John Stott

During his nearly 70 years as an evangelical leader, English cleric John Stott (1921-2011) shaped scholarship in the fields of biblical interpretation and discipleship, authored over 50 books—his 1958 Basic Christianity is now an evangelical staple—and hundreds of sermons, and persisted in his love of bird watching. While Stott stayed rooted in the Church of England and his home church of All Souls, Langham Place, his ministry extended to the global church: In 1974 Stott founded Langham Partnership International to equip pastors and missionaries and served as a principle author of the Lausanne Covenant, an evangelism manifesto that continues to guide international missions efforts.
