Lists Unlimited

Rebecca over at Rebecca Writes is looking for lists this month...any type of list. I passed along my list of stores that I'd have in my mall (if I had one). Check out her site (see below) and then go to her comments to find a selection of various and sundry lists.

And, speaking of lists, here's another one. Some of the best known authors, preachers, missionaries and Christian leaders over the centuries have been known by two initials and then their last name.

Here's a list of a few of them:

A. W. Tozer
F. B. Meyer
D. L. Moody
C. H. Mackintosh
J. N. Darby
A. P. Gibbs
J. C. Ryle
W. E. Vine
J. B. Phillips
H. A. Ironside
R. A. Torrey
A. T. Robertson

W. H. Griffith Thomas
A. B. Simpson
W. T. P. Wolston
C. A. Coates
R. C. Chapman
C. T. Studd
A. W. Pink
R. C. Sproul
B. B. Warfield
R. T. Kendall
C. S. Lewis (pictured)
G. K. Chesterton
C. H. Spurgeon (although often refered to by his full name, Charles Haddon Spurgeon)

Go ahead, add some of your own. This is my "initial" list of initialed Heroes of the Faith.
