Full Product Description
His life could have been so different. Born to privilege, John Stott focused instead on service to God and other people. 'I am going to throw myself body and soul into the struggle for right,' he wrote to his father as a twenty-year-old. 'My desire is to see the world a better place, and I will not spare myself'
He became Rector of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London in 1950 at the age of twenty-nine, and Chaplain to the Queen in 1959. He chaired the National Evangelical Anglican Congress in 1967 and 1977, shaped the Lausanne Covenant, pioneered the London Lectures, and founded both Langham Partnership International and London Institute for Contemporary Christianity. He became known internationally for his writing and preaching, and bird-watching. He led fifty university missions worldwide.
Discover John Stott, the man behind the man, as observed by his friends, former colleagues and biographer.

Inside Story: The Life of John StottMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
This detailed study of John Stott’s life is also the story of the emergence of Evangelical thinking as a mainstream part of present day belief across the denominations. John Stott’s involvement in that emergence is bound up with his life’s work at All Souls, Langham Place, London and preaching, teaching and leading, around the globe.
As Roger Steer tells John Stott’s story from his birth to the present day, he introduces us to the many men and women who worked with or disagreed with this charismatic man. He has preached to many thousands of people in very many countries and situations, he has written best selling books that have brought people to Christ, while retaining his gift of remembering individuals and forging lasting relationships.
His upper-class background and education gave him easy access to important and moneyed people but he always has a heart for the poorest of his congregation and worked towards including them in the life of the church. I could go on and on, there is so much material in this book that it is not a quick read, but it is an inspiring and enjoyable one.
