John Stott

A great man of the faith
passed away yesterday:
John Stott.
April 27, 1921 - July 27, 2011

He leaves a legacy for us.

One of my favorite books he
wrote was on Birdwatching.

The Birds Our Teachers: Biblical Lessons from a Lifelong Bird Watcher

I had read his most recent book and I
think his last after hip surgery a year
ago. It is one to reread.

Good article written 7 years ago that
Tim Keller has on his twitter:

There's been a lot of twaddle written recently about the supposed opposition between faith and reason. To read Stott is to see someone practicing "thoughtful allegiance" to scripture. For him, Christianity means probing the mysteries of Christ. He is always exploring paradoxes.
