In honor of the 121st anniversary of the death of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Stephen McCaskell posts a list of 32 Things You Might Not Know About Charles Spurgeon.
Some of the facts mention his reading habits (usually about 6 books each week; having read Pilgrim’s Progress 100 times in his life). His phenomenal productivity (his preaching alone is published in 63 volumes consisting of 20-25 million words) is partly the result of 18 hour work days. But Spurgeon would be sure to credit the grace of God as the main cause. This is even more evident when it is remembered that he did not live long (he lived from 1834 to 1892) and he suffered extended periods of debilitating illness.
McCaskell’s blog is an interesting perspective on one of God’s giants in history.
