The METROPOLITAN TABERNACLE PULPIT is C. H. Spurgeon's original unabridged, unedited 57-Volume sermon series (originally published by Passmore & Alabaster, Spurgeon's publishers, who were also members of his church). Stenographically recorded by his peerless and untiring private secretary, Mr. J. W. Harrald, each sermon was released weekly as a "Penny Pulpit" single publication, a popular method of sermon distribution in the 1800's. It was not only the best-selling "Penny Pulpit" of that time, but the yearly volumes of these sermons out-sold and continue to out-sell any other sermon publications. The MTP Jacket Covers are unique for each volume! — with different Color, Pictures & Testimonials by various Christian leaders & ministers from the late 1800s thru today. Pilgrim Publications has been reprinting the Complete Set of sermons since 1969. After 11 years, the last volume was printed in 1980. These MTP volumes are continually reprinted in a high-quality BLACK Clothbound Binding [with 32 volumes also available in the clothbound Gold Binding]. Unfortunately, Pilgrim no longer reprints volumes in the Collector's Gold Binding as the special gold metallic cloth cover is now too expensive. With both color bindings combined, currently 43 of the 57 volumes are available From 1855, unless otherwise indicated the Sunday morning sermon was published weekly (and bound in the yearly volumes as seen below). After his death in 1892, many previously unpublished Sunday and Thursday evening sermons appear in Volumes 38 thru 63 (years 1892-1917). Some were delivered during the New Park Street years (1855-60), but not previously printed (as there are no duplicates). Each volume of sermons has a distinct and unique COLOR Jacket Cover, with ample testimonials and biographical information. Note: The reprinting of the MTP volumes is ongoing; currently 13 volumes are temporarily out/print (Vols 62/63 are combined), The clothbound volumes combine both black and gold-colored cloth bindings plus unique multi-colored jacket covers [different for each book]. volumes are currently Out of Print #7, 8, 16, 48,49, 50, 53, 54,55,56, 57,, 59 and 61. The price of the MTP set reflects the oop books.
