Logic on Fire: The Life and Legacy of Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones
“Dont concentrate on Lloyd Jones fame all of us praise God that he had the extended influence that he had, and that he still has today, but the core of that influence was what the man was. If you remember Iain Murray in the film saying, when you were around this man, you felt like you had been around a man who knew God. Thats the core of Lloyd Jones. He knew the Word of God, he knew his God, he was a man of prayer, he was a man of the Word, he preached that word, he relied on Gods means, and then he let it do its work.... Another thing that I love about the film is that it shows what a warm person LJ was in his family relations, though he was sober when he was in public ministry in the pulpit. I think thats a wonderful combination to see.”See All

“I think it was Packer who said, to hear Lloyd Jones was not so much to hear and analyze and experience a piece of oratory, but to come into the sense of the presence of God. I think he did that, perhaps, in the 20th century, better than anybody.”See All

“Personally, I would like to think that he was actually far more interested in God coming than he was interested in a narrow view of revival. He was too God-centered to be interested in merely the horizontal.”See All

When Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones gave a series of lectures on the subject of preaching in 1969, he coined a term that became an emblematic description of his own ministry. “What is preaching?”, he asked. “Logic on fire!” But what does it mean and how does it manifest itself in preaching? Logic on Fire: The Life and Legacy of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones charts the story of this remarkable man, widely considered one of the most influential preachers of the 20th century.
More than simply a recounting of the man’s life, Logic on Fire examines Lloyd-Jones’s home life, his spiritual influences, the emphasis he brought to his two pastorates, the way he sought a union of “logic” and “fire” in preaching, as well as his continued relevance and influence in evangelicalism today. Logic on Fire emphasizes not only the need for clarity in preaching, tenderness in pastoring, and carefulness in worship, but also a humble dependence upon God to make the work of the ministry effective.
