A Response to Swaim’s “Stott Bowdlerized”

By James Ernest

51ssxiYXhlL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_You can imagine my dismay at reading on Twitter that the press I now serve has allegedly insulted John Stott by high-handedly ruining his classic book. Of the tweets I have seen, the most damning, perhaps, is this: “What Eerdmans did to John Stott’s Basic Christianity is an insult to both the book’s author and its readers.” Dozens of others are not so judgmental but nevertheless effectively echo and extend the bad news. All link to the same article.
