    Dr. Begg certainly leans reformed... that is apparent in preaching. I would hardly call Parksaide a Mega Church ... I have been there on a number of occasions. He hardly runs 2000. It certainly is not a user friendly, seeker sensitive atmosphere. Begg is dispensational and he did pastor a Baptist Church in Scotland before coming to Cleveland in the early 80's. He is solid, but more inclusivisitic than I am comfortable with, hence the FOF and Moody appearances.

    But we can learn from him all the same. His stuff on expository preaching is very good.

    James Boice in my opinion was/is the greatest preacher of our time.

    On my list would also be: Robert Peterson (Covenant Seminary, St. Louis)
    Bryan Chapell & George Robertson (both Covenant Presbyterian
    Church PCA, St. Louis)
    and Philip Graham Ryken (Tenth Presbyterian, Philadephia)

    Someday I would like to hear Spurgeon, JI Packer, RC Sproul Sr., Sinclair Ferguson, Derek Thomas, John Gerstner, M. Lloyd-Jones, and Mike Horton preach. (or reading one of their sermons would be great too if anyone can direct me to them)

    I appreciate Spurgeon's phrase he kept with him in his pulpit: (paraphrase?)-"step aside sir, that they may see Jesus" I wish more pastors would follow this wisdom.

    Of all the gifts Christ has given His church, there are few I appreciate more than truly gifted preachers, especially in our watered-down age.

    You should swim across sea & ocean to hear God using this man to preach if you have to.

    Highlights for me - Series on Genesis, RP Conference (2004) on "Calling", Gospel series.
