To enclaves of young converts tucked away in the mountains of Asia Minor, Paul wrote what is perhaps the oldest document in the New Testament--the letter to the Galatians. What problems were they facing? Among a variety of religious authorities espousing different teachings, how were they to know who was right? How were men and women to be put right with God? How could Christians in the midst of a pagan culture live lives truly pleasing to God? 'Only one way--' ansered Paul, 'through Jesus Christ.' His answer holds true for us as well. The details of our struggle have changed since Paul's day, but the principles he sets forth are as timeless as the Lord he exalts. In this book John Stott helpf us to understand and apply the message of Galatians in the face of contemporary challenges to our faith.

A 1991 Christianity Today Readers' Choice Award The Spirit moves the church into the world. That is how it has always been since the day of Pentecost when the Spirit brought thousands from many countries into the body of Christ. With the breadth and scholarly care that have marked John Stott's years of ministry, this book opens to us the early days of the church as recorded by Luke in the book of Acts. The experiences of the early church have much to say about issues that concern Christians today. What can Acts tell us about tongues and other extraordinary manifestations of the Spirit? How should churches structure themselves--with elders, deacons, pastors or all three? What should a normal Christian conversion look like? And, of course, how should the church reach out into the world with the message of salvation? These and many other topics are handled with a pastoral heart and an unwavering commitment to the authority of God's Word in our lives. As Stott concludes, "The Acts of the Apostles have long ago finished; the acts of the followers of Jesus will continue until the end of the world."

Colijn embraces a critical-realist methodology that incorporates New Testament theology, literary criticism and theological interpretation. She advocates listening to the individual authors of Scripture in their own social-cultural and historical settings, while looking for how the texts work both individually and collectively at a literary level. --from publisher description

From his home base at All Souls in London, Stott reached out to embrace a wide number of strategic Christian causes, including Scripture Union, the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (of which InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA is a member movement) and the Evangelical Alliance (with its TEAR Fund) among others. In the Church of England he made signal contributions at the 1967 and 1977 National Evangelical Anglican Congresses. These years also saw his dramatic confrontation with Martyn Lloyd-Jones over the place of evangelicals in the Church of England. His leadership was crucial as well to the success of the International Congresses on World Evangelization at Lausanne (1974) and Manila (1989), which have continued to have major influence on the church to this day. His global influence has been felt further through the organizations he established - the Langham Trust, the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity and the Evangelical Literature Trust. During this time he has published over forty books that have sold over eight million copies worldwide, as well as serving as editor for the series of expositions appreciated around the world as The Bible Speaks Today. All this and more has led prominent churchman David Edwards to consider John Stott to be, apart from William Temple (who died as Archbishop of Canterbury in 1944), "the most influential clergyman in the Church of England during the twentieth century." In this book is found the history of the maturing of the evangelical movement worldwide and the story of one of its most pivotal and inspirational leaders.

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretative task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.
