Biography of John Stott, Volume 2

Among the events of the 1960s rooted most firmly in the folk-memory of many evangelicals, both Anglican and Free Church, was an occasion on which John Stott was present not primarily as speaker but as chairman.

Timothy Dudley-Smith

This was his confrontation with Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, the opening speaker at the Second National Assembly of Evangelicals, on October 18 1966. The Assembly was sponsored and organised by the Evangelical Alliance. Between much of the planning and the event itself there had been a change of General Secretary, Gilbert Kirby moving on to become Principal of the London Bible College, to be succeeded by Morgan Derham.
