Charles Simeon: An ordinary Pastor of Extraordinary InfluenceAlan Hill, via The Good Book Stall
This is a first rate biography about a man greatly used by God. Charles Simeon remained Pastor of just one church for over 50 years, yet his influence extended far and wide beyond his native England. Born to a privileged background in 1759, Simeon was converted whilst at the University of Cambridge, a town he made his home. He was ordained in the Church of England and soon saw great fruit from his ministry despite opposition from within his own church. Having found for himself, that there was no training on how to preach, he developed his own programme which he shared with others often over a cup of tea! He emphasised the need to preach clearly, simply and with Christ at the centre. Later he wrote a 21 volume series of sermon outlines that covered the whole Bible. It is still in print today. He also strongly supported missionary endeavours especially amongst the Jewish people.
This biography is very well written. It is an excellent analysis of his life and actions, highlighting his strengths and weaknesses. I particularly liked the chapter on Charles Simeon being a man of balance.
Those from an Anglican background will especially warm to this biography, but all evangelicals will enjoy reading this work. Here is a book to refresh your soul and invigorate your mind. Highly recommended.
