John R. W. Stott (27 April 1921 - 27 July 2011) was a British Christian leader and Anglican minister who was noted as the one of the leaders of the world-wide evangelical movement. He wrote many books, including Basic Christianity and The Cross of Christ, and founded The London Institute for Contemporary Christianity in 1982 of which he was the honorary president.

Stott was born to Sir Arnold and Emily Stott. Sir Arnold Stott was a leading physician at Harley Street and an Agnostic. His wife was a Christian who was a regular attender of All Souls, Langham Place, London. In 1939, at School he heard Rev. Eric Nash speak on "What then shall I do with Jesus, who is called the Christ?". Later that evening Stott decided to commit his energies to Christ and Evangelical Christianity.

Stott studied Modern Languages at Trinity College, Cambridge in 1939 and then transferred to Ridley Hall Theological College so he could become ordained as an Anglican vicar. He was ordained in 1945 and went on to become a curate at All Souls, Langham Place from (1945 - 1950) then as Rector (1950 - 1975), and as Rector Emeritus since 1975. He was appointed a Chaplain to Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom (1959 - 1991) and an Extra Chaplain in 1991.

He has written over 40 books, including Basic Christianity and The Cross of Christ, and has founded The London Institute for Contemporary Christianity in 1982 of which he was the honorary president.
