Charles Spurgeon’s Lecture on Open Air Preaching

Open air preaching is not very popular today and is often maligned by people including those who claim to follow Christ.  It is viewed today as a poor form of evangelism, a type of evangelism that has lost touch with true evangelism, etc.  But few realize that great men of God such as John Wesley, George Whitefield and even Charles Spurgeon himself advocated open air preaching.  While you might argue that their time was a very different time, God’s Word promises us that salvation comes through the hearing of the gospel (Romans 10:14-17).  Open air preaching is useful to present the gospel and it almost always opens the door for conversations about the gospel.
