This is a farewell book by one of the giants of our generation. Writing at the age of eighty-eight, John Stott calls his readers to a life of whole-hearted Christian living and identifies eight characteristics which he would like to see in every disciple of Jesus.
He highlights caring for creation as a neglected aspect of radical discipleship, describing it as an expression of worship, “… since our care of the creation will reflect our love for the Creator”.
The other seven chapters are on non-conformity, Christlikeness, maturity, simplicity, balance, dependence and death.
“A rare and personal glimpse of the sacrificial discipleship that has marked John Stott’s life so deeply.” Peter Harris
