John was renowned around the world as the author of more than 50 books including Basic Christianity (translated into 63 languages), the Cross of Christ, Issues Facing Christians Today, and commentaries on many books of the New Testament in the Bible Speaks Today series. He was one of the authors of the Lausanne Covenant and was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2005.
The President of EFAC Australia, Archbishop Peter Jensen, has written the following about the influence of John Stott.

There are a few, a very few, who deserve to be called a Prince among the people of God. John Stott was one such.
