Sermons by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Called the "Prince of Preachers," Charles Spurgeon was a world-renowned preacher. At the young age of 22, Spurgeon was already preaching to audiences of over 10,000 people. Coming from a Reformed Baptist tradition, he emphasized the gospels and the demands of Christ upon believers' lives in his sermons.

Spurgeon's sermons have been a popular and frequently downloaded work from the CCEL collection. Although CCEL does not have all of Spurgeon's 63 volumes of sermons (each containing about 50 sermons) we have around 95% of the sermons. His sermons are never unduly complex or flowery, but immensely practical and encouraging. They are full of wit and concrete examples. Countless people throughout the world have profited from Spurgeon's moving words.

Note: This version also contains a scriptural index, for easy reference.

In addition to downloadable and online versions of these sermons, Leighton Garner has agreed to record a handful of these sermons, and the first of these MP3 sermons is available here.
