Godly Ambition

Alister Chapman

Oxford University Press

Over time, Stott put more emphasis on the need for evangelical Christians to get involved in the social and political issues of their day. This was a challenge to historic evangelical suspicions of the Social Gospel. This chapter explores why Stott made this change, and how he sought to influence English society. It examines Stott's positions on a range of issues, including abortion and homosexuality.

Keywords:   Stott, John, evangelical, social gospel, abortion, homosexuality
