Spurgeon’s road to the pulpit

When Spurgeon was 15, a snowstorm forced him to take refuge in a Primitive Methodist chapel. There he heard the passage that began his walk with God: Isaiah 45:22.

He was baptized soon after, and started teaching Sunday school. In the winter of 1850–51, he preached his first sermon. When Spurgeon was only 19, he was invited to preach at London’s famous New Park Street Chapel—at the time, the largest Baptist congregation in London. He quickly became a household name, and people traveled to hear him preach.

Persisting through trials

Along with fame came criticism. His preaching was plain-spoken and direct; not everyone appreciated his style. But, despite negative remarks, Spurgeon kept on preaching and impacting thousands.

By the end of 1856, though, tragedy stuck: while Spurgeon was preaching, someone in the crowd yelled “Fire!” The ensuing panic and stampede left several dead, and Spurgeon was devastated. The event had a deep influence on the rest of his life: he struggled with depression for many years, and even spoke of being brought to tears for no apparent reason.

But still his preaching ministry continued.

In 1861, Spurgeon’s congregation moved to the newly constructed Metropolitan Tabernacle, which seated 5,000 people and offered standing room for another 1,000. In addition to his preaching, Spurgeon founded the Stockwell Orphanage, which continued in London until it was bombed in the Second World War. (The orphanage became Spurgeon’s Child Care, which still exists today.)

Spurgeon continued to suffer from depression, in addition to a combination of rheumatism, gout, and Bright’s disease. Yet he kept preaching through June 7, 1891, less than eight months before his death.

Charles Spurgeon left a lasting impact not only on the people around him, but also on all of us who—years later—have learned from his insight.

Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Machen’s Ordination with Discounts on His Works

J.G.MachenToday is the 100th anniversary of J. Gresham Machen’s ordination. To celebrate, you can use coupon code MACHEN2014 to get 33% off the J. Gresham Machen Collection!

Who was J. Gresham Machen?

John Gresham Machen (July 28, 1881–January 1, 1937) was a professor of New Testament at Princeton Seminary from 1915 to 1929. After arguing against the emerging modernist theology at Princeton, Machen became one of the principal founders of Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, where he taught until his death. Machen is considered the last of the great Princeton Theologians (after Archibald Alexander, Charles Hodge, A.A. Hodge, and B.B. Warfield), and his works reflect their tradition of conservative Calvinist orthodoxy.

Machen’s influence can be felt today through the existence of the institutions he founded—Westminster Theological Seminary and the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. In addition, his textbook on basic New Testament Greek is still used in many seminaries, including schools in the Presbyterian Church USA.

Get 33% off a selection of his works

2014Machen_Promo_Blog400x400To celebrate, through July 7, we’re giving you 33% off the J. Gresham Machen Collection! Just use coupon code MACHEN2014 to get your discount.

You’ll get 20 of his most influential sermons: What Is Faith, Christianity and Liberalism, The Origin of Paul’s Religion, and others. Throughout these resources, Machen illuminates the Bible’s teachings on the foundational tenets of the Christian faith.

Get 15% Off a Massive, Interconnected Library

L5_NewBPCampaign_620x175

Logos 5 is more than just a collection of books. It’s a massive, interconnected library paired with tools and features that you can’t find anywhere else.

Why Logos books are so valuable

Think of it this way: the value of a book by itself (physical or digital) is purely in the information it carries. But when you link two books together—a link between a citation and the book it cites, a Greek text that scrolls in sync with the English translation—you increase the value of each. This means the whole of your library is exponentially more valuable than the sum of its parts. We call this the “Network Effect.”Library Connections

When you buy a base package, you get a library that’s integrated with data, smart tools, and a clean, fast interface to access everything. All your books are interconnected, which means more cross-references between books, more valuable original-language data, and more relevant results in the reports you run—the Passage Guide, Exegetical Guide, Bible Word Study, and more.

Not only do Logos books create an extensive network of information—they make up a growing ecosystem of platforms tying Bible study together. You can use your Logos library for study, discuss rich passages with your Faithlife community, or easily share quotes and passages with your congregation via Proclaim.

Take 15% off a new base package

When it comes to putting together an interconnected library of smart books, a base package is the best place to start.

Right now, you can get a new base package for 15% off—get yours today!
