Book Description

Romans 12 shows us Christian men and women living out the new life given to them in Christ in relationship with their fellows in the church, exercising the gifts they have received, wrestling with problems and opposition, but finally triumphing over all difficulties through the faith, hope and love that underlie all truly Christian conduct.

    From beginning to the end full of glorious content! Wonderful how Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones starts this volume. He asks the reader whether he likes it that we have arrived at the practical part of the epistle to the Romans. In chapters 1 to 11 Paul dealt with doctrine, now is conduct the theme. He compares this change with the experience of Peter, James and John after Jesus’ transfiguration on the mount. They descended to the plain life again. So we come to the everyday conduct of the Christian. Besides this I found it very clarifying what Lloyd-Jones says about the life in the church, the whole question of the gifts.
