For almost 160 years, Charles Haddon Spurgeon’s earliest sermons were lost to history. Thanks to Christian George and Spurgeon’s College, these powerful words from one of the world’s most popular preachers are now widely accessible to be read, studied, and enjoyed in the twelve volumes of the Lost Sermons of C. H. Spurgeon series.

This journal contains Spurgeon’s own inspirational words culled from these early sermons. On the page directly following each quote, you’ll find the source—the name and number of one of Spurgeon’s early sermons—for easy reference. In addition, the customizable table of contents at the front of the journal and the date feature at the top of each page allow you to keep your thoughts organized.

Whether you use your journal for writing sermons, taking notes, or daily journaling, allow Spurgeon’s stirring words to speak to your life today.


I love journals. I have a collection of journals that I would write my thoughts, projects or just doodles. I've also use them to jot down quotes from books or during church service from the preacher's sermons. In this leather edition of Spurgeon Journal, it is a beautiful and practical journal for this journal fanatic. The ruled lines are perfect for journaling or practicing your lettering. The pages are of great acid-free paper and the size of 8.25" x 5" x 0.6" thick is a lovely size to carry around. It also opens flat, which is very important for ease of writing. Know what I mean?

What makes this special is the collection of quotations from Charles H. Spurgeon's early sermons. It's not overpowering, but noted on some pages, and it always follow with where it's taken from. It's small on the bottom, and acts like a little reminder or something to ponder on.

A journal is very personal, and for me, this journal adds a touch of something special. Therefore, it'll be a great gift for yourself or for others.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92) was England's best-known preacher for most of the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1854, just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 20, became pastor of London's famed New Park Street Church (formerly pastored by the famous Baptist theologian John Gill). The congregation quickly outgrew their building, moved to Exeter Hall, then to Surrey Music Hall. In these venues Spurgeon frequently preached to audiences numbering more than 10,000—all in the days before electronic amplification. In 1861 the congregation moved permanently to the newly constructed Metropolitan Tabernacle.

  1. Nice! I love journals too. The ones that have Scripture or inspirational quotes are my favorites. TY for sharing your review of Spurgeon's journal.

    1. Me too Anne. I love those with inspirational quotes. I'm a big fan of the ones with literary quotes too, but I'm quite picky on those. Jane Austen & CS Lewis - most definitely.
