Although the "Prince of Preachers" Charles Haddon Spurgeon lived before the advent of modern psychology and counseling, he had deep insights into mental and spiritual elements of humankind. He experienced many of the trials of life that others encounter, both mentally and physically.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) converted to Christianity at the age of fifteen. By the age of twenty-two, he was the most popular preacher in England, and remained so for the latter half of the 1800s. He frequently spoke to crowds over 10,000 in the days before electronic amplification. Known as the "Prince of Preachers," he delivered nearly thirty-six hundred sermons throughout his life. A prolific writer as well, many of Spurgeon's works remain in print to this day.
