From the outset of his ministry in South Wales in 1927 Dr. Lloyd–Jones was an evangelistic preacher, as can be seen in this collection of twenty–one sermons from his ministry there. As with the early preaching of George Whitefield and Robert M’Cheyne, they show why the gospel is the most urgent, glorious and transforming of all messages. As a book specifically on the subject of conversion and the beginning of the Christian life, the Publishers believe this will be one of the most popular and valuable of all the Lloyd–Jones titles.
This book contains twenty-one sermons preached by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones during the early years of his ministry in Port Talbot, South Wales, from 1927-38. The book is an excellent example of evangelistic preaching. Subjects covered include the parable of the prodigal son, the wide and the narrow gate, the healing of Jairus' daughter, and repentance. In each sermon Lloyd-Jones gets right to the heart of the matter. He deals with any false notions that people may have regarding the true Christian faith. He shows the hopeless situation that man finds himself in - a sinner, unable to make peace between himself and God by his own efforts. In fact, even the title of the first sermon in the book sums up this point. It is based on Mark 10:26-27 and is entitled 'Christianity-Impossible with men.' He then goes on to show that the only hope for mankind lies in God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ and His death on the Cross for sinners. Each sermon stands out as being thoroughly Christ-centred and this is a lesson that preachers today would do well to consider. However, he does not simply present facts. In each sermon he challenges the reader to repent of their sin and submit to Christ: "Believe on Him tonight and give yourself to His keeping" (p116). This is a book that is well worth having. Anyone involved with preaching today should study it carefully. However, other Christians should find it very helpful too.
