Martyn Lloyd-Jones' preaching always had an emphasis on the desperate plight of man and the power of God to save. His preaching was crystal clear on the sovereignty of God in the salvation of sinners, a concept that does not sit comfortably in our day of pragmatism, programmes and self-help books. Nevertheless it remains at the core of what the world needs to hear. Based on Romans chapter 1, this wonderful book will help you understand what the gospel is. As we live in a world that seems to be spiralling out of control, you will want to hear this message again and again.

About Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was born in Wales. He was a dairyman's assistant, a political enthusiast, debater, and chief clinical assistant to Sir Thomas Harder, the King's Physician. But at the age of 27 he gave up a most promising medical career to become a preacher. He had a far-reaching influence through his ministry at Westminster Chapel in London, England from 1938-68. His published works have had an unprecedented circulation, selling in millions of copies.

"We must rouse ourselves and realize afresh that though our Gospel is timeless and changeless, it nevertheless is always contemporary. We must meet the present situation and we must speak a word to the world that none else can speak."

Customer Reviews

Five messages preached by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones during the second world war. The messages are all from Romans chapter 1. In them the Doctor shows where men and women have gone wrong in their views on religion and morality. He explains man's condition as a sinner, and shows that this leads to the wrath of God being revealed against men. However, the Doctor doesn't end there. In the final chapter, he shows from Romans 1:16 that there is a hope for mankind, and that lies in the recovery of the Gospel message. As the Apostle Paul says, the Gospel "is the power of God unto salvation for everyone that believeth."
Although preached many years ago, the messages are still relevant for us in our generation. It may be a brief book, but I would still encourage people to get hold of it, in order to help them understand the importance and nature of the Gospel.
