Evangelical leaders in Brazil have joined the chorus of voices around the globe mourning and commenting on the death of one of the greatest evangelical leaders the world has ever seen, John Stott.
Church leaders from Brazil have reacted to the news of his death by describing Stott as providing the world with one of the greatest commentaries on the book of Romans ever; alongside theological legends such as Martin Luther and Karl Barth.
Evangelist and Biblical scholar John Stott passed away Wednesday afternoon in England. The respected evangelical leader has left behind a host of close friends and bothers-in-Christ in Brazil, who have described Stott to The Christian Post as a “spiritual leader and friend.”
The Anglican Bishop Robinson Cavalcanti, who received Stott’s visit to Brazil in 1980, said to The Christian Post that was just thinking recently about going to England to visit him.
“It was a loss… He was one of the main evangelical thinkers of the last century,” said the bishop.
Cavalcanti said he had a close relationship with Stott through the Alliance Biblical University (ABU), and the Lausanne Movement, of which he was a member.
