An often overlooked ministry in the church today is that of the open-air preacher. What has open-air preaching looked like over the centuries of church history? And what are some basic principles that we should use in practicing this work today? Spurgeon answers both questions in this fascinating study of open-air preaching.
Open-Air Preaching is adapted from two chapters of Lectures to My Students entitled “Open-Air Preaching and Its History” and “Open-Air Preaching—Remarks Thereon.” Charles H. Spurgeon delivered his Lectures to My Students to men preparing for the ministry at his Pastor’s College. He founded the college to provide a place where men called to preach could study at low cost and with a clear focus on preparation for ministry rather than scholastic achievement.
