Fan Photo from John Philson

A few years ago, I was invited to attend a surprise birthday party for John MacArthur. (His birthday is the same as C.H. Spurgeon, y'know) It was a thrill to be among the thousands and hear an expository message on the entire book of Romans. John Philson took this snapshot of the east side of the crowd. If you want better detail, then click on the photo. Thanks for the wide lens shot of half the room! I'll be sending you either a check for $7,000 or a copy of Against Calvinism by the Three Amigos.


  1. If it wasn't for my eagle-eyed daughter, I would have missed Corky and Nigel!

  2. @Persis
    You mean to tell me that you didn't spot Millard Fillmore either?

  3. (His birthday is the same as C.H. Spurgeon, y'know)

    The party's organizers discovered later, to their embarrassment, that they had been misinformed. Dr. MacArthur's birthday was actually four and a half month after Spurgeon's.

    This miscue, however, had the effect of dramatically enhancing the element of surprise for John.
