John Stott (1921–2011)

John Stott passed into eternal glory this morning. He was 90 years old. Stott was a bachelor, a hard worker from what I hear, a prolific writer, and a well-respected pastor. I am grateful to God for this man for many different reasons, perhaps most for helping his generation better appreciate the theological significance of our Savior’s death.

While in Wheaton, IL a few years back and touring the Billy Graham museum I noticed Graham’s personal underlined copy of The Cross of Christ was on display. I took a picture of the book (it was behind glass).

This picture gives me chills. What influence Stott was entrusted with for the glory of the Savior!

I’m thankful to God for his life and legacy.
