Associate Professor of Historical Theology and Curator of the Spurgeon Library
The history of the slave movement has been well documented - even turned into major motion pictures - and many of the heroes of the abolition of slavery have become household names… You may have heard of Thomas Fowell Buxton, Thomas Clarkson and of course William Wilberforce… but have you heard about Charles Spurgeon?
One of the most famous Christian figures in history, Charles Spurgeon was an early advocate for human rights and an outspoken abolitionist. Known as the “Prince of Preachers” Spurgeon used his vast influence to speak out against slavery and injustice... In 2017, why shouldn't we follow his example and do the same?
