John Stott, Gracious Evangelical: Rest in Peace
Posted by Wallace+
Thursday's NYT obituary, and Sunday's column by Nicholas Kristof, reflecting on the life, ministry, and leadership of the Reverend John "Uncle John" Stott, are well worth reading. Kristof's piece is golden.
I had the opportunity to meet Stott, and hear him teach, several years ago in Birmingham, Alabama. Reading about him now makes me all the more grateful for that privilege.
May he rest in peace.
