Review 1 for D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones: The First 40 Years 1899-1939
Date:July 17, 2007
Absolutely excellent! These two volumes are extremely interesting and will hold the reader's attention; while interweaving doctrine and issues, many of which can set many free, because it is loaded with truths and principles that will help a Christian with many practical problems that are bound to be encountered at some time in his life. Had I only had this 5-10 years ago! Yet Thy will be done! I cannot express the blessing these two volumes gave me! They were too short! Don't skip the first volume because the 2nd "appears" more interesting--they are both invaluable.

This is a wonderful work of biography that will buoy the faith of many a sagging saint. The life of D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones is a powerful testimony to the glory of the sovereign God who enjoy confounding the wisdom of the world and showing it to be a mere chimera. My own heart was warmed and my faith strengthened in hearing the recounting of God's faithfulness to his called servant.
