From the pulpit at Westminster Chapel in London, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones set a new standard for faithful and passionate preaching, a standard that continues to be relevant today. Lloyd-Jones was a physician by training and had begun a promising career in medicine before sensing an irresistible call to preach. Surrounded by theological liberalism, he began a pulpit ministry that would exert profound influence on both sides of the Atlantic.
This biography so inspired me that I had to go find his sermons.
- Typo: Chapter Two
Very good so far! But just an FYI... you have a typo in chapter two's title. It says "Soverignly" instead of Sovereignly.
Surprisingly brilliant.Less of a biography, but an encouragement for preachers. A must listen.

- Some nice info, mainly for preachers
I wasn't expecting much from this book since biographies aren't my top genre, but unlike some genre's that were too technical and lost me quickly, I had enough curiousity to make it through this one. The first chapter gives a general overview of his life, which sounds like it came out of a textbook, and while it made me wonder what made this guy such a significant preacher, it also had me wondering what else the book could possibly cover. I listened on and gathered a few noteworthy points from the book. He's a Calvinist and preaches solely from Scripture, letting the Spirit speak through him, but understanding the value of outlining his sermons and having serious study of the Bible. At the end of the book, I still didn't really understand how he could preach solely from scripture without simply reading to his congregation. How could he use his own words and stay committed to sole scripture? T he one thing it is missing is an example sermon so we can hear how he did preach...they don't have a recording of any of his sermons somewhere? I think he has a good perspective for informing preachers and church leaders and I am sure he already has, but as a regular church member, I don't feel I am the target audience for this book.
- It is what it is.
This is a very informational audiobook that presents practically everything you would ever want to know about Martin Lloyd-Jones, but it plays like the academic textbook that i suppose it is. Straightforward, but dry. But then, it is presented pretty much as it is written. Overall, a good rendering of the actual book.
