Charles Spurgeon is a favorite preacher of mine--his legacy has reached millions! But did you know that there is actually a book about his wife, Susannah? It is called Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon.
This book is normally $19.99 but is on sale right now for just $1.99 on Kindle! The hardcover is on sale too.
Here is a quick description of the book for you:
"The definitive biography of Susannah Spurgeon.
While many Christians recognize the name of Charles H. Spurgeon, the beloved preacher and writer, few are familiar with the life and legacy of his wife, Susie. Yet Susannah Spurgeon was an accomplished and devout woman of God who had a tremendous ministry in her own right, as well as in support of her husband. Even while dealing with serious health issues, she administered a book fund for poor pastors, edited and published her husband’s sermons and other writings, led a pastor’s aid ministry, wrote five books, made her home a hub of hospitality, and was instrumental in planting a church. And as her own writing attests, she was also a warm, charming, and fascinating woman.
Now, for the first time, Susie brings this vibrant woman’s story to modern readers. Ray Rhodes Jr. examines Susannah’s life, showing that she was not only the wife of London’s most famous preacher, but also a woman who gave all she had in grateful service to the Lord.
Susie is an inspiring and encouraging account of a truly remarkable woman of faith that will delight Spurgeon devotees and fans of Christian biographies alike.
“I am writing in my husband’s study, where he thought, and prayed, and wrote. Every inch of the place is sacred ground. Everything remains precisely as he left it. His books (now my most precious possessions), stand in shining rows upon the shelves, in exactly the order in which he placed them, and one might almost fancy the room was ready and waiting for its master. But oh! That empty chair! That great portrait over the door! The strange, solemn silence, which pervades the place now that he is no longer on earth! I kneel sometimes by his chair, and laying my head on the cushioned arms, which so long supported his dear form, I pour out my grief before the Lord, and tell Him again that though I am left alone, yet I know that ‘He hath done all things well’…”
Here is what one reviewer had to say:
"I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked up. Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon, wife of Charles H. Spurgeon. The author, Ray Rhodes, is a friend. We have been acquainted for 20 years or so. I had no idea that he was such an excellent writer! I have been a fan of C. H. Spurgeon for as long as I can remember, so anything connected with him was of immediate interest to me. What a joy it was to read this volume and learn about the sweet relationship between this eminent pastor and his wife. I laughed, sighed, wept, and rejoiced as I read this volume. My life is the better for it. It is a wonderful read, hard to put down once when you get started. Thank you, dear friend, for writing this superb volume on the life of Susannah Spurgeon. And thank you Moody Publishers for printing this volume. We need more books like this one."
