In yesterday’s post I mentioned that over the past 7 years, ever since I entered into seminary, I have found that there have been a handful of people who have significantly impacted the way I view and approach my role as a pastor. I also mentioned in that post that I have a list of people who are still alive and those who are not. My lists are as following.
1. Tim Keller – preaching and the gospel
2. NT Wright – theology, story and the person of Jesus
3. Dallas Willard – spiritual formation and discipleship
4. Ravi Zacharias – preaching and apologetics
5. Mike Breen and the 3DM Team – discipleship and mission
1. C.S. Lewis – you name it…
2. Jonathan Edwards – preaching
3. John Owen – temptation & sin – be killing sin or it will be killing you
4. Dietrich Bonhoeffer – discipleship & community
Who is on your lists?
