The definitive biography of Susannah Spurgeon.
While many Christians recognize the name of Charles H. Spurgeon, the beloved preacher and writer, few are familiar with the life and legacy of his wife, Susie. Yet Susannah Spurgeon was an accomplished and devout woman of God who had a tremendous ministry in her own right, as well as in support of her husband. Even while dealing with serious health issues, she administered a book fund for poor pastors, edited and published her husband’s sermons and other writings, led a pastor’s aid ministry, wrote five books, made her home a hub of hospitality, and was instrumental in planting a church. And as her own writing attests, she was also a warm, charming, and fascinating woman.
Now, for the first time, Susie brings this vibrant woman’s story to modern readers. Ray Rhodes Jr. examines Susannah’s life, showing that she was not only the wife of London’s most famous preacher, but also a woman who gave all she had in grateful service to the Lord.
Want More From Your Prayer Life?
If you’re dissatisfied in your prayer life, wanting to be more consistent in prayer, or looking to deepen your intimacy with God, then this 8-week Bible study was written for you. It examines the prayers of eight biblical characters and teaches you how to pray like the prayer warriors who went before you. You’ll study:
Jesus: A Model Prayer
Paul: A Prayer of Intercession
Job: A Prayer of Despair
Hannah: A Prayer of Longing
David: A Prayer of Lament
Asa: A Prayer of Seeking God
Jehoshaphat: A Prayer of Dependence
Nehemiah: A Prayer of Boldness
Follow in the footsteps of these spiritual giants and discover anew what our loving God does with a little faith and a whole lot of prayer. You’ll love studying these scriptural prayers, like the prayer of Asa:
Then Asa called to the Lord his God and said, “Lord, there is no one besides You to help in the battle between the powerful and those who have no strength; so help us, O Lord our God, for we trust in You, and in Your name have come against this multitude. O Lord, You are our God; let not man prevail against You.” (2 Chron. 14:11)
What to do when they say they’re Christian but don’t know Jesus
Whether it’s the Christmas and Easter Christians or the faithful church attenders whose hearts are cold toward the Lord, we’ve all encountered cultural Christians. They’d check the Christian box on a survey, they’re fine with church, but the truth is, they’re far from God. So how do we bring Jesus to this overlooked mission field?
The Unsaved Christian equips you to confront cultural Christianity with honesty, compassion, and grace, whether you’re doing it from the pulpit or the pews. This practical guide will:
show you how to recognize cultural Christianity
teach you how to overcome the barriers that get in the way
give you easy-to-understand advice about VBS, holiday services, reaching “good people,” and more!
If you’ve ever felt stuck or unsure how to minister to someone who identifies as Christian but still needs Jesus, this book is for you.
Expand and round out your collection of Colin Smith’s popular series to understanding and unlocking the mysteries of the Bible with 10 Keys to Unlock the Christian Life. “Your Word have I hidden in my heart,” says the psalmist. The Word in your heart allows you to discover who you are in Christ, what He has called you to do, and how He empowers you to live “the Christian life”. Those of traditional beliefs, as well as those who are postmodern in thought and practice, will be encouraged and challenged.
It didn’t take long for Tyler to realize he had no idea how to be married.
When Tyler and Analee got married, they read marriage books, learned about each other’s personality and habits, and exhausted three-step relational formulas. Yet a year and a half after their wedding, they had fallen into a pattern of fighting and unhappiness.
Tyler knew that he and his wife needed more than formulas and counseling sessions. They needed a vision for marriage that extended beyond just finding happiness and falling in love. They wanted a vision that dealt with the realities of life and gave them a picture of marriage worth fighting for.
As a business professional who helps companies “rebrand” when their image doesn’t match up with their identity, Tyler realized that marriage has an image that doesn’t match up to what God designed it to be.
Marriage Rebranded will help you replace four modern misconceptions about marriage with more timeless perspectives enlightened by biblical, personal, and historical studies.
We need to rethink our modern brand of matrimony. It’s time for us to develop a new vision for marriage—a vision that’s worth fighting for.
