This year, for my biographical sermon in December, I am revisiting my hero and friend, Charles Haddon Spurgeon. I would recommend the Dallimore biography above many others for one reason: readability. You will be able to fly through this book and get a grasp on Spurgeon as a man and a minister. This year is also the Year of Worship at Heartland Baptist Church and I am focussing on Preaching as Worship Leading from the Desk of Charles Spurgeon. This biography will demonstrate the commitment of this servant of Christ to preach with Puritanical light and heat that would ignite the city of London in a way they had never seen. I pray this book is a useful resource for you if you choose to pick it up.
