John Ploughman’s Talks – in audio
“In John Ploughman’s Talk, I have written for plowmen and common people. Hence refined taste and dainty words have been discarded for strong proverbial expressions and homely phrases. I have aimed my blows at the vices of the many, and tried to inculcate those moral virtues without which men are degraded. Much that needs to be said to the toiling masses would not well suit the pulpit and the Sabbath; these lowly pages may teach thrift and industry all the days of the week in the cottage and the workshop; and if some learn these lessons I shall not repent the adoption of a rustic style. “Ploughman is a name I may justly claim. Every minister has put his hand to the plow; and it is his business to break up the fallow ground. That I have written in a semi-humorous vein needs no apology, since thereby sound moral teaching has gained a hearing from at least 300,000 persons. There is no particular virtue in being seriously unreadable.” – C. H. Spurgeon

The Rise and Progress of Religion in the Soul
Said Spurgeon of this book: And then how many souls may be converted by what some men are privileged to write and print. There is “Dr. Doddridge’s Rise and Progress of Religion.” Though I decidedly object to some things in it, I could wish that everybody read that book, so many have been the conversions it has produced.
Spurgeon on Roman Catholicism
A Dead Calm or a Necessary Storm?
Flowers from a Puritan’s Garden
Matthew (The Gospel of the Kingdom)
Pilgrim’s Progress–a free online e-book. Spurgeon occasionally mentions the characters of this book in his devotionals
The Celestial Railroad-though not quoted by Spurgeon this is a wonderful add-on read to Pilgrim’s Progress and makes an analogy to our modern “Christianity”
Charles H. Spurgeon and the Nation of Israel
Come Ye Children
Samuel Rutherford’s Letters Of Rutherford’s Letters, Spurgeon said this: “Let it be known that Spurgeon counted Rutherford’s Letters as the nearest thing to inspiration in all human literature.”

Geese in the Hood review:
An interesting read:
FTA: Spurgeon had two goals then. One was to build up the body of Christ, and the other was to defend from outside attacks. If Spurgeon’s trowel was drawn for the purpose of sculpting the members of his flock into mature Christian men and women, his sword was drawn for the purpose of protecting them from outside marauders who seek to steal and destroy. Much of the time, his sword was pointed squarely at Rome.
In Spurgeon’s writings, we see the anguish of a pastor who had lost sheep to Rome’s advances. We see a preacher with absolutely no fear of the Establishment, and no concern for offense by the preaching of the Gospel. God will save whom He will, and that through the preaching of the Word. We see in Spurgeon a man who knew he would be held to account for the position in which God had placed him; so, like we see in Paul’s tears at Miletus, we also see in Spurgeon a drive to make sure that he “kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house” (Acts 20:20). Spurgeon knew that exposing Rome was an important part of what was profitable to his flock’s well being.
There are, of course, some who will say that Spurgeon lived in a different time, a time when anti-Romanism was fashionable, and that with all of today’s social concerns, even Spurgeon might be driven to reconsider his position. But Spurgeon knew that there was only one true social issue of which all the rest were merely a subset: the depravity of man. The question which Spurgeon knew to ask–and we wish that Christian’s today would ask it–was, “What is the solution to man’s total depravity?” The answer, of course, is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and Spurgeon knew well enough that Rome did not have it. If Rome could not save the souls of men, then she could not save humanity from the effects of its own depraved nature.
