Who was John Stott?

If you have never heard of him. I would suggest spending some time looking through the following resources prepared by so many of those who were deeply impacted by his life and ministry. Become familiar with him.

This is another article of which JT writes:

When a significant figure dies, for whatever reasons, his or her book sales often see an immediate spike.

Some readers of this blog may feel that way, having come of age and come to Christ after John Stott had already retired from public ministry and wanting to taste for yourself the fruits of his labors.

If you feel that impulse, I’d encourage you to consider Stott’s The Cross of Christ, republished a few years ago by InterVarsity Press in a 20th anniversary edition.

“John Stott rises grandly to the challenge of the greatest of all themes. All the qualities that we expect of him—biblical precision, thoughtfulness and thoroughness, order and method, moral alertness and the measured tread, balanced judgment and practical passion—are here in fullest evidence. This, more than any book he has written, is his masterpiece.”

—J. I. Packer, Regent College

And then here is a whole page of articles on Stott written by Christian leaders honoring his legacy.

Perhaps you could take a moment to thank God for his work in and through Dr. Stott—and pray that God would be kind to raise up more like him for the gospel, for Christ.
