John Stott is one of the most beloved and masterful Bible teachers of the last fifty years. His books have sold in the millions. Christians on every continent have heard and read John Stott's exposition of Scripture that was at once instructive and inspiring. The books in this series offer the essential message of Stott's teaching, largely drawn from his Bible Speaks Today volumes, and present it in a format suitable for daily reading. Questions at the end of each section make these books even more useful for individuals or groups.
"More than any other author, John Stott urges us to engage in double listening. He wants us to listen to the Word God spoke and the world God loves so that we apply the timeless truths of Scripture to the ever-changing context of our life. To help us, he explains the Bible with clarity, charity and humility. His writings propel us to Jesus and into the mission of God in the world."
"No one I have known has loved, preached, taught and lived the Bible any more than John Stott. He often quoted Spurgeon's comment that we should seek for our very blood to become 'Bibline'; so seriously should we soak in Scripture in order to know and live it. This new series will give us daily help in just such living."
"Nothing would have been more important to John Stott than to get the words of the title in the right order. We are reading the Bible with John Stott, not just reading John Stott on the Bible. For in his preaching as in his writing, John Stott's greatest gift was to help people see and hear clearly what the Bible itself actually says, and then, of course, to challenge us as to how we should respond to what we see and hear. Not all of us possess the complete works of John Stott. But we do possess the complete Bible. These sensitively edited extracts from Stott's writings will not only introduce new readers to the riches of his biblical exposition (and make them hungry for more), but will surely also introduce them to riches of God's Word they had not seen before."
