    Trying not to appear unspiritual for not crediting the Holy Spirit... but I have been influenced by Chuck Swindoll's books and Lloyd Jones sermons on Romans.

    James M. Boice from 10th pres in Philadelphia has also been influential.

    The Holy Spirit is the Author of the scriptures. He has had the "most" influence on me. I really can't say any human theologian has had much influence on me because I don't read theological books. There are certain men of God that have had an influence such as my pastor, Adrian Rogers, Charles Stanley, but the Bible is my main source.

    Guess should have more specific on this OP, as the asumption was that the Bible and God were already as MOST important, so who after them?

    David Jeremiah
    Randy Alcorn (not for theology, to to re-mold my thinking on Heaven away from a strumming-a-harp-on-a-cloud mentality to one of reality.)

    Carlyle Marney wrote a number of books. Those I remember as the moment are:

    Faith In Conflict
    The Coming Faith
    Priests To Each Other
    The Carpenter's Son
    Dangerous Fathers, Problem Mothers and Terrible Teens
    Beggars in Velvet
    Crucible of Redemption
    He Became Like Us
    Structures of Prejudice

    I doubt any of his book are still in print but I am sure you can buy used ones online.

    The best modern day Preacher in my opinion was Adrian Rogers. Charles stanley's "Wonderful Spirit Filled Life" book really had a huge impact on me.
