    Okay, admit it: you like some preachers who aren't Baptist. So who are they? Why do you like them?

    I like to listen to Chuck Swindoll for his practical application of Scripture. That is often missing is some Baptist preaching! :eek:

    I really like listening to Martyn Lloyd-Jones. He is very knowledgable and He approaches the Word with a seriousness and earnestness that is too often missing today.
    I like A.W. Tozer also, dont agree with everything he says but most is good.

    Frederick Buechner - His use of language is incredible.

    John Claypool - He used to be baptist. There is a wit and an eloquence to his work that is unique.

    Fred Craddock - Vivid!

    Those are my top 3 non-baptists. I'd include Barbara Taylor, but we've discussed her on several other threads.

    I like Swindoll also. Very application oriented without sacrificing too much exposition. Dr. Bob is exactly right. Modern sermons are not as application oriented as they should be. A simple reading of Puritan sermons shows the value they placed on application. We could learn from them.

    I like reading and listening to William Willimon, dean of the chapel at Duke. Very insightful and not afraid to challenge his own mainline tradition.

    Joshua,
    One thing I also like about the three gentlemen you mentioned is that they are good authors as well.

    I like to listen to Steve Brown of Keylife radio. I love his humor, his style, and the fact that he is ALWAYS centered on Jesus and Grace.

    I also like Swindoll. He has such a "folksy" teacher attitude. :cool:

    Have you ever heard Leonard Sweet speak? I heard him twice, and instead of stepping on my toes, he kicked my shins.

    Alistaire Begg, WCRF.
    Um, yeah, that kinda goes against everything you know about me.
    Sigh.

    The only non-Baptist I have consistently listened to for a number of years is J. Vernon McGee. I especially like his homey country-sounding drawl (I believe he was raised in Texas). Of course, he also has a lot to say. Though he is deceased, he can still be heard on the radio - "he being dead yet speaketh."

    He's my favorite preacher alive today. I consider him Baptist since he is one theologically, as far as I understand.

    I listen to John MacArthur every chance I get. I never fail to be blessed, taught, and/or convicted.

    Some says he is a practical Baptist as well,though.

    We don't have Alistair Begg on our local station, and I've never heard him preach an entire message, but I LOVE his Scottish accent! My son has heard him in special services at Cedarville University twice, and thinks very highly of him.

    Thomas,

    You're the first person I've seen here who likes Steve Brown.

    I love Key Life and get all sorts of things from them every month.

    You're absolutely right, his focus on grace is desperately needed in the church and I like the fact that he's not religious.

    One of the coolest things that they do at Key Life is that they very rarely ask for money and they'll send you the tapes and magazine even if you tell them you can't afford them.

    Good choice, Molian, but have you ever heard him preach? I have only been blessed thru his writings and never even heard his voice.

    While a great "story-teller" who gets 2-thumbs-up from me, I do not know what kind of "preacher" he is. :confused:

    Anyone who's heard him??
