Read full description of the books:
Living by Revealed Truth is a monumental biography of a mammoth figure in church history. But do we really need another book about Spurgeon? Yes, and I'll tell you why.
First, Spurgeon is almost inexhaustibly interesting. Even those who have read Spurgeon's Autobiography, Dallimore's A New Biography, and Murray's The Forgotten Spurgeon will not find this new work overly repetitive. Spurgeon's life and ministry were so full they have yet to be exhausted.
Second, Nettles' treatment of Spurgeon is doubly unique. To begin with he draws his material primarily from The Sword and the Trowel, a monthly magazine edited by Spurgeon and full of information. To my knowledge no one else has taken this approach and the result confirms its wisdom. In addition he emphasizes Spurgeon's pastoral theology (as the subtitle indicates). I have read a biography of a great preacher that left me thinking, 'but how did he shepherd his church day to day? What was their church membership practice like? How did he lead the church practically?' But this biography does not leave those kinds of questions unanswered and for that I am extremely grateful.
This is perhaps the most comprehensive work on Spurgeon to date (with the Autobiography taking a close second). And now that we have it, we are much the richer for it.
