1511562: The Forgotten Spurgeon The Forgotten Spurgeon
By Iain H. Murray

This book seeks to throw light on the reasons which have given rise to the superficial image of Spurgeon as a genial Victorian pulpiteer, a kind of grandfather of modern evangelicalism. Even before his death in 1892 newspapers and church leaders disputed over the features of his life which entitled him to fame. This book traces the main lines of Spurgeon's spiritual thought in connection with the three great controversies in his ministry.

By Iain H. Murray

26315: That Man of Granite with the Heart of a Child: J.C. Ryle That Man of Granite with the Heart of a Child: J.C. Ryle
By Eric Russell

J.C. Ryle's reputation as a pastor and leader grew until he was appointed the first Bishop of Liverpool, a post he held for 20 years. He was an author who is still in print today (he put aside royalties to pay his father's debts) and a man once described by his successor as "that man of granite with the heart of a child." He changed the face of the English church. Ryle stands as a colossus at the junction of two centures--a hundred years after his death he still stands as an example to church leaders today of how to combine leadership, a firm faith and compassion.

Wilson brings to life the complext man behind the different facets that the world saw.
