These sermons of Martyn Lloyd-Jones - edited by Dr Michael Eaton, and expert on Lloyd-Jones' theology - were preached at a time when the nations of Europe had been engaged in a fierce conflict. Lloyd-Jones took the time to teach his congregation about the threat of persecution and suffering and how it should be viewed.
By 1947, when the war was over, he sought to refocus people on the basics of the faith with a series entitled "What is a Christian?" based on Romans 8.
These messages illustrate a period where things were dark and dangerous and the threat of terror constant. Since the rise of terrorism in the 21st century, these sermons have become startlingly relevant to what is happening in our own times. Readers will find hope, encouragement, and a balanced view of how Christians should live during an age of terror.
Michael Eaton has served as lecturer in Old Testament at Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and is pastor-at-large of Chrisco Fellowship of Churches in Nairobi, Kenya. He is the author of numerous commentaries designed for ordinary people, the Tyndale Commentary on Ecclesiastes, and other books on the Atonement, Israel and Spiritual Gifts.
Koorong -Editorial Review.
Born in Cardiff, Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a practicing physician until leaving medicine to become the minister of a Welsh Presbyterian Church.
Minister of Westminster Chapel and co-founder of both InterVarsity Fellowship and the Banner of Truth Trust, this brilliant Welshman was arguably the greatest evangelical preacher of the 20th century.
Best remembered for the power of his sermons in an age of spiritual decline and apathy, Dr Lloyd-Jones exercised his formidable intellect in the service of a thoroughly biblical faith, inspiring his contemporaries to think through the implications of their beliefs for both Church and world.
Dr Lloyd-Jones never tired of calling the Church to revival, to foundational doctrines and to a prayerful zeal for authentic apostolic experience. His rich legacy of recorded and published sermons continues to be used by God to transform lives today.
