If you asked a true-blue Christian what is the highest and greatest and the most glorious calling in the world, he would inarguably say preaching the biblical truth. And rightly so! After all, the Bible too says, "If a man seeketh the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work." Now only if you thought that preaching was just about textual exposition, contextual analysis and inspirational writing, know that delivering homiletics is as much an exercise in eloquence as an act of devotion, and it surely takes some serious skill to sow seeds of spirituality, inspire Godliness and change lives from behind that pulpit. America has produced an avalanche of such great men of God including Martin Luther King, Jr and Fred Phelps who have moved the churchgoers in unfathomable ways. From Rick Warren to Chuck Colson and from David Barton to Douglas Coe, America's influential lot of evangelists has led the nation to greatness and goodness in profound spiritual ways. Check out this space to explore the biographies, trivia, and interesting facts about some such famous American preachers.
