Sherry has put together a great combination here. Worship God through song and then listen to the Prince of Preachers preach. (I wish it was an actual recording of Mr. Spurgeon’s voice. A good reader will have to suffice.)
If you can’t make it to church, this is the next best thing!
Thanks for the reblog, Chris!
Have you heard Spurgeon’s voice? Or do you know if it has been recorded? I’m curious since I heard that his accent was “contemptible” Essex…I know what that sounds like and I’m sure I would not be able to understand a word of Spurgeon’s sermons had I been there to hear them! Then again, he was probably trained to lose the accent when speaking.
God bless you in all that you do for His Kingdom, by His power and for His glory, amen!
You’re welcome, Sherry. Thank you for the great material.
I think, until heaven, this is the closest we will ever get to hearing Spurgeon’s voice. Just follow the links:
I have heard that he could be understood by many people in open air settings as well as in large buildings without amplification, of course. He must not have been that difficult to listen to. You probably already know that he spoke to the highest and lowest in society.
If he did sound like his son, we would have easily understood him.
I have not done an in-depth study of what he sounded like. I’m mostly going off of what I’ve read in the past so I may be wrong.
Thank you so much for your very kind words. May God bless you as well for the wonderful blogs that you maintain.
Thanks! And thanks for the link! 🙂
You’re welcome. 🙂
Sometimes reading Spurgeon I can’t help but to wonder what did he sound like…
I’ve always had the same curiosity, Pastor Jim.
This link may help you a bit but it is not his voice. It is a recording of his son who many say sounded like him:
If you follow the links, there is a short recording of Mr. Spurgeon’s son, Thomas.
