In 2019, Ian was made an honorary Doctor of Divinity by ACTS Institute of Higher Education, Bengaluru, India. The honour coincided with the 40th Anniversary of the foundation of ACTS. Over the past four decades Ian has shared in the teaching programme and, in the late 1980s, he, Ruth and their four sons spent a working sabbatical based at the College. The honorary doctorate was awarded in recognition of Ian’s work across the wider Christian community. During his visit Ian delivered the annual Theological Book Trust Lecture on the subject: Radical Discipleship – The Legacy of Rev Dr. John Stott and the implications for Global Mission.
