Thoughts of a Pastor-Historian

Tom Nettles on Charles Haddon Spurgeon

I was blessed to have Dr. Tom Nettles as my doctoral supervisor. Dr. Nettles has written what many consider to be the definitive treatment of the theology of the 19th century British Baptist pastor, Charles Haddon Spurgeon. His nearly 700 page volume was published last year with the title Living by Revealed Truth: The Life and Pastoral Theology of Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

Recently, I had the privilege of hosting Dr. Nettles at Farmdale Baptist Church. He preached in the morning service from James 1:1-18 (see here for audio). In the evening service, Dr. Nettles offered a lecture on Charles Haddon Spurgeon titled “Spurgeon: A Model of Consistency in a Time of Trouble” (audio below).
