British evangelical leader John Stott passed away yesterday at the age of 90. Unknown to many Americans, Stott was known by some as the evangelical pope. I could say much about this man who has both preached well and lived well, serving those in developing nations through his works behind the scenes more than many will ever know. Anugrah Kumar’s post offers a great perspective.

The best insight for those curious about Stott’s life would be his preaching itself. The clip below is from 2007, one of the most recent videos of him available, speaking on why Christian evangelism is often ineffective. (I think you’ll appreciate his response.)
