Free audio book download

This month it's an unabridged edition of All of Grace, by a man who, for once, actually deserves his nickname: the Prince of Preachers, m'man, Charles H. Spurgeon.

How providential!

Spurgeon's book seems to cover everything we all have been discussing (and I've been meditating over) these last few days and weeks: the Gospel; the Cross; grace; prayer; perseverance; justification; sanctification...well, the whole nine yards! The whole kit and kaboodle!

Thank you for mentioning this, for I would never have known about it otherwise.

Oh, and the timing is especially providential because I only figured out how to listen to mp3 files on my phone a couple of weeks ago, which sustains me on my 4-hour-by-bus-per-day commute. I've already been blessed by the preaching of Sproul, Dever, Duncan, Woodhouse, and Carson in that short time. [Yeah, a couple of those are Presbyterians, but what can you do? (I jest! God bless them!)]

The very first Spurgeon I read, in fact. Might fish it out before bed..

Thanks for the link Dan, I look forward to listening to it this evening.

"The law is for the self-righteous, to humble their pride: the gospel is for the lost, to remove their despair."

There are no words sufficient to encompass such an amazing truth as that.

"The doctrine of the atonement is to my mind one of the surest proofs of the divine inspiration of Holy Scripture. Who would or could have thought of the just Ruler dying for the unjust rebel? This is no teaching of human mythology, or dream of poetical imagination. This method of expiation is only known among men because it is a fact; fiction could not have devised it. God Himself ordained it; it is not a matter which could have been imagined."

There's presuppositionalism for you! And to think that someone's "deconversion" testimony would have brought into such sharp relief (for me, at least) just what it is that sets Biblical faith apart from all other belief systems.

"The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10:45)

"I came not to call the righteous, but sinners." (Mark 2:17)

"The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost." (1 Timothy 1:15)

To God alone belong all praise and dominion and glory, forever and ever. Amen.

Hey, thanks for posting this! I haven't been over there to see the free monthly offering lately. And I just started reading this for the first time last weekend.

Do you know if it's possible to download this without creating an account? I hate when web sites do this for a one-time purchase, as I try really hard to limit the number of times my name and email is splattered all over the cyber-realm.

A Musician by Grace

I've written a review of the printed version of this book recently. Antidote to all fluff-filled modern 'Christian' self-help books in the world. Solid meat that won't give indigestion. This is simply one of the best books on the Gospel in existence. I gave a copy to my younger brother who's just gone off to University. Thank you, Dan, for bringing this to everyone's attention.

High praise for the book, coming from you, HH. Thanks! Oddly, in all my CHS reading, this is one I haven't read yet. I'm looking forward to it. Of all the preachers and writers I love, no one speaks words of grace and Christ's glory to my heart as Spurgeon does.

Highland Host said...

Dan. It is an unfounded rumour that I grew my beard to look more like Spurgeon. 'All of Grace' is only a little book (something a part-time reviewer is very glad of), and sometimes overlooked. It shouldn't be, it's Spurgeon's summary of the Gospel.
