Evangelical Alliance pays tribute to the late John Stott
As the world mourns the death of the Reverend John Stott, who died yesterday aged 90, Steve Clifford, general director of the Evangelical Alliance, said: "John Stott's life, writing and teaching had a profound impact on the 20th century Church.
"He will be remembered as a generous evangelical, committed to a gospel of truth packed with grace which could with confidence be communicated to a lost world. He will go on to be remembered as one of the leaders of the evangelical movement and will continue to have an impact for generations to come. While we mourn the loss of our brother in Christ, we rejoice that he has gone to be with the Lord he so loved."
