Publisher's Description

What is a life of radical discipleship? At the root, it means we let Jesus set the agenda of our lives. We aren't selective. We don't pick and choose what is congenial and stay away from what is costly. No. He is Lord of all of life. In the last book by the leading evangelical churchman of the twentieth century, John Stott opens up what it means to truly be a follower of Jesus. In a refreshing and accesible style, he explores eight aspects of Christian discipleship which are too often neglected and yet deserve to be taken seriously: non-conformity, Christ-likeness, maturity, creation-care, simplicity, balance, dependence and death. Here, including the last public sermon he ever preached, Stott offers wisdom gained from a lifetime of consistent Christian commitment. In addition, he poignantly reflects on his last years of life and ministry. The message is simple, classic and personal: Jesus is Lord. He calls. We follow.

Author Bio

John R. W. Stott (1921-2011) has been known worldwide as a preacher, evangelist and communicator of Scripture. For many years he served as rector of All Souls Church in London, where he carried out an effective urban pastoral ministry. A leader among evangelicals in Britain, the United States and around the world, Stott was a principal framer of the landmark Lausanne Covenant (1974). His many books have sold millions of copies around the world and in dozens of languages. Stott's best-known work, has sold two million copies and has been translated into more than 60 languages. Other titles include and a daily devotional. He has also written eight volumes in series of New Testament expositions. Whether in the West or in the Two-Thirds World, a hallmark of Stott's ministry has been expository preaching that addresses the hearts and minds of contemporary men and women. Stott was honored by magazine in 2005 as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" and was named in the Queen’s New Years Honours list as Commander of the Order of the British Empire. In 1969, Stott founded the Langham Trust to fund scholarships for young evangelical leaders from the Majority World. He then founded the Evangelical Literature Trust, which provided books for students, pastors and theological libraries in the Majority World. These two trusts continued as independent charities until 2001, when they were joined as a single charity: the Langham Partnership. Langham's vision continues today to see churches in the Majority World equipped for mission and growing to maturity in Christ through nurturing national movements for biblical preaching, fostering the creation and distribution of evangelical literature, and enhancing evangelical theological education.

Publisher's Weekly

If this book of reflections on what it means to be a faithful Christian nonconformist has a poignant quality, it is not solely because its author, one of the world’s leading evangelical preachers and writers, ends it with the word: “Farewell!” The author of Basic Christianity and Why I Am a Christian focuses what is likely his final written work eight aspects of Christian practice that he feels are not taken seriously enough. These include nonconformity, Christlikeness, maturity, care for the creation, simplicity, balance, dependence, and death. Of particular interest are the author’s ideas on materialism and where Christians are asked to be active in advocating and practicing social and ecological justice. While the writer’s unadorned prose, threaded with biblical references, adheres to the essentials of Christianity orthodoxy, his deep concern for the prophetic and evangelical dimensions of Christianity comes through loud and clear. This slim volume will have special meaning for admirers, but it may also touch those unacquainted with this longtime evangelical lion as his public voice falls silent.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a (nearly) pocket-sized summary of practical and biblical wisdom from one of the giants of evangelical Christianity in the last century—one of those books that takes an hour or two to read and months to digest. Besides, who doesn't want to buy John Stott's last book?"
"While the writer's unadorned prose, threaded with biblical references, adheres to the essentials fo Christianity orthodoxy, his deep concern for the prophetic and evangelical dimensions of Christianity comes through loud and clear."
"Stott's writing is still crisp, cutting, and insightful, and his life-long love and devotion to God comes through clearly in every word of this challenging and encouraging book."
"Dr. Stott has gone to be with the Lord but he has left behind for us a rich legacy of biblical expression. Read his final words in The Radical Disciple."
"This book will be a rich inheritance for the evangelical community for decades to come."
"Considered a dean of evangelical leaders of the last half century, Stott still deserves to be heard when he speaks. He continues to be relevant in analyzing destructive philosophical and lifestyle trends. As he approaches the end of his own life, he has provoking, yet comforting thoughts regarding the deaths of believers . . . An emphatic yes for church and Bible-college libraries."
"Knowing this is Stott's final book, especially poignant are final chapters on dependence and death. Readers will reap the fruits of the author's solid grasp of Scripture and life experience. Highly recommended for anyone desiring to live an authentic Christian lifestyle."
"This slim volume is good reading, a lovely immersion into the truth of God's revelation in Scripture, full of wise words for those who find themselves on a pilgrimage through a dark world towards a City filled with divine light. The Radical Disciple is more like what I imagine he might say to a young friend who is accompanying him to the place of his retirement, and who has the chance to listen in on what Stott is most exercised to pray for when he thinks of the church he has served so faithfully for so many years. It isn't the final word, perhaps, but it's a timely one, and a word of wisdom worth heeding."
"Stott's book is not a marriage book, per se. It is a discipleship book, but most of the chapters have direct application to marriage. If we become Christlike, we will be different in our marriages. As we understand, pursue, and develop other neglected aspects of discipleship—non-conformity, maturity, simplicity, balance, and dependence—we should become better marriage partners. Stott, writing as though this is his farewell book, offers wisdom from his long pastoral experience. His transparency about his own mortality—'As I lay down my pen for the last time at the age of 88'—brought me to tears in several sections."
"Stott examines eight aspects of radical Christian discipleship. . . . Characteristically, he gives attention both to the need for personal spiritual discipline that helps the individual believer grow into the likeness of Christ and to the need for social action that gives evidence of conversion. . . . Stott left a precious gift to readers. Treasure it, and be changed by it."

