Godly Ambition

Alister Chapman

Oxford University Press

John Stott wanted to further the evangelical cause in the Church of England. He believed that the Church of England was a firmly Protestant institution and wanted it to stay that way. With the help of J. I. Packer and others, he therefore built a coalition of evangelical Anglicans to influence church policy. His efforts led to clashes with non-Anglican evangelicals, notably D. M. Lloyd-Jones. The chapter discusses the extent to which he was successful and the nature of evangelical leadership.

Keywords:   Stott, John, evangelical, Church of England, Anglicanism, Packer, J. I., Lloyd-Jones, D. M.
