Today only we highlight, Greatest Fight in the World: C.H. Spurgeon’s Final Manifesto, as a free resource available for use within Olive Tree Bible Software’s Bible Study App.
This is the final inaugural address delivered by Charles Haddon Spurgeon at the College Conference in April 1891. This book is an encouragement to every modern warrior engaged in the crusade against error and sin. It was published after Spurgeon’s death as The Greatest Fight in the World. Later the subtitle Final Manifesto was added.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) converted to Christianity at the age of fifteen. By the age of twenty-two, he was the most popular preacher in England, and remained so for the latter half of the 1800s. He frequently spoke to crowds over 10,000 in the days before electronic amplification. Known as the “Prince of Preachers,” he delivered nearly thirty-six hundred sermons throughout his life. A prolific writer as well, many of Spurgeon’s works remain in print to this day.

As part of the Study Tools category, Olive Tree offers access to some great sermon collections for use within The Bible Study App. Many of these sermon collections are also enhanced for use within the resource guide.
Sermons work much the same as a commentary in the resource guide. In the screenshot below the resource guide recognizes that I’m in Galatians chapter four and so when I look at the sermon section of the resource guide I see that in my installed sermon collections both Charles Spurgeon and John Piper have preached on this particular section of scripture.
A simple tap/click then takes me to the text of their sermon for easy reading and also to help me in my understanding of the passage.

All of Grace is one of his most widely known and best-selling written works. It is a chaptered work, longer and more in-depth than any of his sermons. Subtitled “An Earnest Word with Those Who Are Seeking Salvation by the Lord Jesus Christ,” All of Grace is Spurgeon’s fullest explanation of the process of God’s redemption of Christian souls. It is also an inspiring gift of encouragement to believers in their Christian walk—a “fountain by the wayside” where Spurgeon hoped many will find refreshment. Its plain and simple language rings with his concern for the souls of all humanity.

In Come Ye Children, C.H. Spurgeon offers his advice on sharing the gospel with children and training them early in the things of God. It is filled with scriptural examples that demonstrate the importance of caring for those who are young in faith, and helping them develop their understanding of the gospel.
Born this day in 1834 in Essex, England, Charles Haddon Spurgeon was known as the “Prince of Preachers” and may have preached as many as 10 sermons a week! A prolific writer as well, many of Spurgeon’s works remain in print to this day. In honor of his birthday today, here are some inspiring quotes from this highly influential Christian preacher and writer:
“It is a difficult thing to describe the hour of conversion. It would be easier for my lips to crowd entire poems into one word. It would be easier for my voice to distill hours of melody into a single syllable. It would be easier for my tongue to utter in one letter the essence of the harmony of ages. For the hour of conversion is an hour that surpasses other days of my life as much as gold surpasses dross.” – From My Conversion
“Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.”
“We would fain fall down on our faces and worship the Son of God today. It is such a wonder that He should have loved us; and He has done such wonderful things for us and in us that we may still call Him God’s unspeakable gift. He is unspeakably precious to our souls. Thou knowest all things, Lord; Thou knowest that we love Thee. May that love bubble up today like a boiling cauldron, may our hearts overflow; and if we cannot speak what we feel, may that holy silence be eloquent with the praise of God.” – From Prayers
“If Christ is not all to you He is nothing to you. He will never go into partnership as a part Saviour of men. If He be something He must be everything, and if He be not everything He is nothing to you.”
“There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labor in his service.”
“Many a gentleman will live beyond his income, spending more than he has coming in; but there is not a Christian that does that–I mean that lives up to his spiritual income. Oh, no! you have an infinite income–an income of promises–an income of grace; and no Christian ever lived up to his income. Some people say, ‘If I had more money, I should have a larger house, and horses, and a carriage, and so on.’ Very well and good; but I wish Christians would do the same. I wish they would set up a larger house, and do greater things for God; look more happy, and take those tears away from their eyes.” – From Words of Cheer for Daily Life
