Stott to Christian scholars

"Thirdly, we need to encourage Christian scholars to go to the frontiers and engage in the debate, while at the same time retaining their active participation in the community of faith. ..As part of their own integrity Christian scholars need to both preserve the tension between openness and commitment, and to accept some measure of accountability to one another and responsibility to one another in the Body of Christ. In such a caring fellowship I think we might witness fewer casualties on the one hand and more theological creativity on the other. " ((Stott, John R. W. Between Two Worlds The Challenge of Preaching Today. Boston: Wm. B. Eerdmans Company, 1994)

  1. Fantastic quote by Stott. I read this book several years ago and humbly think it's the best book on the practical aspects of preaching. Stott is so incredibly quotable.
