The good Doctor, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, is maybe one of the greatest preachers in the 20th Century. This collection of sermons was given at the church he served in London, Westminster Chapel, in 1951 with the recent memory of World War 2 fresh in his listeners minds and the raw reality of the Cold War beginning to sprout. What follows in this book are 8 sermons from John 14:1-12.
You can imagine the scene, much like today’s world. It seems like our world is filled with so much uncertainty and doubt. We don’t know what the right matters are to stand firm on (in some cases) and we wonder what to make of the future. In comes Lloyd-Jones employing God’s Word as a surgeon for the soul. Part 1, We Must Believe, gets at three chapters: Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled, Believe in God, Believe Also In Me. Part 2, The Soul and Its Future, includes In My Father’s House, I Go To Prepare a Place for You, and I Will Come Again, and Receive You. In Part 3, No Other Way, he rounds out this series with I Am The Way, The Truth and The Life and Greater Works Than These Shall He Do.
Today, you may wonder what to do with your life. What are the areas that are eternal? And, in deeper ways, how does your heart find a place to live in light of all that’s happening in the world. I would encourage you to grab this group of sermons to find the comforting words of Jesus used in ways that will sure encourage you. I highly recommend this book.
