A charming book, describing, in the words of Chris Wright, 'one of the greatest partnerships in church history.' You can't understand John Stott’s ministry without knowing of Frances Whitehead.
This is a story which John Stott himself hoped would one day be told. It is widely agreed that Stott could not have been half so effective without Frances Whitehead at his side. He invited her to become his secretary when she was still a young Christian, at that time working for the BBC. The story of the non-interview is noteworthy. Having done secret war work as a mathematician, she brought a good mind as well as determination. Stott relied on her.
They are both described (by Mark Labberton, President of Fuller Seminary) as 'fast, exacting and determined', with Frances matching Stott's gold standard again and again. 'She was as remarkable in her way as John Stott was in his.' They were good friends, and she was named in his Will as 'My friend and Executor'. Neither married and both were completely dedicated to John's ministry. Timeline, Family trees, Appendices, and over 30 photographs.
