I feel challenged when I read about John the Baptist. This was a very radical man, whose speaking shook and challenged the people. His birth was prophesied (Luke 1:8-17), and his role given before he was born! This was a man that religious leaders of the day surely would have raised up, trained, and invited to speak in the temple. He would have been a great teacher; he was anointed by the Lord to preach. But that didn't happen. He spent his time in the wilderness. He was a man on fire for God.
