Henry Ward Beecher was the son of the prominent Calvinist minister Lyman Beecher and sister to Harriett Beecher Stowe who wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin. Henry became a celebrated Congregationalist preacher who emphasized God’s love rather than God’s punishment.

He also using his position to advocate abolitionism while encouraging churchgoers to buy freedom for enslaved individuals, journeyed to England 5 times to help convince England to not support the confederacy and proponent of the women's suffrage movement.

He was a key individual of the Third Great Awakening. With Henry Ward Beecher as its minister, Plymouth Church regularly had a packed house for its 3,000 seats and became a tourist attraction for people visiting NYC. Henry Ward Beecher was a full-out celebrity.

His beliefs about God contradicted the strict Calvinism that his father had preached. Beecher instead emphasized God’s forgiveness of human sin and preached a “gospel of love,” which posited a caring, rather than a punishing, deity. As Beecher's religious beliefs evolved, he was so certain of God’s love that he stopped believing in hell. Aspects of this theology would have reverberating effects on U.S. worship decades later.

In the 1870s, he became involved in an adultery scandal widely covered by the press.
