For many of us caught in the deserts of American Protestantism, Stanley was the fresh drink of water we needed. He opened new ground to be ploughed, for new seed to be sown, so a new crop of theologians could bear witness to God’s work in Christ for the cultural challenges we are facing. He has left an indelible mark on us, changing the way we do and think theology, indeed opening new and faithful ways we might truly know God. I pray this extraordinary gathering of Stanley’s work, articles, lectures, podcasts, may further his impact. So that many more may be blessed the way I have by this man’s extraordinary labours for Christ, His church and His Kingdom.
