Item Description...
Overview
The impact of Charles Haddon Spurgeon continues to inspire evangelical leaders a century and a half after his death. The nineteenth century "Prince of Preachers" demonstrated leadership ability that remains pertinent and applicable today. Spurgeon pastored the first mega-church, the Metropolitan Tabernacle (Baptist) in London, preaching to over 5,000 worshipers weekly. He wrote dozens of books that still remain in print, began in college to train pastors, founded an orphanage, and made generous donations to more than twenty-five organizations. The friend of prime ministers and future presidents, he was able to communicate with the common person. This in-depth look at Spurgeon and his writings includes leadership principles, methods, teachings, and practical innovations, allowing Spurgeon a voice in Christian issues in the current socio-politico-religious setting.

Leadership Under God's Tutelage  Nov 10, 2007
Michaels draws from the life of the great Baptist preacher, Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Leadership can be styled by worldly means, or, its complete antithesis, by means of grace. Spurgeon is an excellent portrayal of the latter.

A lack of formal institutionary training reveals this point all the more. Spurgeon was enabled solely by the grace of God. Apparently, before he stepped onto the podium to preach each time, he would say: 'Lord, have mercy on me, the sinner.' Humility was not a virtue found wanting in Spurgeon, and that offsets his leadership style in comparison with the mega-church gurus of our day. Spurgeon - being a staunch Calvinist - believed in and preached the depravity of man.

Michaels draws biblical principles from this godly man's life and informs us of the essential Christian character traits desired from laity, deacons, elders and pastors/ministers in God's service. Spurgeon's said:

'We are imperfect a band of men as might be found, but we are one in Christ.' pg 172

'Our chief end is to glorify God. We do not regard it as our first business to convert sinners, not to edify saints; but to glorify God.' pg 31

My criticism of this book comes in the form of the author's support for Jerry Falwell, Rick Warren and extensive gleanings of John Maxwell, who definitely is polarized from Spurgeon. These men were the exact examples Spurgeon warned and warred against in his Downgrade Controversy.

Cast out the bad, the very bad, and you will be left with only the good - Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
 
Appreciation for Spurgeon continues to grow with this book!  May 30, 2007
Great book - well-written leadership book using the life, writings and influence of one of the great saints of the faith as his foundation and backdrop, author Larry Michael not only exposes the reader to Charles Haddon Spurgeon, but also explains how God used this man to literally change the world around him for the glory of God! I've always had a fascination with Spurgeon, especially as a Christian raised in the Reformed tradition now belonging to a Baptist church, Spurgeon has been the common link between these two worlds - wholly devoted to doctrine and the sovereignty of God while passionately evangelical providing leadership through service even unto the least of these. The life and ministry of Spurgeon is a picture of a man entirely sold out to God for His glory and for His pleasure. Spurgeon was a man's man and God's man at the same time - what you saw was what you got...and that was a robust, honest, intelligent, passionate, compassionate, animated, serious man of faith.

Michael does a great job of really pulling from the life and ministry of Spurgeon some excellent points of application not only for those in ministry, but for everyone who is called to be a "minister" of the gospel of Christ (all believers). The book is a great read for every parent, businessman, missionary, pastor, lawyer, teacher, musician...the list goes on and on. Spurgeon was a man of highest integrity who lived the same on Monday as he preached about on Sunday. His passion for the orphans of England was matched by his passion to train up another generation of godly young men to preach and teach others God's Word - and he was not merely a man of ideas or words, he was a man of action putting feet to his faith in countless ways.

I hope more people are captured by the life of this incredible man whose life goal was to introduce as many people to the saving knowledge of Christ as possible - and with this book, Larry Michael continues the legacy of Spurgeon for another generation!
 
Lessons from the Prince of Preachers  Nov 5, 2003
Samuel Brengel, a great Salvation Army evangelist wrote: "The final estimate of men shows that history cares not an iota for the rank or title a man has borne, or the office he has held, but only the quality of his deeds and the character of his mind and heart." Never has a man proved this more true than Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Larry J. Michael reminds us that Spurgeon decided against formal theological education and ordination early in his ministry. Yet this man who rejected titles such as Reverend and called human ordination, "empty hands on empty heads," has been given the title of Prince of Preachers by the generations that have followed him.

Many of of our readers will probably ask, "Do we really need another book about Spurgeon?" Once you read Spurgeon on Leadership, you will certainly be thankful that Larry Michael believed there was such a need. This is not a biography but rather a study in the leadership style of the most influential Baptist in the last two hundred years.

The first twelve chapters define the characteristics of Spurgeon's leadership style that set him apart from the crowd. Those characteristics are:

The last two chapters focus on current events in Spurgeon's world and ours and how Christian leadership can respond to those challenges.

Spurgeon On Leadership is a highly practical book. Each chapter ends with a list of leadership lessons we can learn from Spurgeon. For example in the chapter on creativity we are given this leadership lesson: "The message of the gospel does not change, but the manner of its presentation may be adapted according to the situation. Spurgeon said, "I am not very scrupulous about the means I use for doing good ... I would preach standing on my head, if I thought I could convert your souls." (p. 151)

Everyone can benefit from this book. Whether you are an official leader in your church or sit on the back row of your Sunday School class there is much to learn here. You will be surprised by some of the things you learn about Spurgeon and yourself along the way.

Perhaps the most refreshing thing about Spurgeon On Leadership is that we are reminded of what God wants to do with each of us. Our thanks go out to Dr. Michael for encouraging us to think big thoughts about God and for His work. Spurgeon refused to be forced into other people's boxes and so should we! Let us be what God wants us to be and do it with the gusto that Charles H. Spurgeon did.
