Overview

Jesus Christ has a way of cutting right across our logic and opinions, just as he did while on earth. Who God is, the authority of Scripture, the way of salvation, morality, and worship are just some of the areas where he turns things on their heads. Are you willing to follow this controversialist Christ?

Every thoughtful Christian ought to read this classic exposition of evangelical essentials. Though written more than forty years ago, its central message stands and is needed today more than ever. John Stott expounds persuasively, generously, lucidly, and with penetrating insight, what it means to be faithful to Jesus Christ. This is a brilliant book.

Christopher Ash, director, Cornhill Training Course

I vividly recall reading this book in its earliest version forty years ago, and it contained the stand-out set of arguments that persuaded me to commit my life to Christ later that year. Thank you, John, for all that has meant to me since.

—Andrew Fergusson, author and former Head of Communications, Christian Medical Fellowship

This is vintage Stott—clear, biblical, passionate, thoughtful and Christ-centred. A magisterial defence of biblical historic evangelical Christianity. By brilliant analysis of the debates of Jesus with the Pharisees and Sadducees of his day, he highlights modern versions of the same distortions. Profound, lucid and compelling, this book is as relevant to current debates as when it was first published.

—John Wyatt, professor of neonatal paediatrics, University College London
