The Dissenters Volume III

Michael R. Watts

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the most popular Nonconformist preacher of the reign of Queen Victoria and the strongest opponent of attempts to modify, explain away, or repudiate traditional Evangelical teaching on eternal punishment. For over thirty years, Spurgeon kept an eagle eye out for any of his fellow Dissenters who showed signs of straying from his own narrow brand of conservative Evangelicalism. By the end of 1870, he became increasingly worried by the growth of theological liberalism in the churches, and increasingly bellicose in his call to arms to stop the spread of its insidious influence.

Keywords:   religious dissent, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Nonconformist, eternal punishment, Christianity, theological liberalism
