Favorite Modern Preacher/Teacher

I'm usually not a big fan of mainstream speakers/teachers/pastors etc., but I do have two favorites, Alistair Begg of Truth for Life and Ravi Zacharias.  I recently listened to a podcast from Pastor Begg and the first thing that hit me was how nice it was to be taught something or in other words I focussed on learning something not analyzing some philosophical treatise by someone that I don't agree with (on metaphysical issues) taught by someone that I totally disagree with on metaphysical issues.  It was nice to be able to just relax and learn from this eloquent man of God that I respect.

I don't really remember (now, it's been a few weeks and I haven't listened to him at all since) what the message was about, but it brought to mind how much I've been listening to stuff that I pretty much completely disagree with.  I like thinking about the deep subjects brought up by the various philosophy podcasts to which I regularly listen, but it's sometimes difficult to find the gems of truth that are sometimes buried in their texts.  I'm not so stubborn and close-minded to think that the Bible is the only source of knowledge and truth.  But sometimes it's nice return to the well of truth especially when it's expounded upon by such an orator as Pastor Begg.

Do you have a favorite teacher/speaker/pastor?
