Let’s drive to church history about a man called Charles Haddon Spurgeon. He was an English Baptist preacher who was highly influential among Christians of various denominations. His salvation experience began when he was 15years old and by 16years old he was baptized. He sold himself to God until he was nicknamed “Prince of Preachers”.
Today, the works of Charles Spurgeon still speak even after many centuries gone. His charity organization which is now globally, Spurgeon’s college named after him, commentaries, books of prayer, devotional magazines, hymns and many sermons that have been transcribed as he spoke and were translated into many languages during his life-time.
