Over time, Stott put more emphasis on the need for evangelical Christians to get involved in the social and political issues of their day. This was a challenge to historic evangelical suspicions of the Social Gospel. This chapter explores why Stott made this change, and how he sought to influence English society. It examines Stott's positions on a range of issues, including abortion and homosexuality.
