What person has most influenced your faith?

Has there been one person on your life who has strongly influenced your faith? How did that person influence you? Through words? Actions? Leading by example? Living their faith in an inspirational way?

Thomas More: Man of Integrity

[ Edited ]
I think hearing the story of Sir Thomas More's life would inspire a person of any persuasion. I first learned about him when I read Robert Bolt's thought-provoking play, A Man for All Seasons, which I highly recommend:

You can see his famous portrait, by Hans Holbein the Younger, at The Frick Collection in New York City:

Re: Thomas More: Man of Integrity

There was also a very good film made in 1966 about More's life pmath, screenplay adaptation by Bolt:-

And More's Utopia might be a good book to discuss in the British Classics section.

(BTW we can now paste/type URLs onto the boards without having to put the HTML tags in - B&N techies have fixed it!)

A Man for All Seasons

[ Edited ]
I really enjoyed watching the 1988 adaptation, with John Gielgud as Cardinal Wolsey: have you seen it? Since the play is now a British classic, it would also be a good choice! Automatic conversion of URLs to links will certainly save us all time.
