Description: “(1832-1902) US preacher, clergyman and divine who held pastorates in the Reformed Church of America and Presbyterian Church. One of the most prominent American religious leaders in the mid-to-late 19th century, equaled as a pulpit orator perhaps only by Henry Ward Beecher. He also preached to crowds in England. During the 1860s & 70s, he was a well-known reformer in New York City, often involved in crusades against vice and crime. During the last years of his life, Dr. Talmage ceased preaching and devoted himself to editing, writing, and lecturing. He was editor of the “Christian at Work” (1873–76) in New York; “The Advance” (1877–79) in Chicago; “Frank Leslie’s Sunday Magazine” (1879–89) in New York; and “The Christian Herald” (1890–1902) in New York. For years his sermons were published regularly in 3,000+ journals through which he was said to reach 25,000,000 readers.
