One thought on “Dr. John Stott

  1. I read John Stott’s book Basic Christianity in high school. What a fantastic book – an eloquent and well-reasoned argument for the deity of Jesus Christ and the proper human response to Him. It certainly had a big impact on my life. I wish I could see the party Heaven is throwing for him right now.
