What exactly are we? The modern world has many answers to that question, each of which has consequences for the choices we make about our own life and the lives of others.
In this short, simple book, Mark Meynell wants to help confused Christians understand what God has said about these questions in the scriptures, and offers a positive and liberating way forward as we discover what true humanity really is.

Inside the disciplined mind of John Stott
Like many preachers, the great British evangelical leader John Stott was always looking for illustrations to include in his sermons and writings. Beginning in the 1940s and continuing until the early 2000s, when he came across something he thought he could use, he captured it on a note card, labeled it according to topic, and filed it away in his study.
Editor Mark Meynell, who worked at All Souls Langham Place with Stott, has selected the best of these illustrations to be included in Pages from a Preacher’s Notebook. Here we see Stott’s fruitful and disciplined mind on display in hundreds of preaching notes and prayers on various subjects, all arranged topically. Whether you are a preacher or writer looking for a good idea, or an admirer of Stott who enjoys reading anything he writes, Pages from a Preacher’s Notebook illuminates his careful working methods for the benefit of readers today.

Appendix 3: Some Words From Inside The Cave
When Mark Meynell spoke in a central London church, more than 1,500 people hung on to his every word. What they couldn’t have known was that their minister was terrified of being laid bare in public.
Fear of shame and exposure is crippling, even if, as in Mark’s case, the sufferer is innocent. And it’s one of the most devastating elements of depression, although certainly not the only one.
Mark invites us into the darkness of his cave. We relive significant moments from boarding school, Uganda, Berli, and London. We visit the Psalms, Job, and The Pilgrim’s Progress.
If you’re after neat conclusions and a fair-weather faith, this is not for you. This book serves up gritty reality and raw honesty, but also the heartfelt hope that the author’s brokenness “can somehow contribute to another person’s integration” and “inspire their clinging while beset by darkness or fog or blizzards.”
