The best is R.C. Sproul.
Pastor Sproul is a Reformed pastor. He has several tape series out and my husband owns many of them.
What makes him unique is that he ALWAYS presents Catholicism correctly. We have listened to him speak (on tape and on the radio) and he will CORRECT Protestants who teach incorrect things about the Catholic Church. It’s wonderful to hear a Protestant give correct information. He doesn’t need to lie, present half-truths, or twist the Catechism around to make his points.
His major disagreement with Catholicism is Merit. We believe that this is the one area in which he has an incomplete understanding of the Catholic Church. We pray that he will eventually come to understand this teaching in the light of Scripture.
And of course, he is an advocate of sola Scriptura as most Protestants are. BUT–he makes it clear that the Scriptures are to be interpreted by the CHURCH, not individuals. That’s absolutely unique among major popular Protestant teachers, most of whom insist that the Holy Spirit can and does reveal interpretation of Scripture to every individual Christian.
I would not call him a media personality like Dr. Dobson or Franklin Graham. He’s kind of hidden. But lots of people besides Reformed Christians listen to him.
Other than that, he agrees with much of Catholic doctrine (the Reformed Church is one of the early churches of the Reformation, and therefore still retains a lot of the CatholicChurch practices, including a liturgy that is almost identical to a Catholic mass.). Obviously Calvinism is not Catholicism and never the two shall meet–or will they? Pastor Sproul is a very loving, well-spoken example of a Protestant pastor who can discuss Catholicism without getting red in the face and using the word “whore.”
He has NOT signed the Evangelicals and Catholics Together Doctrine, BTW.

Listen to him if you get a chance. He has wonderful messages about other Protestant issues; I especially like his approach to the “seeker church” movement that is sweeping Protestantism today.
