I'm going to limit it just to writers on Christian subjects, because I don't usually bother to even learn the religion of writers on other subjects. Not complete, just off the top of my head. And I will count Anglicans as Protestants, though I don't really think they are.
C.S. Lewis (largely responsible for my being a Christian)
N.T. Wright (major influence on my faith)
Gordon D. Fee (through his books, my mentor in exegesis)
Brian D. McLaren (also a major influence)
Donald M. Miller
Martin Luther (another major influence; I agree with Lutherans on a lot, and I learned it mainly from Luther)
John Calvin (I'm not a Calvinist, but I enjoy reading him. Calvin himself makes much more sense to me than his followers usually do.)
Ravi Zacharias (apologist)
Josh McDowell (ditto)
Allister McGrath is a good writer. I loved his book "Christianity's Dangerous Idea". He writes exactly that- how dangerous a concept Protestantism really was and is.
Also, as a former Anglican I certainly consider Anglicans to be Protestant. They consider themselves reformed, Articles of Religion very much concepts of Calvin and Luther, the formation of Church of England was inspired by Lutheran establishment. John Henry Newman tried to argue for Anglicanism as a fourth branch of Christianity, but obviously he later realized Anglicanism to be false and became a Catholic priest.
