INSIDE SOURCE Book Review: "The Forgotten Spurgeon," by Iain H. Murray

BOOK REVIEWED: "The Forgotton Spurgeon," by Iain H. Murray
REVIEWER: Thomas Chantry
EXCERPT FROM THE REVIEW (click link below to read review in its entirety): "The Forgotten Spurgeon is not a standard biography; rather, Murray concentrates on three important controversies which spanned Spurgeon's career - the confllicts with Hyper-Calvinism and Arminianism in the opening years of his London ministry, the dispute with Anglicans over Baptismal Regeneration in the mid 1860s, and the struggle for theological faithfulness and integrity that so marked the closing years of Spurgeon's life, the 'Downgrade Controversy' ....
The Forgotten Spurgeon also serves as an excellent example of the strengths of Iain Murray's historical writings - strengths which continue to be seen in the books he has penned since this one first appeared in the 1960s....
The author's style is easy and will be attractive to most Christian readers. Those who love the history of the church will find his books particularly helpful and enjoyable. If you have not read Iain Murray before, then The Forgotten Spurgeon is a good place to start. You will not be disappointed!"
