#OctTBR2022 Day 2: A little more time with The Doctor

[What is #OctTBR2022? I explain it here.]

What They Are: A pair of books about Dr. Lloyd-Jones’ life, ministry, and theology by Jason Meyer and Steven Lawson.

Why I’m Reading Them: It’s a good idea and beneficial to read books about the lives of faithful men and women of the past. Considering what an impact MLJ has had and is having on my life, it’s beneficial to learn what I can about the minister’s life and legacy and take the lessons to heart.

#OctTBR2022 Day 1: “Studies in the Sermon on the Mount” by Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

[What is #OctTBR2022? I explain it here.]

What Is It: This book contains sermons/lectures by “The Doctor” covering Jesus’ most famous teaching, the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7).

Why I’m Reading It: As I’ve said elsewhere, Dr. Lloyd-Jones has become one of my favorite (if not my all-time favorite) theologian. His writing is clear, crisp, logical, and impactful. As others have described him, his preaching is “logic on fire.” I have studied the Sermon on the Mount and read the sermons and teaching of other faithful pastors on this section of Scripture, but I know I’ll be greatly blessed by sitting with The Doctor and hearing him break it down.
