I have long been a fan of documentaries. A good documentary can educate, entertain, and move the audience. It tells a story we might not have ever heard (or perhaps only heard one side of) and brings us into it in such a way that we can feel what's at stake. The new documentary by Stephen McCaskell, Through The Eyes of Spurgeon, is one of those docs. It will both enlighten and stir you.
Charles Spurgeon was a 19th century Reformed Baptist pastor whose gospel rich ministry had, and continues to have, an immeasurable impact on the world and the church. While it seems to me that most Christians appreciate Spurgeon, most don't seem to know much about the man's life beyond the fact that he was a preacher in London. Through the Eyes of Spurgeon walks us through the Spurgeon's childhood, conversion, ministry, marriage, controversies, and death with beautiful cinematography, helpful commentary, and powerful words of the man himself.
