Charles Spurgeon

A brief bio of Charles Spurgeon, a continuing Reformer in the Protestant Reformation:

James Boyce was not the only influential Particular Baptist in the mid-late 1800s, Charles Spurgeon was as well. Spurgeon was one of the most influential Baptists in church history. He was referred to by many as “the last of the puritans” and the “prince of preachers.”[1] Spurgeon affirmed the “Second London Confession,” as was evident in his preaching and writing.[2]
