Publisher's Summary

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 listeners. 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. Susie is an inspiring and encouraging account of a truly remarkable woman of faith that will delight Spurgeon devotees and fans of Christian biographies alike.  

“I am writing in my husband’s study, where he thought, and prayed, and wrote. Every inch of the place is sacred ground. Everything remains precisely as he left it. His books (now my most precious possessions), stand in shining rows upon the shelves, in exactly the order in which he placed them, and one might almost fancy the room was ready and waiting for its master. But oh! That empty chair! That great portrait over the door! The strange, solemn silence, which pervades the place now that he is no longer on earth! I kneel sometimes by his chair, and laying my head on the cushioned arms, which so long supported his dear form, I pour out my grief before the Lord, and tell Him again that though I am left alone, yet I know that ‘He hath done all things well’....”

An absolutely wonderful “read”.

This book was so well written and the narrator did a fantastic job. I learned so much and was so deeply convicted in areas of my life that Susie’s simple Christ-following manner exposes in my own heart. My husband is in seminary to be a pastor and the treasures from her own life will greatly benefit me as I purpose to put them into practice in advance of my husband’s ministry. Susannah Spurgeon has been greatly endeared to my heart and I look forward to meeting her in person in heaven.
