A fast-moving narrative spanning nearly nine decades and five continents, focusing on a truly unique life and legacy. Inside Story allows the reader to meet the man behind the man.
So who is this man, named by Time magazine in 2005 as one of the 100 most influential people in the world?
His life could have been so different. Born to privilege, John Stott focused instead on service to God and other people. 'I am going to throw myself body and soul into the struggle for right,' he wrote to his father as a twenty-year-old. 'My desire is to see the world a better place, and I will not spare myself'
He became Rector of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London in 1950 at the age of twenty-nine, and Chaplain to the Queen in 1959. He chaired the National Evangelical Anglican Congress in 1967 and 1977, shaped the Lausanne Covenant, pioneered the London Lectures, and founded both Langham Partnership International and London Institute for Contemporary Christianity. He became known internationally for his writing and preaching, and bird-watching. He led fifty university missions worldwide.
