Book Description

No New Testament Epistle is more foundational to the Christian faith than Romans, and no chapter in Romans more basic than its first chapter. To few chapters did Dr. Lloyd-Jones give more thought or more emphasis. He viewed it as the supreme demonstration of the necessity for the gospel, the announcement of divine truths worthy of the attention of the whole world.

    Before reading this book, I had the bad habit of flying over the introductory words in the Bible.
    “Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God.”(NET) And an even more of an embarrassment is the fact that I went through this exact verse in several New Testament Greek studies.
    It is exciting to feel these introductory words while Lloyd-Jones brings out their meaning and importance. By feeling I mean, words that cut one deep. An avid reader will get my point. As Lloyd-Jones says, Paul was not just an apostle. Paul was CALLED to be an apostle. Called? Called by Christ Himself… called before the foundation of the world. Called to herald forth the Gospel of Christ to a Godless world. Reading the writings of Puritans like D Martyn Lloyd-Jones opens one up to a world full of those who unashamedly believe in the Sovereign God of the Universe. Believe in that God’s Sovereign Word and His Sovereign Grace that saved them. This is how Lloyd-Jones inspires me. I get so much more out of reading his sermons than from listening to them. Banner of Truth, thank you for publishing Lloyd-Jones and the many other Puritan writings.
    I want to thank two very nice people at Banner of Truth. Pat and Beth, you have both touched me deeply. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
