Product Description

The Life of Martyn Lloyd-Jones 1899-1981 This book is a re-cast, condensed and, in parts, re-written version of the author's two volumes D. Martyn Lloyd- Jones: The First Forty Years (I982) and The Fight of Faith (I990). Since those dates, the life of Dr Lloyd-Jones has been the subject of comment and assessment in many publications and these have been taken into account. The main purpose of this further biography, however, is to put Dr ... Full description

I really enjoyed this when I read it on holiday. I've been a fan of Martyn Lloyd Jones's writing for many years and have read many of his sermons and books. But I'd never really engage with his life history, although I knew bits of it. I understand this is a shorter version of Murray's previous book but nevertheless it does seem to be very thorough and gives enough background to understand what made Martyn Lloyd Jones tick as a Christian and as a Pastor and why he took the stand he did on certain issues. There is a bit of a danger that a figure like Martyn Lloyd Jones can become far too revered to a very unhelpful extent. Although the book is fairly uncritical of anything to do with him one doesn't get the feeling that it goes too far in that direction as it appreciates him rather than over revering him. Very well worth reading, and if you've never read anything by Martyn Lloyd Jones then after reading this book about him I hope it will wet your appetite to do so in the future!

Worth reading though it gets bogged down in detail sometimes. Oh for more men of God and people of prayer like this man!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice shorter work compared to the longer work published in the 1980s 18 May 2013
By Vance Furtado - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Iain Murray has done a nice job shortening the much longer original biography he wrote on Lloyd-Jones. For anyone who is a fan of Jones' published works this is a good place to learn about the man himself and the issues he dealt with during his ministry. One does not have to agree with every stand he took (I do not) to appreciate what a fine pastor and preacher Jones was and how God used him. I recommend the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Personal, clear, humbling, and Christ-exalting. Everything you would want in a good biography. 13 Dec 2013
By Pen Name - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great biography on the life and ministry of Martyn Lloyd-Jones. The use of primary sources and extended quotes makes one feel as if he is hearing the story from the great Doctor himself. Everyone should take some time to learn from the life and ministry of this man. He sought to bring the truth of the gospel to a world that didn't want to hear it. His emphasis on preaching and the centrality of the church in evangelism is as much needed in this day as it was in his own.
5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful vision of a Great God the life and words ... 10 Sep 2014
By The Least of These - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In an age of celebrity, indeed of Christian celebrity, it is such a refreshment to read a biography that talks about the man but glories his Lord for whom he labored so hard for so long. What a wonderful vision of a Great God the life and words of Martyn Lloyd Jones presents. Iain Murray has done an exceptional job of letting the events, the words, the man speak and not making his book a mere commentary. You are quickly transported into the world of MLJ and made to see a life lived in context, content, contrast, conviction, and compassionate certainty of the message he delivered so well in thought, words, and deeds. This is the kind of book that makes you want (1) to know the man Martin Lloyd Jones better AND to know his GOD, his Christ, his Holy Spirit better too. This book edifies, challenges and blessings in an exceptional manner. Like Scripture itself, it reproves, corrects, instructs, and trains in righteousness.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great recount of a great preacher who I have admired ... 29 Sep 2014
By Baybird - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Great recount of a great preacher who I have admired for years. Great admirer of Iain Murray as well although I almost stopped reading after the first paragraph of the first chapter when the math didn't add up on his birth and when his family moved to Llangeitho! If this had been by written by a man of whom I was more critical, I would have doubted the credibility of the facts for the rest of the book.

Still a worthwhile reading by a man and about a man who have helped me in my ministry.

By Matthew Proctor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whether you are a pastor, preacher, or committed layman, Martyn-Lloyd Jones' life and ministry are worth knowing. Grab this book and then move on to downloading his sermons and reading his books in print.
