses his ideas for a book on the history of religion and the Reformation in Great Britain. He also writes of his declining health, Page’s health, and the Book of Proverbs.
