Charles Haddon Spurgeon(1834 - 1892) was an Baptist preacher in England in the mid to late 1800s. Known as the Prince of Preachers, Spurgeon was to England what D.L. Moody was in America.

Despite not having classic theological training, Spurgeon was one of the most popular speakers in London by the Age of 21. He preached to crowds in both Essex Hall and the Surrey Music Hall. Eventually, the Metropolitan Tabernacle was built in London, seating 6000 people. They gathered every week to hear Spurgeon speak. Many more heard Spurgeon's sermons by the duplication and distribution of his sermons world wide.

He also founded other churches, orphanages, and a Pastor's College.
