What did the Puritans and their successors teach? Was their teaching biblical? What can we learn from them for our life and witness today? Dr Lloyd-Jones believed that pursuing such historical questions is vital to the well-being of the church today.
In these addresses given at the Puritan Studies and Westminster Conferences between 1959 and 1978, Dr Lloyd-Jones ranges widely over the history of Reformed Christianity, from the Reformation to the nineteenth century, drawing lessons from major figures like Calvin and Knox, Bunyan and Owen, Edwards and Whitefield, and from lesser-known men such as Henry Jacob, John Glas and Robert Sandeman.
Written in an absorbing and stimulating style, these studies continue to speak with great insight and relevance to the church of the twenty-first century.
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.
