Charles Spurgeon Prince of Preachers, a book review by Joel.

Christian Focus 4 Kids kindly sent me an e-book of ‘Charles Spurgeon Prince of Preachers’ which I have reviewed for them.  

Charles Spurgeon Prince of Preachers is a very well written book of historical fiction on the life of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, possibly one of the best preachers of all time.

Charles is a 15 year old boy on his way to church when a blizzard strikes he ends up in a small country church the stand in minister gives a very powerful message which would change Charles’ life forever. Charles grows up meeting many people, changing many lives and making history. Charles Spurgeon died in Meneton, France with gout.

I was interested to read this book because I have watched a film about Spurgeon and know a little about his life, also I have read about him in other books. I expected this book to be easy to read because I have read other trailblazer books from the series, it was indeed an easy read.

I liked the way the author wrote the book in a way that you felt you were the character and it was your life, also the author described the situations in Spurgeons life well.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wanted to know about Charles Spurgeon and the main events in his life, though as always with historical fiction it’s good to remember you are reading a story based on the history not ‘actual’ history.

Thank you Christian Focus for giving me the opportunity to read another book in this series.
