|Rev. John Stott (1921-2011)|
My personal, recent memory of him--although I never met him--is this: I gave one of his books to a Muslim friend of mine whom I met at a Starbucks. The book is pictured at left. I could think of no better book, outside of the Gospels, to give as an introduction to Jesus to someone from a completely different tradition. Starbucks has its uses; John Stott still has and will have his uses as long as we have his writings.
