Christians tend to polarize. Some have intellectual faith, while others are more emotional. Some focus on structure, while others focus on freedom. And some champion evangelism, while others advocate social action.

John Stott's clear-headed and classic statement of balanced Christianity shows how we can hold these tensions together in ways which are biblical and faithful.

'The liberal to me, is like a gas-filled balloon which takes off into the ether and is not tethered to the earth in any way,' he says. 'The fundamentalist is like a caged bird, unable to escape at all. To me, the true evangelical is like a kite which flies high but at the same time is always tethered.'

This edition includes an interview entitled 'Life in the Spirit of Truth' between Roy McCloughry and the author.
