Crossway Books & Bibles The Assurance of Our Salvation: Exploring the Depth of Jesus' Prayer for His Own

Known as the 'Thursday night discourse' chapters 13-17 in the gospel of John constitute what is perhaps the most intimate teaching of the disciples by Jesus. But chapter 17 is of particular interest because it records an the most intimate interaction--a prayer--between Jesus and God the Father. It is striking, revealing, and intense.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones, widely regarded as one of the finest and intense expositor's of the Bible is perhaps the ideal preacher, for unpacking and opening up this prayer both to our hearts and our minds. In The Assurance of our Salvation: Exploring the Depth of Jesus Prayer for His Own Martyn Lloyd-Jones provides his customary verse-by-verse exposition of John 17 and in doing so lays before us the richness, the depth, the wonder--and teh assurance--of God's plan of salvation.

This collection of sermons definitely rivals Lloyd-Jones' "Sermon on the Mount" for 'classic' status. Here is a book that certainly epitomizes Lloyd-Jones' definition of preaching as "Logic on fire". Many preachers talk a lot about expository preaching--Lloyd Jones did it. Many speak about the need to get back to the Word of God--Lloyd-Jones camped there. If it sounds peculiar to anyone that in this collection are 48 sermons on one chapter of Scripture (John 17), join the club (I did as well). But what a tremendous blessing each one is. There is no redundancy here. This is the Word of God being exposited by a very gifted individual. I HIGHLY recommend!
