Christians tend to polarize. Some have an intellectual faith, while others are more emotional. Some focus on structure while others focus on freedom. And some champion evangelism while others advocate for social action. John Stott’s classic statement of balanced Christianity shows how we can hold these tensions together in biblical, faithful ways.

Also included is an interview with John Stott with further reflections on the need for balance in contemporary evangelical Christianity.

I read this book standing in a bookstore as a college student. When done I bought it, took it home, read it two more times over the course of the year, and then somehow I lost it—no doubt because I loaned it to a friend. In this book John Stott first opened my mind to the delightful joy of truths we cannot always resolve but to which we can commit ourselves in tension. Stott writes here of balance, and as a person he exhibited it. In your hands is one of the great tracts of twentieth-century evangelicalism. Savor it.

Christian Mission in the Modern World

  • Authors: John Stott and Christopher J.H. Wright
  • Edition: Updated and expanded
  • Publisher: IVP

Jesus sends us into the world just as the Father sent him. And yet thousands of years later Christians continue to disagree on what this involves. Some believe that the focus of Christian mission is evangelizing and “saving souls.” Others emphasize global justice issues or relief and development work. Is either view correct on its own?

John Stott’s classic book presents an enduring and holistic view of Christian mission that is just as needed today. Newly updated and expanded by Christopher J.H. Wright, Christian Mission in the Modern World provides a biblically based approach to mission that addresses both spiritual and physical needs.

With his trademark and unparalleled clarity and conviction, Stott illuminates how the Great Commission itself not only assumes the proclamation that makes disciples, but also teaches obedience to the Great Commandment of love and service. Wright has expertly updated the original book and demonstrates the continuing relevance of Stott’s prescient thinking. This balanced approach to mission offers timeless guidance for current and future Christians to embrace Jesus’ unconflicted and holistic model of ministry.

John Stott’s Christian Mission in the Modern World is a small classic and remains surprisingly relevant for today. And no one is more qualified than Chris Wright to bring the discussion up-to-date—to expand, reframe and even sometimes disagree with Stott’s work on certain issues within the evangelical and biblical commitment shared by both. This will prove to be an excellent basic introduction to mission and evangelism, along with providing a biblical understanding of salvation, dialogue and conversion for Christian mission. But it will also be a helpful guide to how evangelical thinking on mission has developed in the past four decades by two of its premier exponents.

—Michael W. Goheen, author of Introducing Christian Mission Today and A Light to the Nations

Christopher J.H. Wright (PhD, Cambridge) is international ministries director of the Langham Partnership, providing literature, scholarships, and preaching training for pastors in Majority World churches and seminaries.

An ordained priest in the Church of England, Chris spent five years teaching the Old Testament at Union Biblical Seminary in India, and thirteen years as academic dean and then principal of All Nations Christian College, an international training center for cross-cultural mission in England. He was chair of the Lausanne Theology Working Group from 2005-2011 and the chief architect of The Cape Town Commitment from the Third Lausanne Congress, 2010.

Problems of Christian Leadership

Christian leaders face challenges. But God works with us and through us to accomplish his purposes. Available here for the first time in English is John Stott’s practical wisdom for younger leaders. Speaking personally from his own experience, Stott addresses issues of discouragement, self-discipline, relationships and youth.

Also included are reflections on John Stott’s ministry from two of his former study assistants, Mark Labberton and Corey Widmer, plus excerpts of Stott’s writing about ministry, leadership and service.

The tone throughout Problems of Christian Leadership is tender and warm; Stott comes across as a kind, older uncle whose simple, practical wisdom conceals a depth and durability that could be overlooked by the casual reader. I would recommend this book warmly as a resource for any who are involved in mentoring or encouraging emerging leaders. I also see much in Stott’s advice that is directly applicable to the contemporary realities facing Canadian Mennonite Brethren.

—Gil Dueck, Mennonite Brethren Herald, February 2014

Concise, clear, and at times pungent, this little work bears all the hallmarks of the careful Bible exposition for which Stott was so well-known. Problems of Christian Leadership will be helpful as an encouraging refresher or as a helpful primer for those who are called to serve as leaders in ministry settings.

—James M. Garretson, Banner of Truth, August-September 2014
