A few of my favorite are: Charles SpurgeonGeorge WhitefieldA.W. TozerJonathan Edwards
I see it is permissible to list those from the past and the present. I have a very long list, so I will trim it to the best.Jesus is my favorite preacher from the past. No man, not even an apostle, has come close to his simplicity, his genuine love, his depth of insight. I like to listen to and read his sermons over and over.As for my other favorites, they have all been repeated many times by others earlier in this thread, so just consolidate the other lists. Nearly all of those men have contributed significantly to my relationship with God.

Barring the new testament writers and personalities, among the ones that really affected my thoughts and my walk, the name of Tozer will come easy to my recall. A great theological prowess to win debates I have not learned from this man, but a contrition of the heart, a revival in spirit, a sustaining hope and confidence in God, a glimpse of God's glory, peace in my soul, and sweet communion in prayers and meditations.
