What models or examples are there in the Christian corpus of clergymen or pastors who were on fire for God, preached holiness and righteousness hard-core with passion and zeal, and were evangelistically driven? Even as street preachers? Very few that I know of. I can’t say all of these street preached, but I’m inclined to think these were mostly CLERGY ON FIRE. See Leonard Ravenhill’s Sodom Had No Bible, “Part 2: Portraits of Revival Preachers.”
All five of these men were on-fire-for-God, holiness-preaching pastors, whom Leonard Ravenhill (d. 1994) looked up to, as models of the Christian ministry! Chadwick was his mentor. S. E. Dwight was the great-grandson of Jonathan Edwards.
