Christianity Today Ten Influential Christians of the 20th Century

Billy Graham, William Seymour, Mother Teresa, Karl Barth, C. S. Lewis, John XXIII, Alexandr Solzhenitsyn, John Paul II, John R. Mott and Martin Luther King, Jr. This list contains pastors, evangelists, social workers, Popes, revolutionaries, scholars, writers, theologians, professors and leaders. These ten individuals have offered much to the global Church, and we of the 21st century are grateful.

Christian History & Biography offers this issue in recognition of such devoted Christian leaders whose ministries have impacted millions in the West and around the world.

Inside this issue you'll find:

  • Billy Graham - As an evangelist he has preached to millions; as an evangelical he put a movement on the map.
  • C. S. Lewis - The atheist scholar who became an Anglican , an apologist, and a "patron saint" of Christians everywhere.
  • William Seymour - What scoffers viewed as a "weird babble of tongues" became a world phenomenon after his Los Angeles revival.
  • Mother Teresa - She stirred a generation by touching the untouchables.
  • Karl Barth - He revived orthodoxy when mere moralism and humanism had seemingly won over the theological world.
  • John XXIII - Elected to be a caretaker pope, he decided instead to revolutionize Catholicism.
  • Alexandr Solzhenitsyn - The high school physics-teacher-turned-novelist whose writings shook an empire.
  • John Paul II - In issuing more significant encyclicals and visiting more nations than any other pope in history, he's shown that Christianity remains a world force.
  • John Mott - Evangelist and ecumenist.
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. - No Christian played a more prominent role in the century's most significant social justice movement.
  • Rumblings to the South - In Africa and elsewhere, third-world Christians are shaking society.
  • What Do You Think? - How our scholars and general readers voted in the "Most Influential Christians of the Century" survey.

I love all the Christian History Magazines. They are full of information which might require more reading time to obtain than one has. This one is good because it is more current history.
