Basic Christianity by John R. W Stott( Book )

110 editions published between 1958 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 1,529 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
The Letters of John : an introduction and commentary by John R. W Stott( )

13 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 860 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
Christian mission in the modern world by John R. W Stott( Book )

43 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 834 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

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

14 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 377 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
Evangelical truth : a personal plea for unity, integrity, and faithfulness by John R. W Stott( Book )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evangelicalism has divided into various branches--conservative, progressive, Reformed, charismatic and more. Does any common ground remain that all can gladly affirm? From John Stott, one of evangelicalism's leading statesmen over the last fifty years, comes a statement that boldly places the trinitarian gospel at the center of faith. Here is an exquisite crystallization of essential beliefs about revelation, the cross and the work of the Spirit. In addition, recognizing that how we live this truth is as important as believing it, Stott calls all evangelicals to integrity, perseverance and humility. Always lucid, always engaging, John Stott directs readers of many persuasions away from their differences and toward the glorious work of the Father, Son and Spirit that God calls us to celebrate in common. --
Confess your sins; the way of reconciliation by John R. W Stott( Book )

15 editions published between 1964 and 2018 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Back in print for the first time in many years, John Stott's classic treatise on confession discusses a neglected Christian practice. Though the Bible clearly teaches that confession is a necessary part of the redemption story, many Christians are uncertain how and to whom they should confess their sins. Stott offers vital answers in Confess Your Sins: The Way of Reconciliation. After presenting the necessity of confession, Stott distinguishes between three types of confession--in secret to God, in private to a person whom our sin has injured, and in public in the presence of a Christian congregation. He shows how this threefold distinction is biblically grounded, and he critically examines the practice of confessing to a priest. Offering assurance of forgiveness to Christians, this little book opens the door to fruitful conversation about the practice of confession
