 Candles made a relevant object lesson because they commonly illuminated homes and churches. Spurgeon presents many different kinds of candles, their accessories, their history and their uses, and teaches a corresponding spiritual lesson. Some examples include: “Grace is like the light of a candle helping those around it,” “Bibles which are never read are like lanterns which are never turned on,” and “Always put the weaker brother in the place of honor if you can, and thus make the best use of his light.” This book is richly illustrated to help explain the concepts.

About the author (2014)

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834–1892) was born in Kelvedon, England. He came from a strong Christian family and he developed a love for reading books. At fifteen, a stormy day changed his plans and he went to a Methodist chapel in Colchester, where the service was almost given up for low attendance. At this service the message was look to Jesus to be saved, and he became a Christian. He never went to college, but he became a scholar through self-study. His parents were Congregationalists but he saw the need for Baptism after he read the Bible. He preached his first sermon at Teversham in Cambridgeshire and people began to respect him. The New Park Street Chapel in London was deserted and the young man from Cambridge was recommended. Spurgeon thought it a mistake and that he would not be fit for London. He was “borne down with a sense of weakness.” His preaching was blessed with great success of effect and attendance. Soon the need of a much larger building was needed and the Metropolitan Tabernacle was built in 1861. He became a well-known preacher and is regarded as the “Prince of Preachers.”
