I am a voracious reader, usually going through a couple of books a week. I am embarassed to admit, though, I've never read any Charles Spurgeon. I intend to remedy this. Could anyone please recommend a few of his works I should start with? Usually if I read a new author and like him I spend the next couple of months reading their entire catalogue and I hope that's the case with Spurgeon. Thanks for any help you can provide.

I'd start with his sermons... which you can find for free on this website.

I love Spurgeon's sermons... hope you enjoy!

if you don't mind reading online, you can read his book "All Of Grace" here: http://www.biblebb.com/files/spurgeon/all_of_g.htm

and here's another great place to go to for his sermons: http://www.biblebb.com/spurgeon.htm

in fact, the whole website "Bible Bulletin Board" is fantastic, not just for Charles Spurgeon but for many others: http://www.biblebb.com/index.htm

Spurgeon's Devotional Bible is good too. He puts comments in the daily Bible reading and ends with a hymn verse.

His audio sermons along with many others are at this site well worth visiting:

I use his book Morning and Evening as a devotional aid sometimes. Spurgeon's superb. I also recommend the Arnold Dallimore biography; it really opened my eyes to how astonishing Spurgeon was. He wasn't 'just' a preacher; his orphanage work was phenomenal.
