About the Author
Stott is known worldwide as a preacher, evangelist and communicator of Scripture. For many years he served as rector of All Souls Church in London, where he carried out an effective urban pastoral ministry. A leader among evangelicals in Britain, the United States and around the world, Stott was a principal framer of the landmark Lausanne Covenant (1974). His books have sold millions of copies around the world and in dozens of languages. Whether in the West or in the Two-Thirds World, a hallmark of Stott's ministry has been expository preaching that addresses the hearts and minds of contemporary men and women. His life is the subject of a two-volume biography by Timothy Dudley-Smith, John Stott: The Making of a Leader and John Stott: A Global Ministry. Stott was honored by Time magazine in 2005 as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World."
