    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, at this link there are dozens of pictures from church history - people who have affected the church for good and bad. No reading here, just pictures for those who need a break and want to put a face with a name.

    I have a copy of Theodore Beza's "Icones," Contemporary Portraits of Reformers of Religion and Letters (facsimile of 1909 edition by C.G. McCrie), which contains portraits of a number of additional Reformers. I think it is in the public domain (this should be verified). If so, it could provide additional pictures. I commend Beza's work highly! :detective:

    Is it in digital form or is it a book?

    Book. I have yet to see it in digital form, but it would be a blessing to the body of Christ if this work could be brought into the 21st century.

    Beza, Theodore. Beza┬┤s Icones; Contemporary Portraits of Reformers of Religion and Letters. 1909. 300 pp. Notable for its woodcut portraits of all the main Protestant Reformers, with biographies. 1546. $30.

    Another book which I commend along these lines is the Illustrated History of the Reformation by Oskar Thulin (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1967). It has more pictures of Reformers and historical sites and objects than any other single source I have read.

    The Reformation picture gallery is another educational resource: http://www.mun.ca/rels/hrollmann/reform/pics/pics.html

    Here's an interesting website. It's a gallery of famous people throughout the history of Western civilization, including some Christians. The pictures may be downloaded for personal use.

    If you must use an Olsteen as your avatar, at least use his wife Victoria!:p

    Every "sermon" I have ever heard by Olsteen has been "health and wealth" garbage. Isn't Lakewood almost the largest (if not already) church in America?

    It will be if it isn't now! They bought a former NBA basketball stadium.

    And you're right, Olsteen never mentions sin, and he's proud of that!

    A signer of the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith - his was the first name signed to the 1689 Confession. A notable Particular Baptist who was born in England, came to the colonies to preach, and then returned to found a church in the UK.

    I am shocked and amazed that you missed him.....but not really since most hands raised are probably from non-Baptists, or former Baptists who were not reformed when they were Baptists!

    Point taken. I am more well-grounded in Presbyterian history than Baptist, I don't mind saying. :D

    The article I found on him noted that Cotton Mather considered him to be an antinomian. However, it didn't say anything about the Baptist Confession so I missed that until you mentioned it. Ah, well! That's good to know, thanks!
