Lewis, John, "Insights from Charles Spurgeon's Preaching for a Changing Culture" (2012). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 548.
This project has been done in order to increase the amount of literature available that demonstrates how to preach to a 21st century culture and to enlighten preachers to the timeless truths that transcend from the great 19th century preacher Charles Spurgeon. A close evaluation of Charles Spurgeon's biblical preaching reveals a model for pastors to emulate in a post-modern context in the local church. Spurgeon was a master communicator and a survey of his mid to late 1800's preaching reveals those areas of his ministry that are still useful in the New Millennium. By reviewing Spurgeon's sermons and writings, pastors can learn from and effectively apply today many of the methods and techniques that were utilized by this great preacher over a century ago.
