Expositions of Romans by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
All over the world, in the most diverse situations of ministry, you will find Christian men and women, students of the Word of God, who consider that they owe an incalculable debt to the ministry of Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. For 30 years he served as Minister of Westminster Chapel, London.
During his years preaching there, Lloyd-Jones’ longest series of expositions was in Paul’s epistle to the Romans. This 14 volume set covers those sermons. It was Dr. Lloyd-Jones longest series of expositions in any biblical book, in the greatest of New Testament Epistles.
Just as Lloyd-Jones’ public ministry stood out as widely different from contemporary preaching, so his Romans came into bookshops with an appeal that took many by surprise. Not a few thought that the nature of his pulpit ministry would inhibit its continuance on paper – ‘He needed to be heard, not read.’ But those of that opinion were mistaking where his real strength lay. First of all, it lay in the truth he was speaking, not in its delivery. Further, his whole view of preaching meant that he addressed himself to the heart and conscience, as well as to the mind, and sermonic material of that kind has never failed to hold readers as well as hearers. Time was to prove that his message would reach far larger numbers by his books than had ever been possible even in his widespread ministry. The books would also go into any languages and his Romans would be read by thousands, in nations from Brazil to Korea.
