The country was on the brink of a devastating invasion. Famine threatened. Violence and social injustice filled the land. Habakkuk the Old Testament prophet had every reason to sink into despair. Where was God in these turbulent times?
D. Martyn Lloyd–Jones was one of the twentieth century’s foremost preachers and Bible teachers. The parallels he draws between the message of Habakkuk and the crisis–ridden West are still powerfully relevant to our own times. Here is the secret of the problem of history. No event, however catastrophic, fails to find a place in God’s loving purpose for humanity. Habakkuk’s great assertion of faith, in the midst of enormous personal upheaval and emotional strain, can be ours: ‘Yet I will rejoice in the LORD … The Sovereign LORD is my strength.’
An short but profound book from one of the finest preachers of the twentieth century. The book contains six chapters, which were sermons preached on the book of Habbakuk. The author shows that things don't often work out as we would wish, and that sometimes our prayers are not answered in the way that we would like. The author highlights 'the prophet's perplexity' at the circumstances facing his nation, but then goes on towards the end to show how Habbakuk comes to a point of trust and humble submission before the Almighty God, even though all things precious to him might be lost. The last two chapters give us valuable lessons on 'how to pray' and 'how to rejoice in tribulations.' During the course of the book, we can see how the prophet moves 'from fear to faith.' These sermons were initially preached during World War II so the content would have been rather significant for the hearers living in those troublesome days, who would have wandered what would happen to their nation. However, the message is still a timely one for us today. I personally find this shorter book much more refreshing than the exhaustive Romans and Ephesians series by the same author. Also, in addition, it is worth pointing out that there are (regrettably) very few titles by Dr. Lloyd-Jones based on the Old Testament, so this one is well worth having.
