Murderer Redeemed by Penny Sermon

"One of the most fascinating events surrounding the reading of a Spurgeon sermon occurred in a South American city. There, an Englishman had been confined to prison for life, apparently for murder. An English friend visited him and left behind two English novels. But as the providence of God would have it, between the leaves of one of the novels, a Spurgeon sermon had been wedged. The message influenced the prisoner tremendously, for in the sermon Spurgeon referred to the murder of Palmer. The Gospel presented in the message gave the prisoner such hope in Christ that, though he never expected to be released from prison, he had come to know Jesus Christ as Saviour and would one day experience the great liberation of heaven."
