Paul David Tripp is well-known for for his teaching on practical theology. His books Age of Opportunity: A Biblical Guide to Parenting Teens and Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands: People in Need of Change Helping People in Need of Change have been helpful resources in my own parenting and discipleship. But I think he needs to be recognized for one other accomplishment.
Tripp has the greatest mustache in contemporary Christendom. Am I right? To my knowledge, no pastor, teacher or author comes close to his epic cookie-duster.
I racked my brain but couldn’t think of others. Now that I think of it, the mustache seems to have fallen out of vogue with those in the ministry. Any idea why that is?
Fans of facial hair will want to check out The Manliest Mustaches of All Time at the Art of Manliness blog. Any Christian leader that you’d like to see rock some lip whiskers?
