Charles Spurgeon's success as a
legendary preacher and author was generated from his intense love and
concern for "working people." In John Ploughman's Talks, Spurgeon
assumes the persona of a simple ploughman to dispense advice and
address serious moral issues in the language of the common man.
Spurgeon's homespun humor and rustic illustrations reflect on a variety
of issues, such as idleness, grumbling, appearance, patience, gossiping,
debt, spending, family, hope, and much more.
In Spurgeon's words, "That I have written in a semi-humorous vein
needs no apology, since thereby sound moral teaching has gained a
hearing….There is no particular virtue in being seriously unreadable."
In the tradition of John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, Spurgeon's tale is destined to be enjoyed for generations by people of all ages and backgrounds.
