Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), often known today as the Prince of Preachers, began his pastorate at London's New Park Street Church in 1854 at the age of twenty. Following in the Non-conformist tradition, he quickly became one of Britain's most popular preachers. Both his audiences and his written works were voluminous: he often preached (out of doors without amplification) to crowds bettering 10,000, and the sheer number of his written sermons is staggering. A strong emphasis in Spurgeon's preaching was God's grace and sovereignty over man's helpless state. He also knew well the terrible joy that comes only through suffering as he lived quite afflicted (both by illness and slander). C.H. Spurgeon left this earth for his heavenly hope in 1892.
