Martyn-Lloyd Jones says in his book Authority, that there is a crisis of authority in society today. All inherited authority is suspect, being regarded as incompatible with man‚Äôs freedom, yet what has resulted is a disordered and dehumanized society.
But the source of this confusion lies in the church itself. The authority of the Bible has been called in question and commonly today the church is left without any sense of divine authority.
Dr. Lloyd-Jones faces this issue as he discusses the only road to recovery. We must reassert the divine authority of Christ, of his Word and of his Spirit or face ‚Äòthe blackness of darkness forever‚Äô. This book was first published by the InterVarsity Press, gives basic treatment to a theme of enduring importance.
