ENDORSEMENT

‘Every young preacher needs to get and study this book. It contains the wealth of wisdom common among elderly men, especially spiritual men — the kind of book that comes along only once every so often. Don’t miss it!’ — THE BIBLICAL EVANGELIST

Book Description

Martyn Lloyd-Jones’s biblically informed insight gave a certain prophetic quality to his ministry; not in the sense that he foretold the future, but rather in his God-given ability to put his finger on the essential issues, and to apply the burden of God’s Word. Knowing the Times brings together a number of addresses which exhibit this vibrant prophetic character. Those who heard Dr. Lloyd-Jones speak in a variety of contexts will easily recall the kind of impact which accompanied addresses like these. All will agree that Knowing the Times is one of the most significant Lloyd-Jones titles ever published. The addresses reprinted here remain ‘tracts for the times’. The publishers believe that they have the potential to be used in the preparation of another generation who will be like the children of Issachar referred to in 1 Chronicles 12:32: ‘Men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do.’

  1. Michael Veitch

    An outstanding and timeless book. Received it as a Christmas gift and finished it within weeks. Ready to start it again immediately. Lloyd Jones at his best. Sorely relevant in these troubled times.
