Well worth listening to
As someone who heard the doctor on many occasions I can fully recommend this audio book. It gives a clear picture of his life and times although a bit repetitive in places. Its good to be reminded of how God used people in the past and causes us to pray for bold preachers who would give up this world's treasures for a better heavenly treasure

Great Quick Biography of a Godly Man
I really like this series of short biographies! The first chapter is a brief survey of Dr. Lloyd-Jones' life, while the remaining chapters explore his beliefs and how they impacted his life. Martyn Lloyd-Jones was a rising star in the field of medicine when he gave that career up to become a preacher. He believed pastors should take their calling seriously and deliver God's Word through expository sermons. His own preaching years spanned a time of social change (from the 20's to the 80's) and included a falling out with Billy Graham over altar calls. Lloyd-Jones loved church history and reformed theology and God used him greatly to point the church back to God, sound doctrine and scripture, and away from social reform and sermons full of personal anecdotes. I feel that Dr. Lloyd-Jones and I are about to become close friends as I am now ready to dive into a few of his works!

enjoyable- probably would not have read it, but listening while driving is perfect
Just finished listening to the book as I trek across on the country by car. I enjoyed the book. Rather sorry I didn't purchase a few of the others when they were on sale for under $5.00 a piece!

A Commitment to the Word of God
When I started this audiobook, I thought it was going to be a biography of Lloyd-Jones' life so I was surprised when his whole life story was completed by chapter one! But the story goes on in detail about Jones' passion for expository preaching and the influence of that passion even to today. It was fascinating!  You would think most preachers (and their hearers) would want expository preaching in their churches but that wasn't the case.  I admired his focus on wanting to preach exactly what the text is saying and not adding his own "spin" on it.  He encouraged others to do this as well and I was saddened to learn that he was met with some resistance to this.  But he did not waiver in his passion!  I'm thankful for men like Martyn Lloyd-Jones and that there are others today who are following in his footsteps to rightly handle the Word of God.  

At times the narrator, Simon Vance, seemed a little monotone but for the most part he did well.

I would definitely recommend this!

I received this audiobook as part of the christianaudio Reviewer Program at christianaudio.com in exchange for a review.

Very helpful study of Dr Lloyd-Jones powerful ministry
Very helpful work of one of the greatest expositary preachers of the church. I think he helpfully brought out many of Dr Lloyd-Jones important contributions to preaching and the christian ministry. The main weakness of this work was that Dr Lawson did not really understand Martyn Lloyd-Jones covenant theology. Martyn Lloyd-Jones was one of the greatest gifts to the church and this work highlights that.
