The late Anglican pastor John R. W. Stott—named as one of the 100 most influential people in 2005 by Time magazine—was committed to the notion that Jesus’ lordship has ramifications for all of life. Out of this conviction grew his contention that the whole mission of God includes both evangelism and social action.
Christ the Cornerstone recovers several decades of his writings exploring the consequences of Jesus’ lordship from the pages of Christianity Today, including the regular “Cornerstone” column he wrote from 1977–1981. In them, he treats such diverse topics as Scripture, discipleship, the worldwide mission of the church, and social concerns such as the value of human life, care for animals, racial diversity, and economic inequality. Gain insight for today from the writings of a guiding light of evangelicalism.

Reading this book I was reminded that a key feature of biblical Christianity is the joy of truth. We see biblical thinking on different issues presented in ways that are intellectually credible, delightfully relevant to our present experience, refreshingly enriching to our spiritual lives, and powerfully motivating to service. John Stotts ministry exemplified these characteristics well, and these essays are an excellent sampling of his thinking.

John Stott has long been one of my favorite authors - a rigorous thinker and Bible scholar, an evangelical statesman, and a fervent encourager of Gods people all over the world. This collection of articles demonstrates the breadth of Stotts wisdom and the timeless truth he applied to timely concerns.

For many years when I was asked my opinion about matters of Christian doctrine or practice, I would reply, "well, what does John Stott say, I'm sure I agree with him." The statement did not come from hero worship, but from recognizing the biblical breadth, disciplined insights, and measured conclusions that shone out from the books and articles that came from his pen. The publication of these collected essays is a great boon since it allows more readers to learn more from Stott. No one who dips into these pages will be disappointed. Mark Noll, author of Turning Points: Decisive Moments in the History of Christianity
John Stotts voice of wisdom and his articulation of a balanced, biblical Christianity has only become more relevant and prescient since his death in 2011. This collection of previously unpublished writings will be an invaluable gift to the church that is seeking to live faithfully in a complex world.
