Throughout his impressive preaching career, Charles Haddon Spurgeon frequently illustrated the Gospel by references to nature. Using illustrations such as those recorded in Teachings of Nature in the Kingdom of Grace, he made the allusions of Scripture more readily understood by the crowds who listened to him.
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.
