Spurgeon's works are as popular now as they have ever been in modern times, but one fact many of his fans either do not recognize or know is that he was a very staunch Calvinist. In this brief address, Spurgeon stakes out his belief in the sovereignty of God, while defining his Calvinism against both Hyper-Calvinism and Arminianism, though certainly not in extreme depths of detail. Spurgeon's eloquence and passion still thunders through years, as he explains just how he sees the Doctrines of Grace as of supreme importance in properly understanding the Bible and embracing the full, true nature of Christ.
Potential buyers should understand that this is essentially a booklet; it is of a smaller size, and consists of excerpts from Spurgeon's writings elsewhere. A reader will probably navigate this in 30-45 minutes, perhaps less, but that does not discount the value of what this is. Do not expect a full Systematic Theology or an exceedingly in-depth look at the tenets of Calvinism. This is a brief testimony and explanation of Spurgeon's position on this key topic. If you or a friend were unsure of Spurgeon's strong feelings on Reform Theology, or simply wish to gain a few well-written points in defense of the same, you would certainly benefits from reading this short work.
