Charles Simeon (1759-1836) was one of the foremost evangelical leaders of the Anglican church. While based in Holy Trinity, Cambridge all his life, his influence stretched across the world. Henry Martyn, whom he loved as a son, was his curate. Henry Martyn's influence through his Bible translation into Urdu, Persian, Judeao-Persian and Arabic was wide-reaching. John Stott said Charles Simeon was his mentor, through his writing, and that it was Simeon who taught him how to preach. He asked for words from Simeon's memorial plaque in Holy Trinity Church to be written on his own headstone (in Dale churchyard in Pembrokeshire, near his writing retreat, The Hookses). This short book looks at Simeon's life, and tracks his legacy down to the present day. The Cambridge Inter-Collegiate Christian Union (CICCU) which formed the root of mission endeavour in many parts of the world, traces its beginnings to Simeon. He purchased advowsons (the right to appoint clergy) in many parishes, and Simeon's Trustees (now merged with Hyndman's Trust) continue to make these appointments. The silhouette artist Edouart Augustin cut Simeon's silhouettes as he preached. This book features each of the silhouettes.
