John Stott, Now Home with His Lord

Dear friends, for those who have not yet heard, John Stott has departed this life and entered into the presence of Jesus. It is a sad loss for us, but a wondrous reward for John. I still remember reading his book The Cross of Christ in seminary and how it had a profound impact on my thinking about the cross and preaching the cross. This semester I’ve got my undergrad ecclesiology class doing a seminar on his book Living Church. He was a great Evangelical leader and a good faithful Anglican churchman. You can read more over at CT.

May this faithful servant rest in peace and rise in glory!

    The proper epitaph to write for a Christian believer is not a dismal and uncertain petition, ‘R.I.P.’ (requiescat in pace, ‘may he rest in peace’), but a joyful and certain affirmation ‘C.A.D.’ (‘Christ abolished death’)
