A review of “The Radical Disciple“.  

For some forty years now, I”ve had a growing respect for the faith-tradition known as Anglican, or The Church of England. I often wonder just how many American Christians understand the debt we owe to this tradition whether we are Baptists, Methodists, Nazarenes, Episcopalians, Salvation Army (Sallies) and many other independents that came from the bosom of the English Church.

I don’t mind recording my own debt publically for men like J.I.Packer, J.C.Ryle, Charles and John Wesley, and a host of others from the Anglican Church. One such man who has blessed American churches for those forty years and especially the cause of international evangelism and missions is John Stott. It appears that his final book will be his farewell as far as his written contributions to the churches. Recently I found this great review which I will consider my own tribute to John Stott and his faithfulness to the Biblical gospel of Jesus Christ.

“This is a book you will want to read if you have had any contact with John Stott’s teaching ministry before. Though he is far too humble to say it about himself, it comes from a man who has fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith (2 Tim 4:7). He has not asked us to do anything that he has not modelled first in his own life. It is a fitting farewell from a remarkable servant of God and I pray that his vision of radical discipleship will be fully embraced by the next generation.”
