Date September 6, 2011

‘Murray’s engaging biography paints an endearing portrait of the well-known Southern California pastor . . . In these days of trendy, self-promoting, culture-infatuated, success-driven preachers, John MacArthur Jr.’s steadfast confidence in the power of God’s Word is a tremendous model to ministers and churches everywhere . . . yet another outstanding biography from one of the finest Christian biographers of our time.’
[Jon D Payne on Iain Murray’s new biography of John MacArthur: Servant of the Word and Flock at Reformation21.]
