Publisher's Summary

"The old truth that Calvin preached, that Augustine preached, that Paul preached, is the truth that I must preach to-day, or else be false to my conscience and my God. I cannot shape the truth; I know of no such thing as paring off the rough edges of a doctrine. John Knox's gospel is my gospel. That which thundered through Scotland must thunder through England again." (C. H. Spurgeon)

A Defense of Calvinism is a classic text by Charles H. Spurgeon. This rendition is beautifully narrated by Bryan Nyman.

Essential primer

A short but poignant primer to Calvinism and the Reformed faith. If you are new, searching, or a critic, I advise you to listen to this book. Spurgeon is masterful in his use of language and dispels many of the myths (and heresies) wrongfully associated with the doctrines of grace.

I would say this is essential reading, but it's not too in depth on any given doctrine. If you have never read it, add it to your collection. If you are looking for a deeper dive, you'll need to go elsewhere. I finished this up in less than an hour.

No evidence

I am leaning towards being more of a Calvinist in my beliefs, and I was hoping Spurgeon would cite some Bible passages to support his beliefs, but I don’t honk he even mentioned one verse, and that is unfortunate because I was hoping this would be full of verses and not just his opinions an/or feelings.

great sermon

the content is great despite the poor reading ability of the reader - rather flat and monotone.

Excellent Sermon

An excellent sermon by Spurgeon however the narrator struggled with his reading of it. Still thought it was quite good.

Short

Interesting from the perspective of the person satisfactions, intellectual and emotional, that Spurgeon found in his “doctrine of grace.” However, readers will not find a well-reasoned defense, and Spurgeon is vague on why he does not consider himself a hyper-Calvinist, whatever that is.
