"John Stott has packed this book with what has to be some of the most perceptive, on-target observations available today on the intensely debated issues of world mission."
"No evangelical writer makes a more scrupulous attempt at clarity and fairness than John Stott. Notably fresh and illuminating."
"Stott is a precise analyst, driving right to the heart of Scripture; he is also a graceful writer, making memorably attractive all that he says."
Though Stott's reflection on Christianity in the modern world was published 30 years ago, his points are as focused and useful today as ever. The work is scrupulous, methodical, and extremely fair, and Simon Vance's delivery matches Stott's prose style wonderfully. Vance's voice is always coolly rational. Stott takes care to distinguish between a range of theological or textual points, and each time Vance aids the listener through shifting cadence and emphasis to accent such distinctions. The only weakness--and this is minor--is that Vance doesn't seem fully at ease with the terms from biblical languages.