    I love a simple, yet profound, challenge for my Christian life. I love a devotional work with enough bite to deliver that challenge. John Stotts final volume is just such a work.

    He covers eight areas that he feels are some neglected aspects of our calling. Short, sweet, and inspiring, these chapters carry more punch than their size suggested.

    His first chapter entitled Noncormity was extraordinary. In only eleven pages he wove the ideas of escapism and conformism being forbidden, the failure of pluralism, materialism, and relativism, and ugliness of narcissism in a meaningful way. He explained how self-love is a sign of the last days. The next chapter on Christlikeness was moving in that he wrote from the perspective that God wants his people to become like Christ, for Christlikeness is the will of God for the people of God.

    In the chapter on maturity he answers the question about what is the best description of Christianity today. What is that answer? Growth without depth. Wow! Could it be better stated? That whole chapter was memorable.

    I really couldnt connect on the next two chapters, but the rest of the chapter more than compensated for the two I felt of little worth. After these two, he got back on track.

    The final two on dependence and death were as compelling as any I have read. Dependence, even in a declining health situation, can be a good thing. His own suffering punctuated the words that made sense even if we must begrudgingly admit it. His chapter on death would not have meant as much written by a young man. He would die within two years of writing this chapter. He stared down death as one safe in Jesus and I was moved as I read it.

    Reasonably priced, not too long, but a real spiritual treatI recommend this as a treasure.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.

    John Stott was a pretty big name and having read several of his works and been both impressed and influenced by them, I was saddened by his death last year. I believe that this is his last book and he explores various issues that he sees to be neglected by many who call upon the name of Christ.

    If you are unfamiliar with Stott, this would be a good first read, as it is short and to the point and not overly complicated. I really appreciated his thoughts in chapter 4 on "Creation Care" and that is certainly an area that many Christians are waking up to. That being said, for long-time Stott fans, this book feels somewhat lacking due to its brevity. It has the look and feel of one of those inspirational books you might buy for a recent high school grad but it didn't seem to be marketed that way. Putting a positive spin on it, I could see this being useful for discussion groups of various ages.

    Discipleship is almost a buzzword these days. We need to hear men like the late J.R.W. Stott to cut through the fog and identify the key issues, which are timeless principles.

    In "The Radical Disciple" John Stott calls for those who call themselves Christians to recognize the distinctiveness of "discipleship" for the true follower of Christ.

    I had forgotten the compelling nature of John Stott's writing. By the end of the second sentence of chapter one Stott had my attention. Words like radical, non conformist, sacrifice, and holiness are the easiest to assimilate into daily living. "Escapism" and "conformism" are more typical of many well meaning Christians today. Stott points to another kind of conformism in chapter two, a conformity to Christ likeness. He goes on to provide the Biblical basis, some New Testament examples, and the practical consequences. Insightful instruction.

    Chapters four and five "Creation Care" and "Simplicity" left me unsettled. I am going to have to revisit my personal Christian world view in light of today's environment of political mistrust, international unrest, and religious division. The chapters "Dependence" and "Death" are important and soul searching.

    Stott's writing is clearly Biblical and cross cultural. John Stott's life exemplifies "The Radical Disciple" he writes about.
