Storm Signals; Being a Collection of Sermons Preached on Sunday and Thursday Evenings at the Metropolitan Tabernacle

Author: C. H. Spurgeon
Publisher: Passmore and Alabaster
Publish Date: 1886

Our publishers have asked a near and highly esteemed friend to select and edit these sermons and he has thrown his whole heart into the work. "Storm Signals" are wanted in these perilous times. We have enough of pretty speeches meant to flatter the boastful wisdom of this age of folly. Cooing doves are on all boughs and the turtle notes of "the larger hope" are heard in every green bower; but the tempest, with its crash of thunder and stroke of hail, will not be warded off by such lying voices. Not to please, but to arouse, these storm signals are sent forth. With more than all the love of which the smooth speaking soothsayers make such empty vaunt, we seek to save men from going down into the pit and not to delude them with the hope of getting out of it unharmed.
