I love reading Biographies of those who have served the Lord. Timothy Dudley-Smith has evident affection for his subject but still gives us an honest accessment the factors that made John Stott the leader that he became. Well worth your time.

Recommends it for: Those interested in the life of John Stott
A biiography of John Stott, one of the most influential evangelical theologians in England. Kind of dry, but most biographies are.
