no quibble with your choices (well, maybe the ranking!), but no Luther?

George Grant said...

Luther would be in my Top 25 but not in my Eleventary. Though he obviously launched the Reformation, he was only an "historical figure" to me until very late in my Christian walk. I never actually read any of his books until about 15 years ago.

Kuyper?

Dorothy: Yes, Kuyper has been a tremendous influence--to the point that I am almost tempted to call myself a Kuyperian (if it didn't sound just a bit pretentious)!
