'I would like to leave behind me, as a kind of spiritual legacy, this little statement of evangelical faith, this personal appeal to the rising generation ... This is how I would wish to be remembered and judged' - John Stott
Evangelicalism is now so divided that some would question whether the word is even worth using. Is there real common ground which can hold us together? This heartfelt appeal from John Stott shows that there is. Distilling decades of reflection on Christian discipleship he shows the Trinitarian heart of evangelical faith: the gracious initiative of God the Father, in revealing himself to us; of Jesus Christ, in redeeming us through his cross and resurrection; and of the indwelling Holy Spirit in transforming us. The threefold emphasis of evangelical faith is upon the Word of God, the once-for-all work of Christ, and the active, continuing work of the Spirit.
Directing us away from our differences, he reminds us of the glorious work of Father, Son and Spirit which unites us all.
The late John Stott was regarded as a key influence in modern-day Christianity whose work has shaped the faith of a generation. Alongside a worldwide teaching and preaching ministry, he founded the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity and was Rector of All Souls, Langham Place
