No, this isn't a vanity thing,( though the header might imply that.) I will list some names that are notable in the evangelical world. These are people that I have interacted with face-to-face. I'm not merely citing those I heard preach/lecture like Carl Henry,Sinclair Ferguson and Stuart Briscoe. In the first category I will name those I had only a singular conversation with. I will not go in alphabetical order or arrangement of some perceived level of importance. Alistar Begg Michael Horton R.C. Sproul D.A. Carson James White John Greer Michael Barrett Carl Amerding Stuart Olyott Hywel R. Jones Willem Van Gameren Ruth Tucker William MacDonald In this second category I will list those people who I have had multiple conversations with. In some cases those multiple conversations took place on a given weekend. In other situations I have spoken with them periodically over the course of years. As time goes by I note that in a number of instances the last time I saw them occurred decades ago. Iain Murray John MacArthur Phil Johnson Dave Hunt Philip Ryken John Gerstner James M. Boice Pete Enns Bryan Maclaren I am sure I will be editing this OP because other names will pop in my head. How about some of you contributing to this topic? I realize that some of the most important Christians in your life are not famous. They have had a greater impact than a dozen of well-known believers.
