Around the Wicket Gate
Charles Spurgeon was a 19th century London preacher. He had a revolutionary appeal in his radical preaching, standing up against liberal theology of the time. When he preached, he drew amazing numbers of people to hear him. His language and his style were great talents.
His sermons and his commentaries are valuable to all Christians even today. He wrote a book called Around the Wicket Gate.
It addressed the issues of being a lukewarm Christian. He addresses those who want to know Jesus, want to approach God, but haven’t made any “moves”. The book is for those who he says “linger outside the gate” – resisting His call, suffering from doubts or fears.
Even though the book is written in the 19th century, so it obviously has a Victorian ring – but it is not difficult at all to understand. On the contrary, it is one of the books that all Christians will enjoy and should share with others.
