One of the great 'Keswick' preachers of England was John Stuart Holden. He was a contemporary of F.B. Meyer and G. Campbell Morgan, but was more popular in many circles of his day. He studied under H.G.C. Moule at Cambridge and became an Anglican preacher. He succeeded William H. Griffith-Thomas at St. and ministered there for 30 years. He was a very popular preacher in North America and made many trips to the U.S. and Canada. He and his wife were booked on the maiden voyage of the Titanic, but were providentially hindered from making the trip. Holden was active in missionary causes like the China Inland Mission. His preaching was vibrant and imaginative. His sermon titles were especially well thought out. In 1914, he preached a message on Daniel 3:18 entitled "But If Not..." which was described as profound and prophectic concerning England's place in the upcoming World War I.
