I think of him more as an influencer really than a celebrity – but Rick Warren made the Forbes Top 100 list at number 60 a couple of weeks ago. Here’s what they had to say about him and here’s a link to the complete list, too:
When religious publisher Zondervan released California pastor Rick Warren’s “The Purpose Driven Life,” it expected robust sales of about a quarter-million copies. There are now 24 million copies in print, with Zondervan unloading 100,000 copies over the Christmas season alone. And the book achieved mainstream notoriety in 2005 when kidnap victim Ashley Smith said that she used its techniques to persuade her captor to release her. Warren also runs the Web site Pastors.com, where he peddles “Purpose Driven” spinoffs.
Reason he made the list: Intelligent, Trustworthy. So true.
