The Radical Disciple
John Stott
InterVarsity Press, 2010
142 pages 

I was a BBC announcer in London when John R. W. Stott came into our radio studios for interviews related to the launch of Basic Christianity, which he described as a “key book for those who want to get at the truth about Jesus Christ.” I remember him as a quiet-spoken, unassuming man who went on to have far more impact on listeners than the media celebrities around him pressing their way into Broadcasting House.

As columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote in The New York Times recently: “Mr. Stott didn’t preach fire and brimstone on a Christian television network. He was a humble scholar whose 50-odd books counseled Christians to emulate the life of Jesus—especially his concern for the poor and oppressed—and confront social ills like racial oppression and environmental pollution” (July 31, 2011).
