Basic Christianity by John R. W Stott( Book )

91 editions published between 1958 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who is Jesus? "If Jesus was not God in human flesh, Christianity is exploded," writes John Stott. "We are left with just another religion with some beautiful ideas and noble ethics; its unique distinction has gone. "If Jesus is not who he said he was, and if he did not do what he said he had come to do, the whole superstructure of Christianity crumbles in ruins to the ground. Is it plausible that Jesus was truly divine? And what might this mean for us? John Stott's clear, classic statement examines the historical facts on which Christianity stands

These commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text actually says and what it means. The introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of questions of authorship and date. This is helpful to the general reader by showing the original setting and purpose of the book. It is also invaluable for students and teachers wanting an informed treatment of the key issues which combines scholarship with respect for the text. The commentary itself takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and faces up to problems of interpretation. Additional notes give a fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the text of the Bible and to make its message plain. - Back cover

Christian mission in the modern world by John R. W Stott( Book )

53 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Stott's aim is to examine the biblical meaning of some of the great key words which are at the centre of the contemporary debate about Christian mission. In that debate, the interpretation of mission which is popular in some circles within the ecumenical movement differs acutely from that which has been held traditionally by many evangelicals. The way forward is for the two sides to meet together in a joint study of the Scripture, and to correct and enrich their own and others' understanding of mission by a deeper understanding of the biblical missionary theme and a fuller submission to it. Four adjectives describe this book: biblical, clear, fair, constructive. - Foreword

Between two worlds : the challenge of preaching today by John R. W Stott( )

8 editions published between 1982 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

“'Preaching is indispensable to Christianity.' World-renowned preacher John Stott opens this book with those five bold words. He maintains, further, that “nothing is better calculated to restore health and vitality to the church than a recovery of true, biblical, contemporary preaching.” Stott was aiming to foster such a recovery when he wrote Between Two Worlds, which has become a modern evangelical classic. The genius of this book is the way it synthesizes and distills Stott’s wealth of wisdom on preaching, focusing not so much on technical matters but more on theological foundations and on necessary personal characteristics of the preacher—sincerity, earnestness, courage, and humility. Preachers old and new will continue to find much to chew on in these pages." --

The incomparable Christ by John R. W Stott( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyone has something to say about Jesus. Sorting through the numerous books of recent years, you may find yourself lost in a thicket of viewpoints, some troubling to faith, some puzzling to the intellect. But John Stott, one of the outstanding evangelical voices of the last half century, offers in The Incomparable Christ an enriching vision of Jesus that defies measurement. In this newly Americanized, paperback edition Stott invites you to view Jesus from four perspectives: The Original Jesus: How the New Testament witnesses to Jesus in the Gospels, Acts and the Letters; The Ecclesiastical Jesus: How the church has presented Jesus historically, from Justin Martyr, Benedict and Anselm, to Thomas à Kempis, Martin Luther and Thomas Jefferson, to Gustavo Guitiérrez, N.T. Wright, and the Edinburgh and Lausanne missionary confessions of the twentieth century; The Influential Jesus: How people from St. Francis to Tolstoy, from Gandhi to Roland Allen, from Father Damien to William Wilberforce have taken inspiration from him; The Eternal Jesus: How he continually challenges today's men and women through ten visions from the book of Revelation. This is the Jesus who is like no other--worthy of your worship, your confession and your obedience as you follow him into the future. - Publisher
