Publisher's Description

For over 30 years, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones ministered at Westminster Chapel in London. Today, he is widely considered one of the greatest preachers of the 20th century. Based on a series of lectures originally given by Lloyd-Jones to the students of Westminster Theological Seminary in 1969, this collection of essays on the essence of powerful preaching has become a modern classic.

Lloyd-Jones defends the primacy of preaching, showing that there is no substitute, and he challenges preachers to take their calling seriously: “The most urgent need in the Christian Church today is true preaching.”

This 40th anniversary edition includes the original text of Preaching and Preachers with the addition of sub-headings and discussion questions to aid the reader. In addition, this anniversary edition includes essays by:

  • Bryan Chapell
  • Mark Dever
  • Kevin DeYoung
  • Ligon Duncan
  • Timothy Keller
  • John Piper

Each essay reflects on the impact that this book and/or the ministry of Lloyd-Jones had on their preaching.

Includes a Foreword by R. T. Kendall

“A book that is both inspirational and flawed. Any volume which uses the term 'abomination' has to be worth reading in an era where being 'hurt,' 'offended' and humorless are virtually compulsory evangelical assets and have the power of Kantian imperatives to crush all opposition and send even the bold and the brave running for evangelically correct cover. Seriously, to preach well, one must be excited about preaching. This book can help with that—even if I think the whole 'unction' business is just so much misty-eyed Welsh mysticism....”
- Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary

“It is one of the most important books on preaching in print. I personally owe it a debt I can never repay.”
- Tim Keller, Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

“Preachers need to hear this kind of preaching as a partial antidote to the relentless trivializing of preaching in our day.”
- John Piper, Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis

“This book—and indeed Lloyd-Jones' preaching (which this book so well introduces)—is one of the main shapers of my own understanding of preaching.”
- Mark Dever, Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC

“I know of no other book on preaching that will motivate you to preach like this one will. Read Lloyd-Jones again, or for the first time, and you may just discover there's Spirit-given life left in your dry bones.”
- Kevin DeYoung, Pastor of University Reformed Church in East Lansing, MI

“Martyn Lloyd-Jones was one of the titanic figures of twentieth-century Chrsitanity. Why? I think the answer is simple—his profound commitment to biblical exposition and the ggreat skill with which he preached and taught the Word of God. In an age when so many preachers seem so unsure of what preaching is, in Martyn Lloyd-Jones we find a minster who leaves no doubt.”
- R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
