Product Description

British Christian leader John Stott was one of the most influential figures of the evangelical movement during the second half of the twentieth century. Called the pope of evangelicalism by many, he helped to shape a global religious movement that grew rapidly during his career. He preached to thousands on six continents. Millions bought his books and listened to his sermons. In 2005, Time included him in its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Alister Chapman chronicles Stott's rise to global Christian stardom. The story begins in England with an exploration of Stott's conversion and education, then his ministry to students, his work at All Souls Langham Place, London, and his attempts to increase evangelical influence in the Church of England. By the mid-1970s, Stott had an international presence, leading the evangelical Lausanne movement that attracted evangelicals from almost every country in the world. Chapman recounts how Stott challenged evangelicals' habitual conservatism and anti-intellectualism, showing his role in a movement that was as dysfunctional as it was dynamic.

Godly Ambition is the first scholarly biography of Stott. Based on extensive examination of his personal papers, it is a critical yet sympathetic account of a gifted and determined man who did all he could to further God's kingdom and who became a Christian luminary in the process.

    A window on John Stott and his world

    Meets Expectations: 4
    This book doesn't have the attachment that Tim Dudley-Smith has to Stott but being of a different generation Chapman nevertheless provides an insight to both the Church of England and Anglican Communion over the last 60 years in general and Anglican Evangelicals in particular. Stott's passion for Jesus and His kingdom shines through this concise work. The willingness he shows to change course for the sake of the Gospel in a changing world is a model for all Christian leaders worldwide, for whom John Stott gave his time and energy. Moving beyond the British Isles and English speaking churches from the beginning of his ministry, Stott truly is a giant amongst 20th Century Christian leaders. The fullness of his legacy and witness to the possibilities of what God can do on this celestial ball will only be known at the end of time, before then thousands if not millions of Christians have benefitted from John Stott's Godly ambition.
