10 Texas Baptists of century
___In the last weeks of this year, the Baptist Standard will publish a series of historical reflections on Baptist progress in Texas in the 20th century. As part of this series, readers are invited to help name the 10 most influential Texas Baptists of the 20th century.
___The purpose of this poll is not to choose the most popular or likable characters, but the most influential.
___To vote, select no more than 10 names from the list below. To be counted, ballots must be received by Sept. 8.
___The list below was compiled by the Baptist Standard's editorial staff in consultation with Leon McBeth, professor of church history at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Alan Lefever, director of the Texas Baptist Historical Collection.
___This list considers only those Texans who made a strong impact inside Texas Baptist life and does not consider those Texans who made their mark outside Texas Baptist life.
