Nothing would have been more important to John Stott than to get the words of the title in the right order. We are reading the Bible with John Stott, not just reading John Stott on the Bible. For in his preaching as in his writing, John Stott’s greatest gift was to help people see and hear clearly what the Bible itself actually says, and then, of course, to challenge us as to how we should respond to what we see and hear. Not all of us possess the complete works of John Stott. But we do possess the complete Bible. These sensitively edited extracts from Stott’s writings will not only introduce new readers to the riches of his biblical exposition (and make them hungry for more), but will surely also introduce them to riches of God’s word they had not seen before.

No one I have known has loved, preached, taught and lived the Bible any more than John Stott. He often quoted Spurgeon’s comment that we should seek for our very blood to become ‘Bibline’; so seriously should we soak in Scripture in order to know and live it. This new series will give us daily help in just such living.
—Mark Labberton, president, Fuller Theological Seminary, author of Called
On every continent, churches and church leaders called Stott ‘Uncle John’ because he pastored, mentored and loved us. He pointed us to Jesus. He taught us the Scriptures with honesty, clarity and humility. He lived what he taught, and he inspired us to do the same. This book is your chance to be pastored and mentored by Uncle John too.
—Greg Jao, vice president and director of campus engagement, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship
Stott’s guidance is traditional and focuses on fundamental teachings with an attempt to make the sermon’s teaching understandable and more personal for modern believers of all ages.
