Evangelical Giant John Stott Has Died

Rev. John Stott (1921-2011)
John Stott died on Wednesday, July 27th. Here is the link to an obituary at Christianity Today. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, who often writes nonsense in his futile effort to reconcile moral relativism with serious moral and social concern, this time "hits it on the nail" in this Sunday column at this link.

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.

Here is the N.Y. Times obituary link.
