The Sword and Trowel
The Sword & Trowel magazine was started in 1865 by C. H. Spurgeon.
It currently enjoys an extensive readership throughout the world, especially among ministers and church leaders. Each issue of the Sword & Trowel includes a new book. The large number of subscribers enables both magazine and books to be produced at an extremely low price.
The latest edition is accompanied by Deepening Discernment: The Meaning and Purpose of 1 John by Dr Peter Masters. Books and magazine articles have been translated and published in many other countries.
Subscribers pay about a quarter of the price subsequently charged for the magazine and book in bookshops.
As C. H. Spurgeon intended in 1865: “We would ply the Trowel with untiring hand for the building up of Jerusalem’s dilapidated walls, and wield the Sword with vigour and valour against the enemies of the Truth.”
