Book Description

In Romans chapter 6 the Apostle Paul takes up the issue of antinomianism — a dangerous perversion of the gospel’s teaching that has often troubled the church. The antinomian says, ‘Ah, this gospel is a wonderful message of salvation by the free grace of God. Therefore, it doesn’t matter at all how you live as a believer; you are saved once and forever.’ The Apostle shows us why some people have misused the doctrine of the grace of God in that way, and explains why Christians — ‘the servants of righteousness’ — must not live in sin or let sin reign within.

  1. Martijn de Groot

    Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones himself said that he could not start with his series on Romans until he has really understood chapter 6. This fact alone indicates that it is a very important book. When I read it, I was a Christian for 18 years, but these sermons helped me to realize definitely what it means to be a new man, to have a new nature – and to apply this fact in the struggle against the plague of my heart. This book is not for lazy, superficial Christians, or maybe right for them because Lloyd-Jones crashes the heresy of antinomianism. When you have the intention to work through the 14 volumes of the Romans series, I recommend you to start with this profound volume.

  2. S. Adams

    I fondly remember after being a believer for 10 years and still having no solid answers as to why I still sinned, who I really was in Christ, and the measure of victory I could experience. God showed me Romans 3-6 over and over and Ch. 6 consumed me and so I had to know more how it applied to my life. LLoyd-Jones opened the door wider than I had ever seen it open with The New Man. Later, Ferguson tore ripped that door off its hinges with his Banner book “Devoted to God” in the 4th chapter and 2nd appendix of that book.
