“The times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord have at last dawned upon ourland,” so Spurgeon wrote at the end of 1859. Throughout the Sundays of that year — perhaps the greatest and most fruitful in his long ministry — he had preached in London to a congregation of some 8,000 people besides addressing, almost daily, vast multitudes in different places.
The sermons in this paperback are all taken from 1859 and show the vigorous, fervent proclamation of the gospel which made Spurgeon’s preaching what it was.

Scotland’s 18th-century religious revival will ever be associated with Cambuslang, a parish near Glasgow, where in March, 1742, “a spark of grace set the kingdom on a blaze.” For long years prior to that time, as a contemporary wrote, “many Christians were tempted to think that the Holy Spirit’s mighty operations upon the souls of men by the preaching of the gospel, belonged only to the first ages of Christianity.”
Dr. Fawcett’s fascinating research sets the whole story in context and brings it all vividly to life.
