Evangelical Truth [John Stott] 9780851119885
A personal plea for unity, integrity and faithfulness
This heartfelt statement from a contemporary Christian leader brings into sharp focus the defining essence of evangelical truth.
John Stott's masterly distillation of sixty years' reflection on Christian discipleship ranges over the history of the church and its formative teachings, as well as the worldwide church today. He expounds the trinitarian character of the evangelical faith: the gracious initiative of God the Father in revealing himself to us, of Jesus Christ in redeeming us through the cross, and of the indwelling Holy Spirit in transforming us. This is why the threefold emphasis of evangelical faith is upon the Word of God, the once-for-all nature of the work of Christ and the active, continuing work of the Spirit.
