Charles Haddon Spurgeon, born in 1834, was a Baptist minister in Great Britain. He was famous for his preaching skills and, from the time he was a young man, attracted thousands of people to hear his sermons. A prolific author, Spurgeon's published sermons were very popular. He held strict Calvinistic views and, therefore, alienated himself from some Baptist ministers. Despite his controversial views, he remained a popular speaker. Spurgeon died in 1892 after suffering from gout.
This collection consists of two letters from Spurgeon to a Reverend
W.H.I. Page. In the letters, dated 18 September 1889 and 3 March
1890 Spurgeon discusses his ideas for a book on the history of religion
and the Reformation in Great Britain. He also writes of his declining
health, Page's health, and the Book of Proverbs.
