A Voice from the Hartley Coal Mine (one of the most horrific mining disasters ever) - "If a man die, shall he live again?" [Job 14:14]. This sermon was preached to commemorate the Hartley Mining Disaster of 16 January 1862—exactly two weeks prior to the preaching of this message. In one of the most horrific mining disasters ever, 204 men and boys lost their lives when part of a giant cast iron beam (more than 20 tons of it) broke off the massive pumping engine and launched itself down the shaft, blocking the only exit and trapping more than 200 men in the vast underground coal pit. Although the remaining men of the town and hundreds from nearby communities labored for days to try to open up a means of rescue, most of the men trapped in the pit probably succumbed to noxious gasses within 36 hours. At the time Spurgeon preached this message, bodies of the victims were still being recovered, and England was just coming to grips with the magnitude of the disaster.

Down-Grade Controversy The Down-Grade Controversy - Charles Spurgeon was a Baptist preacher and a member of the Baptist Union (a denomination of Baptist Churches).  Over the years, Spurgeon noted a downward tendency away from the Truth of the Scripture by the Baptist Union.  He then started to address the "shift" away from the truth, trying to save the denomination for going "liberal" in their theology and practice.  Ultimately, he withdrew from the Union.  The following are the various articles of discussions between Spurgeon and the Baptist Union as recorded in the Christian Newpaper, The Sword and the Trowel -- this controversy has much to say about our Evangelical churches today in America:
  1. The Down Grade (March 1887)
  2. The Down Grade (April, 1887)
  3. Another Word Concerning the Down-Grade (August, 1887)
  4. Our Reply to Sundry Critics and Enquirers (September, 1887)
  5. The Case Proved (October, 1887)
  6. A Fragment Upon the Down-Grade Controversy (November, 1887)
  7. Restoration of Truth and Revival (December, 1887)
  8. The Baptist Union Censure (February, 1888)
  9. Progressive Theology (April, 1888)
  10. Current Religious Perils (September, 1888)
  11. Attempts at the Impossible (December, 1888)
  12. This Must Be a Soldiers' Battle (December, 1889)
  13. "Mr. Spurgeon's Confession of Faith" (August, 1891 )
  14. A Sermon for the Time Present (Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, No. 1990, October 30, 1887)
  15. The "Down Grade" Controversy from Mr. Spurgeon's Standpoint (From The Autobiography, Vol. IV)
