"Charles Haddon Spurgeon was the greatest of Victorian preachers. His attitude towards issues in the spiritual life, never before examined at book length, has now been thoroughly analyzed by Peter Morden. In a carefully structured study of great clarity, the author shows that Spurgeon's concerns, though multifaceted and diverse in origin, can be summed up as 'communion with Christ and his people.'"
--David W. Bebbington, Professor of History, University of Stirling
"Peter Morden is one of the premier historians of the English Baptist tradition. This study proceeds with characteristic precision--and offers some startling conclusions. Communion with Christ and His People is the most important work on Spurgeon to be published in several decades."
--Crawford Gribben, Professor of Early Modern British History, Queen's University, Belfast
"Peter Morden has undertaken a thorough and creative exploration of C. H. Spurgeon's spirituality, arguing convincingly from primary sources that this dimension is crucial to an understanding of the great preacher's life and ministry. Much has been written about Spurgeon, and this book challenges many of the perspectives previously offered. In my view this is the most significant study of Spurgeon ever produced."
