While I liked the attitude of a preacher very concerned with being a transparent vehicle for God's Word who said "the greatest complement is to be told that previous sermon really helped me but I don't recall who preached it."

Then Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger once commented how odd it was that those who talk the most about the Priesthood of all Believers write in the largest letters the name of the preacher on their church signs...

Dr. David Martyn Lloyd-Jones   (rigorously biblical - never to be found chasing the ball in the pop-psych or issue-of-the-day or secular-motivational weeds)

Dr. S. Lewis Johnson (also rigorously biblical - never to be found chasing the ball in the pop-psych or issue-of-the-day or secular-motivational weeds; was a huge help to me personally when I became reformed in the middle of a dispy seminary Masters program)

BTW and FWIW:  Good preachers are not necessarily good communicators (humanly speaking) nor are good communicators necessarily good preachers.

David Jeremiah (We have some of his books in Logos!) https://www.davidjeremiah.org 

I like the way he preaches. He is easy to listen to.

and 

Adrian Rogers (Logos also has some of his books and sermonshttps://www.lwf.org 

The thing I really like about Adrian Rogers is that in every single sermon I have watched or listened to he always, without fail gave an invitation for the       hearers to accept Christ into their life. And he is easy to listen to. I like his stories and illustrations too.

Michael Kinch:

SineNomine:

Are you restricting this to the living? Would deceased preachers of whom there are recordings potentially count?

No I am not restricting them to living preachers. Many of the greatest preachers in my mind are from a prior era. As long as I can hear or watch them, that is my only criteria.

In that case, I suggest the Emmy winner Fulton J. Sheen.

Can you point me to where he said/wrote this? Then I could cite it....

I wish I could. I did find him criticizing preachers names on church signs on pages 163-164 of Called to Communion, but I swear I read him pointing out the irony somewhere. My guess, based on what of his I have read that is NOT in my Logos library would be God is Near Us, but that is only a guess. My copy of it is packed away somewhere.

I could make a whole list of recommendations, but I'll put one, easily the greatest preacher of the 20th century, Martyn-Lloyd Jones. Download the MLJ Trust app!

D.A. Carson, Bryan Chapell, Norman Geisler AND Adrian Rogers! The latter 2 are both deceased, but left behind a great legacy! 👍😁👌

On a similar note, instead of hearing what a great preacher a person is after preaching, I like it when people say "what a great God we have"!

who said "the greatest complement is to be told that previous sermon really helped me but I don't recall who preached it."

As a worship leader who is often covering for holidays I often tell the congregation something like 'Rev'd John was quite worried about leaving me in your hands. Please reassure him; in fact next week when you shake his hand at the door look straight at him and say 'We had a really good sermon last week, you should have been here''.

Depends on what you're looking for:

For a podcast - I have benefited from Dr James White and the Dividing Line. 9 Marks has a good podcast geared toward the Pastor/Elder. Dr White also has one of the better Church History series I have listened to and a ton of teaching and preaching content on Monergism and the Alpha and Omega website.

For Teaching/Preaching - I just started the 230 plus sermon series M Lloyd Jones has on his trust website. To attempt to add names not listed by others thus far:

Voddie Baucham, Sam Storms, Kim Riddlebarger, Wayne Grudem, John Piper all have some excellent series ranging from Eschatology to Systematic Theology and the Book of Romans - most available for free on their sites.

I'm not an Apple guy, but some years ago a friend turned me on to Itunes U and I downloaded a lot of content from some of the seminaries - not sure if it is still in operation or not.
