John Robert Walmsley Stott was a scholar and Anglican minister. His influence spans decades and continents. One of the principal authors of the Laussane covenant in 1974, promoting efforts in world evangelism grounded in Christ's great commission in Matthew 28.
By nature, only a limited number of people over Stott's many years of ministry had the pleasure of hearing his preaching in person. Yet, through his voluminous writings he touched the lives of millions of men and women. With a characteristic thoughtfulness joined with sharp theological insight, John Stott writings on Christian living, biblical exposition, and practical application continue to inspire and encourage believers today from all walks of life. This ten volume collection examines a variety of topics and themes, all of which had a central place in John Stott's life and ministry.
John Stott was, in my opinion, the greatest Bible expositor of the past few decades because he knew how to let his deep study of the Word highlight relevant points for the daily life and thought of ordinary people.

In our world of war and terror, there is nothing more important to contemplate than the cross of Christ. May Stott’s reflections give us the courage to fight, with all the love within us, the war of the slaughtered Lamb. The cross teaches us there is something worth dying for but nothing worth killing for, that we can conquer evil without mirroring it.

John Stott is loved and revered in our home.
