Discussion in 'Baptist Theology & Bible Study' started by JesusFan, Jun 27, 2011.
which person helped you grow in their writings the most?
The Holy Spirit.
Is the holy spirit a Christian or theologian? ;-)
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?
1. Dietrich Bonhoeffer
2. Carlyle Marney
3. Elton Trueblood
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.)
Do Know # 1 and #3, what did #2 write?
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.
Christian Theology = A.W. Pink
Christian Devotional = Chuck Swindoll
Christian Preacher = Charles H Spurgeon
Christian Philosopher = Francis Schaeffer
Did last author write 'God is there, and He is not silent?"
