John Stott: A Life Well-Lived

John Stott died this week at age 90. For over half a century, his life and ministry have brought incalculable blessing to both individual Christians and the greater Church. Click here to read a tribute published by Christianity Today (see excerpt below).

Stott passed away peacefully at a retirement home for former Anglican clergy at St Barnabas College, just outside London.

He was a classical evangelical throughout his life, never compromising on the need for personal conversion, the authority of Scripture and the centrality of Jesus’ death for sinners.

Yet he also believed that Christian engagement with the world should not be limited to evangelism and was passionate about the moral and social dimensions of the Gospel, including justice for the poor and the care of creation.

Books by Stott that have been a help and inspiration for me include:

Between Two Worlds: The Challenge of Preaching Today

The Cross of Christ

Basic Leadership

The Living Church

The Message of the Sermon on the Mount
