Spurgeon Library Purchased

Midwestern Seminary, where I am currently enrolled, has purchased the personal library of Charles Spurgeon from nearby William Jewell College for $400,000. You can read the press release here.

As I love Charles Spurgeon, and as I hope that we can be much like him in regards to his passion for God, love for evangelism, faithfulness to church growth and commitment to authentic discipleship – I am ecstatic about this development. This is a good move in the life of Southern Baptist academia, in my opinion.

  1. I’m curious, is it just the collection of books that was purchased or is it what is shown in the picture? I didn’t know if it was something that would be taken apart and recreated on the Midwestern campus, like a heritage village sort of thing.

  2. There was no ill intent in my comment… just good fun based on Dr. Caner’s quote and information I had heard regarding Southwestern’s interest in the library (another source stated that they were the next high bidder… it’s uncertain whether this is true or not).

    Anyway… if anyone takes offense, they have my apologies.
