“I began this book with a preface which acknowledged that many people today are looking for a ‘fresh expression’ of the church,” writes evangelical statesman John Stott. “My concern has been that in this legitimate process of exploration they will not forget, let alone abandon, certain biblical and history-proven marks of a living church.”
John Stott, now in his eighties, has had a worldwide influence on evangelicalism through his writing and ministry at All Souls Church, Langham Place. Time magazine has recognized him as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World.” He has had a massive impact on evangelicalism. When I heard that Stott had recently written a book articulating his vision for the global church today, I knew I would have to read it.
