Spurgeon the Pastor | Ep. 59
Show Notes

If you’ve been around Reasonable Theology for any length of time you’ll have gathered that I greatly admire CH Spurgeon and share resources from his extensive ministry often.

So it is a great pleasure to welcome Dr. Geoff Chang to the podcast. Chang is curator of the Spurgeon Library at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and he’s the author of a new book Spurgeon The Pastor: Recovering a Biblical and Theological Vision for Ministry.

In this conversation we’ll talk about how Chang became academically interested in Spurgeon, the purpose of the Spurgeon Library at Midwestern, what Spurgeon was like as a pastor of a local church, and why he was able to avoid the pitfalls of being a celebrity pastor of a large church.

Along the way we’ll discuss how Spurgeon was able to accomplish so much and how this larger-than-life figure from church history can still be an encouragement to pastors of small churches.
