I have a book in my office on Charles Spurgeon. It is basically different quotes and things from newspaper clippings and a very rare book. And if you look there you see that Spurgeon was constantly attacked in his culture for the openness of his faith and the openness of his preaching. If you go back to the time of Whitefield and just look at the political cartoons written against Whitefield, I mean, he was considered an absolute fanatic, a crazy man. Why? Because he preached in the open air. John and Charles Wesley in England, Hal Harris and Daniel Rowland. It has never been with the culture to do open air evangelism.
