Tim Keller did a great job of giving a tribute to John R.W. Stott during the memorial in Wheaton, IL. It is sad to see many people in this younger generation who do not know the life of John Stott and all the things that he accomplished for the evangelical movement.
John Stott’s balance of great biblical scholarship and his expository preaching enabled the Word of God to illuminate truth to many people around the world. His humility and his willingness to learn from others helped pioneer a greater understanding of the global Church. Even his vision for the Kingdom had a way of inspiring many people to get involved in world evangelization, not just in word but also in deed.
Here is the Tim Keller’s tribute to John Stott. It is definitely worth the time.
