Godly Ambition

Alister Chapman

Oxford University Press

The chapter examines Stott's ministry to university students. Stott preached to students on five continents, which was a major reason for his growing international reputation among evangelicals. The chapter explains why students in England were receptive to Stott's message in the 1950's, and the challenges he faced once the cultural climate changed in the 1960's. Stott's working relationship with American evangelist Billy Graham is also examined. The chapter looks at the 1950's controversy over whether people like Stott and Graham were fundamentalists.
