John Stott, R.I.P.

John Stott passed away this morning at the age of 90.  He has been described as the most influential Christian than Christians have never heard of.  He was a hero to many local church pastors, one of the finest Bible expositors in the world and a beloved friend to rich and poor everywhere.

 

In memory of Dr Stott, a great quote from him and then a great quote about him:

From him:  The Gospel is good news of mercy to the undeserving. The symbol of the religion of Jesus is the cross, not the scales.

About him: Kenneth Kantzer, “When I hear him expound a text, invariably I exclaim to myself, ‘That’s exactly what it means! Why didn’t I see it before?'”
