Lloyd-Jones on the Christian Life: Doctrine and Life as Fuel and Fire (Theologians on the Christian Life)
Meyer, Jason C.
“I wrote in the Directors Statement for the documentary Logic on Fire that it is as important for our generation to understand why Martyn Lloyd-Jones made the choices he did in life and ministry as it is to understand him on Romans, Ephesians, the Sermon on the Mount, or spiritual depressionand that is saying quite a lot. Jason Meyers excellent book navigates the reader ad fontes, to the Doctors own understanding of the Scriptures, and proves that his unshakable confidence in them was the fuel to his fire. Lloyd-Joness life is still giving light and heat to the church today, and I pray this book will be a conduit that brings much illumination to our day and generation. I commend this book to you heartily and enthusiastically.”See All

“In our day, popularity is easy to come by, but enduring significance is not. Many people who are liked and retweeted today will be forgotten tomorrow. However, there are some people who have been significant but are not well known. In this volume, Meyer introduces us to a man whose name may not be trending but whose effect on countless Christians and pastors is far more noteworthy than many realize. It is my hope that Meyers book will expand the influence of Martyn Lloyd-Jones to a new generation of Christians who are in desperate need of his voice.”See All

“Martyn Lloyd-Jones stood out in two compelling ways: theological depth and spiritual power. The Doctor therefore represents what we most need afresh in our generation, especially as we pastors long to preach the biblical gospel under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. This wonderful new book by Jason Meyer meets our need, not by idealizing a man but by drawing us into deeper personal reality with the living God.”See All

“When I was a young boy, my father took me to hear Martyn Lloyd-Jones speak. I remember little of the occasion, except my fathers deep desire that I hear the Doctor preach while he was still alive. My mother was a regular at his Friday night lectures on Ephesians. Lloyd-Jones was a major influence on my parents and, through them, on me. So it is a joy to welcome this book on his understanding of the Christian life. Read it to discover what drove this titan of the twentieth-century church. But better still, let the Doctor examine your Christian life, diagnose its ailments, and prescribe a God-centered remedy.”See All

“Both for those already familiar with the published works of Martyn Lloyd-Jones and for those taking them up for the first time, Meyers work will be prized. From a thorough knowledge of the sources, he highlights and clarifies the truths which Lloyd-Jones preached, and, most importantly, he does it with the same heartbeat. It has done me good to read this book.”See All

“My few personal meetings with the Doctor before he entered what he called the Glory in March 1981 were marked by personal encouragement. That spring, at a conference of several hundred pastors who were asked to bear witness to the life and ministry of the late Dr. Lloyd-Jones, a strong majority of those who spoke fastened on the countless kindnesses the Doctor had displayed to them. Jason Meyer rightly and capably emphasizes the extraordinary unity of doctrine and experience in Lloyd-Joness life. This Christian vitality in his life was other-focused: the outworking of the gospel of the triune God in the life of the believer was not pursued in an individualist fashion, but sought the good of other believers, the benefit of the church, and the glory of God.”See All

“Lloyd-Jones would surely have approved of the approach of this book: a whole Christian life requires an understanding and application of the whole Bible, the whole gospel, and the whole body of Christian doctrine. Meyer is to be congratulated on his remarkable achievement of giving us in a clear and concise portrait of Lloyd-Jones and his ministry, wisely grounded in a splendid summary of his exposition of the gospel.”See All

Martyn Lloyd-Jones, commonly referred to as "the Doctor," had a successful career in medicine before abandoning it all to become a preacher in London. His sermons--displaying the life-changing power of biblical truth--diagnosed the spiritual condition of his congregation and prescribed the gospel remedy.
This study of Lloyd-Jones's life will encourage and exhort readers to consider the role of the knowledge of God, the power of the Spirit, and the fullness of Christ in their daily lives, allowing them to discover the inseparable union of doctrine and the Christian life.
