Publisher's Summary

A must-listen for anyone who loves God and their neighbor.

As an individual, you may ask, how can I, an average person, do anything to reach the lost? Or if a pastor, you may be discouraged and feel ineffective with your congregation, much less the world. Or perhaps you don't yet have a heart for the lost. Whatever your excuse, it's time to change. Overcome yourself and learn to make a difference in your church and the world around you. It's time to become an effective soul winner for Christ.

As Christians, our main business is to win souls. But, in Spurgeon's own words, "like shoeing-smiths, we need to know a great many things. Just as the smith must know about horses and how to make shoes for them, so we must know about souls and how to win them for Christ." Learn about souls, and how to win them, from one of the most acclaimed soul winners of all time.

In this book, Charles Spurgeon discusses:

  • The role of conviction
  • The need for holiness in the soul winner
  • Why simplicity is more effective
  • How to be interesting
  • How to pray for the lost
  • How to deal with failure
  • The role of discipleship
  • How to engage others to help

Now in modern English, with additional supporting scripture added in key areas.

Terrible narration

I couldn’t listen to this book because of the staccato type narration of the reader. I listen to audio books almost every day and this was the most unpleasant reader I have encountered.

The Book is a true Gem!

This is a book I will reread, and recommend. Would be a great book for required reading of any church staff.

Useful Content, Somewhat Archaic

No one can doubt that Spurgeon was an amazing teacher of ministers, and this book reflects his heart for such.

As far as usefulness, this book is and will always be a great heart check and much of the situational & speaking advice is still relevant even in the era of smartphones.

The text uses words which are out of common use and often filled with jargon, which the narration makes sound even more archaic. This makes it a little difficult to connect with at times, but it's not make-or-break - the book is still worth it for any Christian whose mind is on ministry.

Vintage Spurgeon

What a fantastic listen this was, and of course the narrator has a British accent so that made it even more wonderful, it's as close to hearing one of Spurgeon's sermons that I'll get in this life until I leet him in heaven. Spurgeon skillfully tackles several critical points of evangelism in this book, and I think every born again Christian should give it a listen. All glory to Christ our Lord and God who reigns on high forever!

One of the greats

Spurgeon is one of the great Christian theologians and I wish I was smart enough to track the whole way through. I found myself often having to go back and listen to understand what he was saying and/or what he meant. The more learned may enjoy this.

Quick, effective council.

Didn't realise it was short. Very sharp in practical advice. Enjoyed the section for Sunday school teachers.
