John Stott (1921-2011) lived a unique and well-lived life - and he has left an extraordinary and enduring legacy. After the inspiring Memorial Service at St Paul's Cathedral on Friday 13th January 2012, it seems good to put this page together. It will be a work in progress, so please do let me know if you come across anything else to add to it. Of course, we should always engage with what anyone says and does with an open but discerning spirit. This is not the place for hagiography but an honest, humble and positively critical spirit.

Here are a number of free other resources on iTunes and elsewhere

Here are some resources for payment:

  • CMF (Christian Medical Fellowship) has made 4 talks available on CD (for £10) on Serving Christ in Medicine
  • Regent College, Vancouver has nearly 100 talks available - but only on CD  - probably worth checking that equivalent talks of any you are interested in are not available at All Souls first.
