This book doesn't have the attachment that Tim Dudley-Smith has to Stott but being of a different generation Chapman nevertheless provides an insight to both the Church of England and Anglican Communion over the last 60 years in general and Anglican Evangelicals in particular. Stott's passion for Jesus and His kingdom shines through this concise work. The willingness he shows to change course for the sake of the Gospel in a changing world is a model for all Christian leaders worldwide, for whom John Stott gave his time and energy. Moving beyond the British Isles and English speaking churches from the beginning of his ministry, Stott truly is a giant amongst 20th Century Christian leaders. The fullness of his legacy and witness to the possibilities of what God can do on this celestial ball will only be known at the end of time, before then thousands if not millions of Christians have benefitted from John Stott's Godly ambition.
