Product Description

For children and teenagers. A new biography of John Stott, full of good stories.

John Stott served as Chaplain to the Queen of England and was named by TIME magazine (1995) as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. His influenced was described in The Independent as 'colossal'. This friend of Billy Graham became homeless in central London, to find out what it was like to sleep rough. He lived in two rooms for his last 40 years. He led the way for urban church-planting, and was known as 'Uncle John' by thousands of students around the world. In one university, the students hired a plane to fly low above the campus and drop leaflets to tell everyone he would be speaking that week. In another, the students from the Atheist Society came to his meetings, and the society was disbanded for a student generation!

John Stott's life-long secretary, Frances Whitehead, was able to read parts of this biography to him in the few weeks before he died. Includes questions for discussion, activities, maps and a Timeline.

Publisher's Description

Banished from his Sunday School at All Souls, Langham Place, for hiding a dagger in his sock, John Stott was a little boy who was not expected to join the ministry. Far from it. His father had other hopes and ambitions for his first born son. So John received the best education that money could buy. He went to the best schools and the best university. John's family wanted him to be a success and a credit to the Stott name.
And he was. John was bright, energetic and dedicated. However, something happened that changed the direction of his life. Family ambitions took second place to serving the Lord Jesus Christ and working for God's glory.
So bizarrely the little boy who had been banished from All Souls Sunday School eventually became its curate and then its rector. He even became Chaplain to the Queen.
What was it that brought the naughty little Sunday School student full circle? How did he get into Time Magazine as one of the 20th century's most influential people? Why is 'Uncle John' listened to by many, read by thousands and recognised across the world as a pastor, friend and leader?
His life, faith and the Word of God hold many of the answers. This book will introduce you to all three.

Editorial Reviews

"Uncle John was a unique man with an extraordinary sense of self discipline, which I am sure children today can learn from. His clear conviction of the gospel, willingness to work hard, determination to live simply and truthfully and his authentic relationship with Jesus, are a real challenge and encouragement. This account of his life has been written in a way that engages young readers, and will make them feel they have met the man who was named as Time Magazine's top 100 most influential people in the world!"

    John Stott: The Humble Leader by Julia Cameron is the latest addition to Christian Focus Publication's Trailblazers line of Christian biographies. The boys and I frequently read biographies from the Trailblazers line, which are recommended for ages 9-14 (read-aloud for ages 7-9). We find they are excellent additions to our studies, and help broaden our understanding of particular times in history, central Christian figures, and the manner in which biblical Christianity plays out in the lives of individuals. In fact, I have scheduled 9 of the Trailblazers books and 1 Torchbearers book (also Christian Focus Publications - a line of martyr biographies) for our studies of the 19th Century this coming school year.

    My boys were struck by the godly life John Stott led. Stott was so dedicated to his role as a Christian leader, that he remained celibate his entire life. I found the boys leaning forward during the descriptions of Stott's interactions with students. They especially loved hearing about a university debate between Stott and the leader of the Atheist group on campus. Shortly after the debate, the group disbanded. The boys loved that!
