Product Description

About the Author

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.

HASH(0x8d735c18) out of 5 stars Obviously inspired and miraculously inspiring. 23 Jun. 2000
By Bryan LeGare - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Martyn Lloyd-Jones is perhaps the greatest expositional writer of the twentieth century without challenge. It is clear that this work in Romans MUST have been his dearest work. His great love of God and his clear love of the "word" runs throughout. I dare say that you will not find a grander composition on assurance outside of scripture itself. This is not "easy" reading and should be approached with the same reverance and dedication as scripture. Once you are committed to the task you will have great difficulty putting them down. While I am not accustomed to spending large sums of money on books that will only end up on a shelf collecting dust, I can assure any believing Christian that you will read these over and over. What a wonderful gift to yourself and your childrens children.

HASH(0x8d735c6c) out of 5 stars Meaty, thorough exposition in classic evangelical style 6 Aug. 2004
By Leslie Richford - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Welsh evangelical preacher Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones was pastor of London's influential Westminster Chapel from 1938 to 1968. Perhaps his greatest achievement was his series of Friday evening Bible studies on the Epistle of St. Paul to the Romans, a series which took him some 14 years to preach and which he felt was so important that he began to publish it in printed form from 1970 onwards. After his death in 1981, the series was continued by the Scottish publishers, and Volume 1, containing 29 studies on chapter one on 394 pages, is not only the first volume in the series, but also the first that Lloyd-Jones was unable to edit personally.

Romans 1 consists basically of two sections, a prolegomena in which the Apostle Paul introduces himself and his message to the Roman church (which he had not founded and where he had not been in person at the time of writing), then, from verse 16 to the end of the chapter, the beginning of a vast survey of what the Christian gospel is all about. After making a great statement about the principle of justification by faith, Paul goes on to demonstrate that the heathen world at this time was exposed to the wrath of God because of its rampant unrighteousness. This unrighteousness expressed itself both through religious deviation (idolatory) and moral corruption (Paul condemns, in particular, the open flaunting of homosexuality and lesbianism, but then adds a comprehensive list of other sins).

Lloyd-Jones does not spend a great deal of time on introductory questions of a theological nature, but launches rather straight into an exposition of the chapter, proceeding verse by verse, in many cases phrase by phrase. The first 19 sermons on the prolegomena of the Epistle are what many Christians would call "meaty". Lloyd-Jones abhorred superficiality and obviously enjoyed spending week by week meditating on the details of his text. These chapters include sections on such topics as the marks and authority of a true apostle, the impossibility of "apostolic succession", the role of the Holy Trinity in the Gospel dispensation, the relationship between the Old Covenant and the New, the centrality of Christ, the need of owning him as Lord as well as Saviour, etc., etc.

From chapter 20 onwards, Lloyd-Jones turns to the second section of the chapter and deals in rather less detail with the nature of the Gospel and with the wrath of God coming on all unrighteousness of man. He skips over the passages on sexual sin and only skims the list of other sins, presumably because he was a little squeamish about talking about some of these things in public (this was 1955/1956!).

Although the book has obviously not been so carefully edited as some of the later volumes in the series, it is an amazing compendium of Christian knowledge and exegesis which I can recommend wholeheartedly to any evangelical Christian who is willing to take his time over an extremely thorough study of Romans. Lloyd-Jones is always sound, never dull and only occasionally controversial. His art of preaching was such that a word-for-word transcription comes over as linguistically and stylistically more than acceptable, although one must, of course, make account for certain repetitions. Even those who disagree with Lloyd-Jones' Calvinistic and evangelical tenets will find a great deal here to challenge, to edify and to give pause for thought. The book is a Christian all-time classic. Perhaps I should add that it is finely bound, with a dust-jacket that emphasizes its serious religious content.

P.S. For those who are too busy to study such a comprehensive survey of Romans, I recommend John Stott's exposition, published by IVP in their "The Bible Speaks Today" series: The Message of Romans: God's Good News for the World (The Bible Speaks Today)

HASH(0x8d49160c) out of 5 stars All, scholar, pastor & student, should consult with this series when in Romans 28 Oct. 2006
By David A. Bielby - Published on
Format: Hardcover
All of the great commentators I have read on Romans, including Moo, Stuhlmacher, Edwards and many others all interact with Lloyd-Jones' series on Romans. It reads more like an exegetical sermon with lots of theological commentary mixed into the exposition. It is a highly inspiring set of books.

The way I was first introduced to this set was by reading the volume which dealt with Romans 3 first. It is the kind of stuff you could use in a reading group.

Everyone who is preaching through Romans, teaching it or studying it for a serious course (college or grad) should consult this series.

HASH(0x8d735ef4) out of 5 stars Inspiring! 12 Aug. 2014
By PILGRIM TRIAD - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Martyn Lloyd-Jones was IMO the greatest preacher of the 20th century. This comm. is inspiring and thought provoking. It will lead you to a greater reverence for God as well as a deep hunger for holiness. When I first read this book, I was deeply affected by its solemn tone and high regard for Scripture. Dr. Lloyd-Jones gets more out of one sentence than most preachers today get out of one chapter of exposition. Lloyd-Jones deals in Rom. 1 with the nature of faith and the wrath of God against sin, as well as the horrible sins of sexual perversion that so mirror our modern culture. Highly recommended.
