John Stott has passed away. The English evangelical leader who inspired so many American believers. When I was a student leader in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, it was a source of pride that our organization was linked to this man.
He’s probably most famous for Basic Christianity and The Cross of Christ. The latter can be tough-going in parts, as it gets deep into soteriology. For eggheads, the best intro to Stott might be his various NT commentaries, or his dialogue-with-a-theological-liberal-Christian book Evangelical Essentials.
