Briefly, this is simply a book of some of the most outstanding sermons that Stott delivered between 1965 and 2000 AD at the Keswick Conventions.
I admit that reading some sermons can be a boring experience but with Stott’s double listening, masterful expository style, and genuine Christ-like spirit, I have not found that to be true about John Stott’s sermons. From my first hearing of Stott speaking on the upper room discourses at the Urbana Missions conference back in the 60’s to hearing him and seeing his leadership in the Lausanne movement, to his commitment to making radical (kingdom) disciples, I thank God for this man. He has taught me much by word and example.
Also, as I have stated in this publication regarding the late Francis Schaeffer, thank God that he led these men to write books for us to embrace, study, and learn from as we attempt to double listen and make radical disciples.
