The 50 Most Influential Christians

The Church Report has compiled a list of the
50 Most Influential Christians
in the country. Lists like these are always fun. There are undoubtedly a handful of people on the list that you are excited to see represent Christendom. However, there are also several that it shames you to know that is what some people think of when they hear the word "christian". My question is who stood out to you? Who were you happy to see and who were you not so happy to see? I was excited to See Rick Warren and Bill Hybels crack the top 5. I also liked that Erwin McManus, Ted Haggard, and "W" made the list. Let me know what you think.

I am not going to pretend to know much if anything about most of these people. I did skim through it though and have 2 comments.

Dr. James Kennedy's picture makes him look like a figure in a wax museum.

Dr. Phil doesnt make alot of sense to me. He might be a good christian man but does his show really deal that much with spiritual growth or christianity? The times I have stumbled upon his show I havent seen anything of the sort.

Dr. Phil? Seriously? ....can't say that I'd put him in a top 50 Christian list.

Seems like they could come up with some better Christians to be in the top 50....authors/pastors/business leaders/etc.
