Time magazine has named “The 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America,” leaving out Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson but naming author Tim LaHaye of the Left Behind series, GOP Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Michael Gerson, a White House speech writer. Catholic priest Richard Neuhaus, a convert from Lutheranism and founder of the New York–based religious journal First Things, was included. A less familiar name is Douglas Coe, 76, head of the Washington-based Fellowship Foundation, which convenes the National Prayer Breakfast following the State of the Union address. The Grahams, Billy and Franklin, were there as well as historian Mark Noll of Wheaton College and Purpose-Driven Life author Rick Warren.
