The greatest mustache in contemporary Christendom

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?
