The Passionate Preaching of Martyn Lloyd-Jones
England in the twentieth century was in the grips of theological liberalism. It was thought that no modern person could accept the supernatural claims of the Bible. Preaching was filled with sentimental platitudes and empty moralizing.
Into this dark atmosphere stepped the man known as “the Doctor.” D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones was a physician by training, and he embarked on a promising career in medicine. But after his conversion, Lloyd-Jones experienced an irresistible call to preach. In answering this call, he engaged in a ministry that would exert profound influence on both sides of the Atlantic. From his pulpit at Westminster Chapel in London, he set a new standard for faithfully and fully proclaiming the Word of God while combating the influence of theological liberalism in his day.
In The Passionate Preaching of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Dr. Steven Lawson tells the story of the man who, more than nearly anyone else, is responsible for the resurgence of expository preaching in England and America.
