Pope Francis is reading from the same Bible as Bonhoeffer, Spurgeon, and Graham.
It is just here that the realistic preaching of the Spurgeon school is available, and nothing else is.

It is admitted that there is scarcely one respect in which Mr. Spurgeon's powers were really transcendent.
But we must remember that even Spurgeon was often guilty of that.
In the evening Mr. Spurgeon preached in the open air, in Chapel Field, to a congregation of more than 10,000.
One of Spurgeon's rooted notions was that unbelievers were sure of hell.
