Sermons in Candles by C H Spurgeo.
In this work C H Spurgeon looks away from his era of “gas and electricity” and recalls earlier days when candles were the only source of light in homes, buildings and even street lights.
Firstly he briefly recounts how candles were manufactured - both commercially and domestically - and the secondly launches into rich spiritual applications of the use of candles in society. Using this imagery as a springboard, Spurgeon taps God’s word with his superb powers of exposition. Spurgeon’s great lessons for life revolve around candles in lanterns, candles under bushels, candles that splutter, candle that burn at both ends, and candles that light other candles.
