• “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”

The Life of Susannah Spurgeon by Charles Ray

PREFACE

It has been felt that a short biography of Mrs. C. H. Spurgeon would be appreciated by the many thousands who have received help through her Book Fund, and its auxiliary branches, and by the still greater number of persons who have been incited to increased efforts in the service of Christ through her inspiring efforts in the service of Christ through her inspiring example. Mrs Spurgeon was indeed a wonderful woman, and if this little book arouses interest in the Book Fund where hitherto its unique work was unknown, and encourages invalid Christians and others to take up some work for their Master by showing them the power of the weakest, it will have achieved its purpose.
