By now you’ll know that Rev John Stott died last week. The Telegraph obituary gives all the facts, but there are plenty more personal testimonials at the John Stott Memorial site. If it wasn’t for his vision and foresight my current job and workplace wouldn’t exist so on a really practical note I’m grateful for that. On a personal note I’m grateful for his book The Cross of Christ. As Justin Taylor points out, when people die their book sales inevitably spike. If you’re debating buying one of his books, this is the one to get.
