While C. H. Spurgeon is still remembered as being the most popular preacher of the Victorian era, it has generally been forgotten that the influence he exercised on fellow ministers and theological students was possibly an even greater factor in his life than his own personal ministry. That he organized a college, supervised the training of some 845 students, presided at an annual conference of ministers, and regarded all this as his 'life's labour and delight' are facts that are little known today.
Spurgeon's Lectures to my Students, contain the substance of Spurgeon's regular Friday afternoon addresses to the college students. This new complete and unabridged Banner edition, which has been newly typeset, contains all the lectures in the original first and second series, including The Minister's Self-Watch, The Preacher's Private Prayer, The Minister's Fainting Fits, The Holy Spirit in Connection with our Ministry, The Need of Decision for the Truth, and On Conversion as our Aim. Also included is a third series of lectures, originally published as The Art of Illustration, which focuses on the nature, use, and sources of illustrations and anecdotes in preaching.
To make this new edition as complete as possible, the publishers have also included Spurgeon's Commenting & Commentaries, which contains two further lectures and a fascinating and often humorously annotated catalogue of commentaries. This catalogue, compiled by Spurgeon after a review of some three to four thousand volumes, is anything but dull: calculated to produce enthusiasts for books, it also opens up a new world by its well-placed signposts to the riches of the past.

My 15 yr old son has been wanting this book by Spurgeon that was recommended in another book he was reading. When I bought my Morning and Evening devotional at a local store, we fell in love with Spurgeon's writings! After ordering Lectures to my Students, he kept asking and checking the mail waiting impatiently for the book to come in. He loves it and read it every day! He wants to go into youth ministry some day and just reads any good books he can get his hands on.
