Lent with John Stott

16 Mar

I realise that it is normal to give things up for Lent, but after a discussion at my church’s local housegroup, I decided to take something up instead. I will be reading “The Cross of Christ” by John Stott.

It’s not as hefty a tome as I thought (thankfully) so I may get it finished over Lent. It’s something I’ve been meaning to read, and should make Easter more meaningful when it comes.

Small claim to fame: I met Dr Stott when he was in Albania, and presented him with a video. I don’t expect he remembers me, though!

    Hi Karen, John from Housegroup (in case you dont recognise my surname). I recommend John Stott’s book, have you read it all?

      I’ve read parts one and two now. I know Lent is over, but I will go on to read the third part. It’s really good. I’m finding the history of Christian thought on these issue particularly interesting – he goes right back to Tertullian and Polycarp.
