In his book, The Living Church, the late British theologian and pastor Dr. John Stott shares his vision of what the living Church in our century should look like. According to Dr. Stott,
There is such a thing as goodness: pursue it. The postmodern mood is unfriendly to all universal absolutes. Yet the apostle says there is such a thing as truth: fight for it. And there is such a thing as life: lay hold of it. May God enable us to make an unabashed commitment . . . to what is true, what is good, and what is real.
Among other helpful features, this book is filled with dozens of brief, memorable quotations, including the following:
- The Church’s calling is to develop a Christian counterculture. The Church lies at the very center of the eternal purpose of God.
- A living Church is a learning Church.
- Worship without holiness is hateful to God.
- Come to Christ for worship and go for Christ in mission.
This insightful book is a must-read for clergy and church workers. The message that he shares with humanity is profound.
Dr. Stott’s many books have sold millions of copies around the world and have been translated into dozens of languages. In 2005, Time magazine recognized Dr. Stott as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
