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

40 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 595 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
Why I am a Christian by John R. W Stott( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why Jesus? Perhaps you're intrigued with what you have heard about Jesus Christ. Or you might have had the funny feeling that God wants to get your attention. Or maybe you're simply looking for meaning and direction in your life. John Stott has spent a lifetime wrestling with questions about Jesus both personally and in dialogue with skeptics and seekers around the globe. Now in Why I Am a Christian he provides a compelling, persuasive case for considering the Christian faith. If we take an honest look at Jesus, we will discover that following him gives us the purpose, identity and freedom we've been searching for--and far more than we had ever imagined

Guard the Gospel; the message of 2 Timothy by John R. W Stott( Book )

20 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The words which crystallize the letter for me are the two little monosyllables su de (but as for you), which occur four times. Timothy is called to be different. He is not to yield to the pressures of public opinion or conform to the spirit of his age, but rather to stand firm in the truth and the righteousness of God. - Preface
The Letters of John : an introduction and commentary by John R. W Stott( Book )

16 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
