possibly fill the shoes of Charles Spurgeon in the way this Op suggests? Charles H.Spurgeon is adored by many outside the ranks of Calvinism.Those same folks do not have even a smattering of that kind of respect for John Calvin,John Owen,B.B.Warfield and many other prominent Calvinists down through the ages. Of course many Baptists would naturally incline themselves to a fellow Baptist.However,the sainted John Bunyan doesn't come close. A.W. Pink is seen as too austere though he was baptistic. Other Baptists are not even on the radar screen.Men like B.H.Carroll and John Broadus are non-starters. I guess my question to the non-Cals out there in BB-Land is who would place second in your favor after C.H.S? What Calvinist would be likekable enough to be embraced by non-Cals as a runner-up to the Prince of Preachers in this respect?
